A few more snaps from the gorgeous whitewashed Skopolos Chora now. The town extends up to the Kastro (castle) which is the perfect spot to grab a cool drink and enjoy the view out.

Milia is another extremely beautiful beach with glimmering white sand and turquoise waters, ideal for swimming and diving. The long, white sandy shore stretches for nearly a km alongside the enchanting landscape. We end our beach day where we started it at beautiful Panormos beach.
