Neo Klima is a relatively new village on the West coast of Skopelos Island. We are a welcoming community and we enjoy some of the most beautiful views available on the island.
The village has expansive sea views and several large beaches with sun loungers and other services during the summer season. We are bordered by majestic forest covered mountains for you to explore, with many paths accessed from Neo Klima.
Our village can provide visitors some of the finest food and accommodation offered on Skopelos. We are also proud of our community and the traditions we hold dear.
Neo Klima is a great place for fun and activity, but it's also the perfect place to relax and indulge in some local treats. We have a wide selection of eateries for you to visit during your stay and some wonderful local produce available in our village shops. Visitors can expect to find traditional Greek cuisine, local baked goods and locally produced cheese, olive oil, honey and (the famous) Skopelos Pie available throughout the village.
Neo Klima has three gorgeous beaches for you to enjoy during your stay. Beach loungers and showers are provided on the two largest beaches either side of the port. Both are a mix of pebble and sand, although the beach on the right of the port may be better for smaller children. Also, you don't mind a little bit of a walk over some rocky areas, you will be rewarded with a relaxing time on Hovolo Beach, voted the 8th best beach in Greece, 2016.
Neo Klima is situated beneath a series of majestic forest covered mountains that offer a great opportunity for hiking and exploration. Many of the footpaths are signposted but it's worth asking locals about interesting routes into the forest from the village.
The waters on the coast of Neo Klima are home to a variety of sea life. There are plenty of fish for those interested in catching their dinner from the port or from one of the beaches. Fishing tackle and other gear can be purchased at our local shop and throughout Skopelos Island.
For divers (professionals and beginners) there are lots of interesting reefs and a few wrecks to explore. Skopelos Island is home to the Skopelos Dive Centre where you can take snorkel tours, dive in open water and even get official certification. Check out the link below for more information about diving around the Sporades islands.
Neo Klima is a great place to set off on a kayaking adventure. Tours can often be seen from the beach enjoying the calm seas and beautiful sights around the Western coastline. Participants often enjoy dolphin sightings and even get a chance to see the elusive Mediterranean Monk Seal (Monachus monachus). Click the link below for more information.
If you are interested in getting some exercise whilst visiting Neo Klima, please take advantage of our free to use sports areas. These include a large basketball/ netball court, tennis courts and a football pitch. There are also great spaces for jogging near the main beach. Always make sure you have plenty of water and sunscreen while using these facilities during the summer months.
Feel free to visit our local traditional Orthodox Church. Services are held regularly and its church bells can often be heard throughout the village. There are also regular religious and cultural observances throughout the year such as the various Saint's days and our local carnival. You are welcome to join the celebrations but please be respectful of our traditions.
Our little community is in the perfect spot for short trips to other places on interest around Skopelos island. We're situated in the middle of the West coast which is home to some of the islands most popular beaches. We are also very close to other villages such as Panormos and Glossa and only a short drive from the famous Agios Ioannis church (the Mama Mia Chapel). Please browse below for more information.
The gravesite at Sedoukia is situated about a half-hour drive from Neo Klima. Be sure to have your camera ready on the way because the mountain roads have some spectacular views. The site can be accessed by hiking from the parking area along a rough foot path through the forest of Mount Karya. There are astounding panoramic views of Skopelos, the surrounding ocean and neighbouring islands throughout the hike. Check out the video above for more information.
One of the advantages of staying in Neo Klima is that we are situated so close to some of the island's most beautiful beaches. By heading South out of the village you'll have access to Kastani Beach, Milia Beach and Panormos Beach. These wonderful locations can all be accessed by car or by using the local bus service. Both Kastani and Milia offer beach bar and beach lounger services, while Panormos is a popular tourist destination with many bars, cafes and tavernas to choose from.
Delphi Mountain dominates the skyline from most places on Skopelos being as it is the highest peak on the island. It is covered in pine forest and is accessible by foot only. For those experienced and adventurous hikers willing to make the climb it offers 360 degree views of the island. However, we would warn that it is quite a difficult journey and all safety cautions must be taken when attempting the trek. Make sure to take plenty of water and sun lotion with you when exploring in the summer months.
Made famous by the hit musical Mamma Mia, The Agios Ioannis Church is an extremely popular tourist destination on Skopelos Island.Situated North of Neo Klima, it is accessible via car (approx 25 minute drive) or bus and boat tours out of the main port in Skopelos town (Chora). While the film version of the church has a large interior, please be aware that the chapel is actually quite small inside. Please be respectful and recognise that it is a working place of worship for the people of the island.
