Totally OK beach, but for me as I am 26 and like to have things happening around me I did not like it that much. I would rather go to banana beach as there is music and the water is beautifull.

Get off at bus stop 23, walk along into the supermarket for provisions then take the dirt track signed to Mandraki Elias beach, walking only.....30 minute walk takes you along a sandy, dirt track beneath the pungent smell of pine trees...wooden board walks take you the last 200metres...onto a stunning sandy beach with warm waters. Toilet facilities and Taverna selling... More

Beautiful, sandy, sea bottom completely clean, beach reachable by any car via a dirt road in good state. Taverna on the beach ok.

Really liked this beach until we found an even better one! It is a sandy one, which some are not on Skiathos, some are grey, not very pretty!

Nice beach and lovely drive to get there but recommend a 4x4. Unfortunately some tourists are ignorant and don't take their rubbish away with them!

Little walk to it from bus stop 23, but well worth it! Chalky cliffs surround the white bay with beautiful views across to the mainland. The waves are more fun too because it's north facing. Only slight downside is the taverna which is tiny and quite disorganised... but the 'fried potatoes' are fab!

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.
