Plenty of sun, sand, sea and shade.

This was our local beach and we loved it. It was not too busy but had about 30 umbrellas and the sea was perfect for swimming. Also, the water taxi would arrive regularly at... read more

A little shaley but very nice beach all the same. Good choice of cafe or restaurant to suit mood. Good range of water sports. Shallow waters but beds are a bit tired looking

This used to be s favourite beach of ours. A nice water taxi ride from Skiathos Harbour and a lovely little beach with a small restaurant. This year, there is a new restaurant (Salty Bone) which we found very expensive and the music generated all day was very loud and seemed to be club mix music. We did not really... More

Nostos beach has regretfully been ruined by noise pollution from a new beach bar which plays loud disco music from mid morning onwards. The noise covers the entire beach with monotonous thudding which overpowers even your own ipod headphones. It can even be heard from the road above the beach. Lots of people were packing up and leaving early because... More

Medium sized beach with sand and one row of sunbeds and umbrellas. Southern side is rocky and occupied by boats. Shallow sandy entry. Taverna on the beach. Mostly elder people lodged in surrounding guesthouses. 3 points out of 5. For more info, videos and travel guides -- see my profile picture.

We caught the boat to Nostos from Skiathos Town which is a bargain at €3 per person. The sand isn't quite as soft as at some of the other beaches, but once you get into the sea the bottom is smooth. There was plenty of room to find your own space, but only a few sunbeds were available. As the... More

This is a good beach to visit. Easy accessible by bus (bus stop 12) or the small boat from the Old Port (3 euros) Think this must be new owners of the Taverna, trying to update it but very limited menu and drinks were available. But beach is a good one.

Nostos was one of around 20 beaches we visited during our holiday in Skiathos and Skopolos. It's easily accessed from bus stop No 12 (perhaps 5 minutes walk) and there are options to use sunbeds or places to put your own towel down. It's relatively quiet and peaceful and the water is very clear. We visited the beach before we... More

Having just returned from our third holiday to Skiathos, I highly recommend Nostos bay. This beach simply is is heaven on earth featuring blue sea, sand, plenty of loungers and amenities to hand, such as the taverna, bar and toilets. The water is perfect for swimming in during the summer time and it is the perfect place to unwind and... More

This was our local beach and we loved it. It was not too busy but had about 30 umbrellas and the sea was perfect for swimming. Also, the water taxi would arrive regularly at Nostos and whisk you off to Skiathos town and only charge 3 euros!

A friend and I went there (May 2011) and stayed at Nostos Village. In the evenings, we would come down to the taverna for dinner as it was part of a half board. The beach was not crowded (perhaps because it was early in the season). We enjoyed the beach while waiting for dinner to start, and in between courses.
