I'd like to tell you not to bother with this beach....but only to avoid it getting any busier. They've increased the sunbed/shades, and added a shower and changing cubicle. The Taverna hasn't changed a dot, long may that last. The extremities of the beach still favour the nudists, so be aware if you are sensitive to nudism. Strange how some... More

One of the best beaches we visited in Skiathos. Lovely little taverna, just had beer, chips and chicken souvlaki but the setting was perfect and the food good. Well worth a visit

We were looking for a quiet retreat and was not disappointed, from the welcome reception of the friendly staff this is a gem set in the nature reserve of Skiathos. The simple breakfast to the evening meal in the restaurant was a delight and excellent value. The room was a little small however beautifully set out.

Really nice beach reached by walking through Pine trees. The walk can be a trek so take water with you. Nice rustic taverna serving jugs of wine when you need a break from the sun. Some areas of the beach are pebbly on entry to the sea and can be awkward but once beyond these, the sea is fairly shallow... More

Friendly, great value and amazing chips! One portion is enough for two. Great place to rest from the sun and enjoy a cool beer and look at the beautiful view.

Gorgeous beach glistens in the sunlight, and the sea beautiful just love it. Not so keen on the toilet facilities though!

Reaching this beach requires a car, or it can be reached on foot with a lovely 20-25 minute walk from bus stop 23 through the pine forest (walk past the caravos hotel and keep going, when you get to the crossroads keep straight on). Due to the relative difficulty to reach this beach in much quieter than both Koukounaries and... More

There are three options to get to these beaches. The first one is to hire a car and drive through the forest, there is plenty of space under the shade of the trees to park up and take a short walk to the beach. The other two options, and by far the best, are to walk all the way. From... More

We got the bus to stop 23 and then walked for 25 mins down a sandy track that is quite shady to get to this beach, you can drive down it so far if you have a car. Not as busy as the other beaches due to the walk but worth it. It has sunbeds and parasols at 8 euros... More
