The area of Agnontas is dense with pine trees which grow down to the beach and it is just 8 km from Skopelos Town (Chora) towards the South-West. It also functions as the second port of Skopelos town which operates largely in case of bad weather (winter months). Winds in the area are very rare making the bay a very comfortable place to be.
The area’s name is derived from the name of Agnon, an Olympic track athlete from Peparithos. Upon his victorious return from Olympia in 569 AD, the area was named for him.
The sunset is a great experience in the area because of the surroundings. Agnontas is a fishing port, with several family business small fishing boats moored there. These boats go out into the open sea every night to catch fish, lobsters and squid. The catch is then served at the various family owned fish taverns the same day the boats come in.
The pebble beach is small and organized offering sun beds and beach umbrellas. There are 2 fish tavernas, 2 café and 1 mini-market will cover most of your immediate needs. Overall, it is a lovely spot to enjoy your drink especially in the evenings as the sun sets over the boats sinking into the sea.
Access to the area is by private vehicle and organized transport both of which lead to the broader area of Agnontas and can take you within just a few meters from Agnontas beach by asphalt road within 10-12 minutes from Skopelos Town. Parking is along the road and the port.
