Island where Mamma Mia was filmed
The island where Mamma Mia was filmed is beautiful Skopelos island in Greece. Most of the scenes filmed outdoor were taken on Skopelos island during August-September in 2007. The main beach on Skopelos island where most scenes were filmed is called Kastani. But ever since the movie it has become worldly known as the Mamma Mia beach.
At Kastani beach the producers of the movie had built a jetty and a small beach bar for the filming of the beach scenes. Both of these were later removed once the filming was over. This is why when you visit the beautiful Kastani bay you will not see any of them. The locals preferred to leave the beach in tact to its natural beauty.
So what makes Mamma Mia beach so unique and why is there so much talk about it?
Kastani beach will simply take your breath away with its stunning crystal clear green-blue waters. Most of our guests describe it as a: «a natural pool». On both sides of the beach you will discover little caves. You can swim and snorkel inside them while being surrounded by the greenest scenery of pine trees that reach the sea level.
On our day sailing trips we visit the beautiful Mamma Mia bay and anchor for a swimming stop. Here you will enjoy sunbathing and relaxing on our fully cushioned teak deck; under the sounds of the films soundtrack. You will be able to snorkel with the snorkelling gear provided on board, and take unique photographs to treasure a life time.
Most of our guests who have travelled the world and have been to many swimming-snorkelling destinations; describe Kastani bay as the most amazing crystal clear waters they have ever swam in. All you need to do is book a day sailing cruise with us on board the AEGEO. You will discover this stunning & extremely popular bay for yourselves.
