We walked through the pine forest - well worth it. There's very little at the location but for peace and quite it's worth a look.

Beautiful and breezy beach, bit tricky to get to but well worth it. Food and toilets bit dodgy, but views and water are fab. This coast line is the best on Skiathos and is well worth exploring. The breezes keep you cool for real easy tanning! Water very appealing and easy to swim in.

a delightful tavern on a brilliant beach ,amazed at what could be produced from such a small tavern in such a remote spot well worth the 30 minute walk across the island , many thanks to the staff for their good food and memorable service

A lovely beach on the north of the island. You will need a car to access this beach over the dirt tracks (preferably a 4x4). The Skiathos beaches are amazing and all so different. Mandraki is reached through the protected forest area and is backed by forest trees and red sand. One end used to be a nudist beach but... More

Mandraki beach can be reached by catching the bus to bus stop 23 then its a pleasant 20 minute walk through the woods. The beach is a cove with nice waters and much quieter than the other beaches. Small beach hut taverna for food and drinks and they serve the most gorgeous potatoes done in olive oil and herbs -... More

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.
