Good to watch the planes.

Having been at the other end of the runway (brilliant) we thought we'd visit the other end. We had to walk there and back which was a bit of a trek. Good to watch the planes take... read more

Situated just 4 kilometres north of SKIATHOS town, it's a hop, skip and a jump from Skiathos airport. Xanemos beach offers a beach bar, clear water and last but not least a plane spotters paradise with planes taking off and landing overhead, with the surrounding mountains a great spot of photos of those metal tubes landing on runway 20..

We loved this beach. By far our favourite on Skiathos. It is near the end of the runway so you can see the planes taking off. It is used by locals more than by tourists so we preferred it to those full of fellow Brits. Only snacks are served, and even those are not always available. There is a clean... More

Whoever owns the beach bar here is determined to make it solely for 18-30 by playing loud clubbing music but the reality is most people come here to watch planes take off over their heads as it is right at the end of the runway! Its not a clean, sandy or particularly attractive beach. We couldn't sit on a lounger... More

Not a brilliant beach but there was a basic snack bar run by a very dour Jack Nicholson look alike who played... More

Beach could be cleaner,but nevertheless its nice especially with watching planes going over your head. Beach bar...well its close to disaster, i ordered pork souvlaki (me coming from capital of barbecue :- ) which was insult for all 'meat lovers'.... so stick with drinks only. Overall good to visit.

This beach is great for being able to lie back and relax, whilst being able to watch planes fly over you! The beach is at the end of the runway so when planes take off they fly right overhead! The best days to visit are a Tuesday or a Friday, as this is when most planes come into and go... More

We did like it here at the end of the runway so watching the planes take off so closely was an experience. Lovely swimming and beach but most days no facilities, no snack bar open and a man unlocks the loos if you need them.

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!
