So you get off the bus as stop 23 the walk through the incredible Koukonaris Pine woods for 20 minutes, go left at the Cross Road paths and another 10 minutes will bring you down, down to the horseshoe bay of sparkley sand with the orange sandstone cliffs and the best beach bar anywhere on the island.

This is a really good beach, very long and almost empty when we visited. Perfect sand although the open and quickly deep water throws up quite a swathe of seaweed. But please do not let that put you off. A visit is totally recommended by any beachlover.

Mandraki, was I think our favourite beach. Lovely walk to get there with not many obstacles and quite straightforward. The water was clear, warm and easy to get into - no stones. The tavern was superb especially the oregano potatoes. Very friendly. The WC leaves a lot to be desired but hey this is a beach. Was clean but basically... More

The location is fabulous. You get to walk through the forest for 25' only to get to a fab spot with a terribly kept beach and a poorly managed food shack.

What a nice beach. Not many tourists. and the bay is open and wide so if you get there for about 9am in September and you go for a swim...then you are one of 3 in the water...totally relaxing we will be coming here again!

Park in the woods and walk the short way to the beach. There is a Taverna serving nice fresh fish and salads and you sit overlooking the sea. Sunbeds are available and snorkelling good on the left (west) side.

We have been visiting Skiathos since 2006 but only just visited this beach and so glad we did. This is by far our favourite beach and will definitely be going on our next visit. The only downfall is the roads to it as they are very very bumpy and although cars do go would recommend a 4x4. The views when... More
