Kastani beach in Skopelos

A few kilometres north of Milia beach is the worldwide famous Kastani beach. The fame comes from that the beach was one of the filming locations for the Mamma Mia movie. In fact, it is only here, and at the rock and the church of Agios Ioannis sto Kastri, that it is possible to recognize the filming locations from the movie. Many scenes were shot in other places in Greece, and in a studio.

Kastani beach is just as nice as the neighbouring beach of Milia. It is not as long, but the sand is lighter and finer. When I came to Kastani the first time, there was nothing here, it was an oasis. But after the movie had premiered, everyone wanted to see the famous beach. Today there is a beach bar and a landscaped lawn with sunbeds and umbrellas.

If you go to the left of the beach you will soon arrive at a bathing-place with rocks and two tiny beaches. One of these beaches I baptized to Kalimera (the Swedish version of Kalispera) beach a few years ago, just because I liked it so much. I have named other beaches that had no names to Kalimera beach, including a beach on Koufonissi.
