snorkelling in skiathos/troulos

Hi, We are going to troulos and we were wanting to know if the island has any good areas for snorkelling.

We are a family with the youngest being 13 and she is a good strong swimmer.

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.

Hi There

We stayed at Troulos recently. To be fair the water around the entire island is extremely clear with good vision even if its less than calm as the sand- as much as there is, is fairly heavy so does not seem to churn up. We snorkelled on various beaches but was a little disappointed i that as clear as it was there was not that much by way of large fish- of course that may change as the water warms up!

Am sure you'll enjoy the various beaches- no particular one better than another- provided you make for the extremeties and not the centre. Koilios was small, sheltered and had rocks both ends- beware the urchins, maybe some water shoes?

Thanks for the reply Sussexmick, made note of the advice on the sea urchins. I hope the warmer sea does bring some more fish, if not we'll still have a good look around.

Once again thanks for the reply.
