This charming fishing hamlet is only 8 kilometers away from Skopelos town and easily reached via the local bus service. Its small and sheltered shingle beach -with calm sea and waterside taverns- enjoys scenic sunsets as it is facing directly west. Popular and crowded in the summer, it is ideal for families, and there is a mini-market open during the season.
Agnontas is used as a second harbor when the weather is rough and the approach into the town’s harbor by hydrofoils and ferryboats gets difficult. If you have your own transport you will always find plenty of parking spaces on the long jetty of the port, to the left side.
It got its name from the runner Olympic winner Agnon, in 569 B.C. When the winner returned from Olympia, he landed at this port, which was named after him.
