Stafylos - Skopelos (Greece)

Stafylos. Stafylos is a tourist village on the Greek island of Skopelos, four kilometres south of Skopelos town. It lies on the south coast of the island and it is surrounded by grape orchards, olive groves and pine trees.

The name Stafylos is derived from the Greek word stafyli, meaning grape. According to Greek mythology, Stafylos was a young man, who was sent by King Minos of Crete to Skopelos to explore the island. He later became the first King of Skopelos.

In a tomb located on the peninsula next to the beach of the village, all kinds of objects have been found from the 16th century BC, which is a proof that Skopelos was indeed connected with Minoan Crete.

 The narrow sandy/pebble beach is located between the town and the peninsula. It is very nice and located in a wind sheltered bay. The peninsula is actually a large white rock with green trees.

On the road leading to the beach are a number of restaurants. You can park the car on this road and walk to them. When you walk through the street on the left you will see the beach and the peninsula and on the right are the white and red rocks in a beautiful setting in the water.
