Neo Klima, Elios
Elios is a new village, near Old Klima, built in the greenest region of Skopelos where the forest reaches the sea. A new village was established in 1980 with the residents of old Klima, who progressively abandoned their old village and began to settle in the area of the magical, pine beach of Elios. Rich forests, endless beaches, the small picturesque harbour and newly built houses are elements of the new identity of the village of Neo Klima (Elios). The beach varies from sandy to pebble with crystal clear waters and the neighbouring beach of Hovolo where the sea takes the strangest colours with the fine golden sand. For those who love to walk there are the ancient graves of Sentoukia. The Byzantine chapel of Agios Ioannis is built on an enormous rock in the sea and to approach one has to climb the 107 steps. Finally, Old Klima is located 3 km away.
Old Klima is located in the north-west of the island between Elios and Glossa and 24 km from Hora. It is a verdant village, built amphitheatrically, with old stone houses that overlook the Aegean Sea. There is the Magdalini traditional bakery producing aromatic traditional bread. Klima is made up of two small settlements, Ano Klima and Lower Klima or Mahalas. The nearest beach is Elios. Most of the residents of Klima moved to the village of Elios. Most of the houses have been bought by foreigners and Greeks for use as rural residences.
