Being in another area of Skopelos, that you don’t visit that often, is great. Perivoliou beach on the north-east coast this year has a kantina for coffee and sandwiches. Skopelosnews told you this in an earlier post. The owner of the kantina, Spiridoula told us that she has had a good summer and that more people visit the beach this year and they are happy there is somewhere to get a drink and a snack. You can sit under the enormous tree in the shade and relax there.
On the beach are some sunbeds and umbrellas. Not the whole beach is covered with them and that makes it exactly the right combination of organized and not organized. It also means that trash is being collected and the beach is clean. We found it wonderful.
Elios town beach is more organized too this year and the word is that many more visitors were about. If they spend money in Elios we don’t know. We saw an excursion boat while we were there and many people walked into the harbor and the part of the town where the cafe’s and restaurants are. The nice new cafe Madalaki that is right next to the beach of Elios and Hovolo is a success too.
