There are so many beautiful beaches on Skiathos but Xanemos is not one of them! Little or no facilities, very stony no sand. Best thing that could happen to this beach is for them to extend the runway into the sea. Harsh but true!

We enjoyed it here.Its not the best beach in Skiathos,the sea comes crashing in,sometimes bringing bits of wood and sea weed etc.Not ideal for swimming in,tho some people did.The sand is quite pebbly,not good if you just want yo lie on a towel.The "beauty" of this beach is the peace and quiet,until the planes fly over.If you like a quite...

Other end of the runway from Skiathos town, beautiful beach and taverna and another view of the infamous runway where you are so close to the incoming and outgoing flights its unreal and surreal!

This beach is also a must to visit, very tranquil even when the aeroplanes are flying over it. When at the beaches binoculars are a must to look at the surrounding hillsides= AMAZING.

Our favourite beach on Skiathos. Just 1 bar but it's perfect . Chill out music playing , Mythos beer flowing , and food if you want it . This beach is at the end of the runway so you can swim in the sea and watch the airplanes fly overhead . Amazing .!!

stopped by on trip on our quad bike, it seemed popular, bar on beach had music playing and a mix of people around, not sure would choose this beach when there are so many other beautiful bays to use

This beach was OK but more small pebbles than sand. We went to this beach after watching planes take off and land at the end of the runway, this beach is at the other end of the runway.

Xanemos can be wild waves and pounding surf or gentle ripples over fine gravel. The water's clean and cool and as long as you don't mind the planes taking off and landing right over your head, it's a non-commercialised beach with a taverna looking out over the bay. Expect to hear goat bells as the herds of acrobatic mountain climbers... More
