Skopelos's longest beach, Milia is considered by many to be its best. Though still secluded, the bay is up and coming—parasols and recliners are lined halfway across the beach and there's a large taverna serving average food, thankfully ensconced by pine trees. No matter: Milia is breathtaking, thanks to its white sands, clear turquoise waters, and vibrant green trees. If you'd like to live up this aquatic romance, locate the owner of one of the villas for rent that are set right on the beach—well-tended, they are but a few short strides from the water's edge. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free); showers; toilets. Best For: snorkeling; sunset; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
