Agnondas, a westward facing small port on the south of the island, lies just eight kilometers from Skopelos Town and is the third largest port of the island. The village is named in honour of a Greek athlete that competed in and won a race at the the Olympic Games of 569 BC.
This horse-shoe shaped bay is a sheltering port for boats, yachts and ships when conditions are unsuitable for them to dock in Skopelos Town (Hora). However, it is well worth visiting Agnondas when the weather is kinder as the village occupies a very picturesque setting.
Access to Agnondas is via the main island road that takes you from Skopelos Town via Staphylos Beach to Agnondas. From here you can travel further along the south coast a short way before the road heads north along the west coast to Neo Klima (Elios), Glossa and Loutraki.
The pine tree clad slopes of the hillsides surround the port on three sides, giving the village a quaint, quiet and intimate feel. The beautiful sandy beach is lapped by the gentle, crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea.
Despite it's small size, Agnondas boasts a good range of tourist facilities, including: a hotel and several tavernas. It is also possible to source self-catering accommodation in Agnondas as there are rooms available to rent and there are private villas with pools nearby. A short drive north-westwards will lead you to Limnonari where there are more accommodation options available.
Agnondas harbour has mooring facilities for smaller boats and yachts.
