On the page about Limnonari I mention
that Limnonari is my favourite beach on Skopelos. But the question
is if Hovolos is not in the same class. Skopelos is indeed an island full
of surprises, there always seems to be something new to discover. We thought
we had seen everything when we at the end of our first stay on Skopelos
came to the village of Elios,
or Neo Klima as the village also is called. We saw on the map that there
was a beach nearby, a beach we had completely missed. It was Hovolo
To get to the beach, you walk via a narrow path along the water.
Initially the beach isn't mush to look at, but if you walk a little bit
further away from the narrow section at the beginning of the beach, you
will come to a real beach paradise with white sand mixed with small pebbles,
and extremely turquoise water. Even a bath coward like me, can be in the
water for several hours. At the far end is a rock that it is possible
to climb over, behind another two beaches are waiting. Do not miss Hovolo
beach, whatever you do, and if you like to snorkel, you have to bring
your snorkel and masks.
ACCOMMODATION IN ELIOS
There are no hotels at Hovolos beach, but it's only a short
distance to Elios where there are lots of accommodation to choose from.
