The beach is easily accessible with good parking. A toilet an tavern with all the usual you expect on the beach. The sand is nice with some shingle near the waters edge. Plenty of sunbeds as this was not the busiest of beaches so you can arrive late an nab one. The sea is my only concern for families as... More

If you want to escape some of the crowds and hustle and bustle of the beaches on the south coast then try this one for a beautiful and wilder experience. It has an old taverna when you need a drink.

We spent 3 out of our 7 days at the beach, speaking up the sunshine, braving the bracing water and watching the goats wander by, their bells tinkling. We started each visit with bread, Greek salad, tzatziki and two big Mythos beers for lunch at the tavern and then set up on the beach for the afternoon, not leaving until... More

this beach was closet to skiathos town but was very small and had to walk through restaurants to enter the beach which is a bit awkward. it is definitely worth spending the money to get to other beaches in the area

This beach was nearest to our hotel, the Aria, and there is nothing wrong with it, but on Skiathos there are so many beautiful beaches to chose from hence only average. Sand is not as nice as other beaches, but there are plenty of watersports, beach bars and tavernas to keep you busy

Walked to this beach from Troulos which took about an hour but was very enjoyable. Good size sandy beach with a very nice taverna and covered parking bays

If you like a busy beach go just in front of the taverna,.....if you prefer a quiet area head for the right hand side. Good facilities, Toilets, shower, loungers and taverna..what esle do you need? Taverna is fine for a lunch, nice Greek salad or something of the grill, washed down with a mythos. Beach itself is sandy and water... More

I find this beach special. On our first visit the sea was calm, welcoming for snorkelling (on the left after the big stones there is another small beach reachable only by sea - rewarding after a long swin). At the second visit the sea was very angry but extremely beatiful, in great colors and a I loved it even more.

Been wanting to try this beach for a while and finally got the opportunity this year. However, we were very disappointed. The beach was crowded and the service at the taverna was slow and unfriendly. A boat trip visited whilst we were there and they clealry couldn't cope with the demand; even though they have no doubt been catering for... More
