About your Skopelos diving spot
Usually, Skopelos diving class takes place in Adrina beach, because of its suitability and convenience for first-timers. The depth ranges from 5 to 10 meters and you will have the full diving experience for approximately 40 minutes. Another diving spot we may use is Glysteri beach, a small bay in between the hills. The water is light green-turquoise and the beach sandy. The depth ranges from 5 to 15 meters making it ideal for beginners.
