“We are not beach people but ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

loved this beach!
Clean water, clean sand, clean toilets!
Reasonably priced food and drink.
Parasol with 2 sunbeds 8 euros - bit pricey but worth it for us.
Easy to get to on local bus.

“Beautiful beach but turn down the volume”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is by far the most picturesque beach on Skiathos, the sand and gentle walk into the water are why we keep going back time after time. However, there are far too many sun beds and unfortunately the music from the bars can spoil it somewhat. You know it's too loud when you feel it vibrating through the sand.
They need to get a grip of this as if allowed to go on it will end up the same as Banana beach, which has been taken over by the beautiful people and spoilt it for those who like to relax with a bit of peace and quiet and take the occasional dip in the sea.

“Skiathos Lover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This beach is supposed to be one of the best in Greece. Far too busy. Much nicer beaches on Skiathos. The walk round the lake is quite nice though

“big and busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

its a great beach if you like a lot going on. The only dislike was the pine needles on the beach - can be very painful if you stand on them. Beds are close together
