At the north side of Skopelos, amidst the pine tree forests is the famous and beautiful beach of Milia, a long, white sandy shore that stretches for nearly a km alongside the enchanting landscape. Milia is located 13 km west of the capital and is extremely beautiful with glimmering white sand and turquoise waters, ideal for swimming and diving. The beach offers some rental facilities like sunbeds and umbrellas and a nice beach bar serving cold drinks and snacks. Right opposite the marvelous beach is the verdant islet called Dassia, adding to the idyllic scenery. A nice beach bar, sun beds and umbrellas are located in the middle of Milia. It is usually affected by the strong winds.
