Skópelos’ idyllic coves and rock-top chapels were prime locations for the 2007 filming of Mamma Mia!. Velanió itself didn’t feature, but it is the longest and least-developed local beach: 600m of scenic, pine-backed sand and fine gravel, with pristine sea and views across to Évvia. It’s officially part-naturist. Since the kantína shut in 2013, you’ll have to bring water and shade. To get there, drive 4km south from Skópelos Town to road’s end at cramped, inferior Stáfylos beach, then walk (easily) five minutes east beyond the headland.
