Lovely beach ,great for plane spotting

Just sit or lie on the beach listening to the waves and music and wait for a plane to take off right above you,its pretty spectacular and definitely different,worth a visit.

Always go here to see George at his beach bar, he is such a great character. Fantastic when the planes come straight over your head when you are lying sunbathing. Have a good wedding George all the best.

This was the first beach we visited on our holiday. Being slightly new to the game we walked it and although it's a beautiful walk I would recommend a quad or other transport, just as it's a couple of kilometers from Skiathos Town. Busses don't run to this part of the island so you have to make your own way.... More

Great little beach with a taverna nice tasty snack bar located at the bottom of the runway. With stunning views. Only thing I had to complain about was when falling asleep and the airplane takes off literally on top of you. Get a bit of a shock get a lovely breeze off the sea also which keeps you cool. Probably... More

This is not the most popular beach on the island but that means that it's not crazy-packed with people and sun loungers. It was windy on the day we went so the sea was a bit rough as it usually is on the northern side of the island in these conditions. The sand is pretty rough, almost shingle, but the... More

Better beaches on the island, but this is unique if you want to see the planes taking off. Taverna is ok and seems to do well priced food but we paid 5euro for two cans of coke so a but overpriced there, we had rented a quad bike and we're just driving around the island. Good for a short stop... More

So the purpose of this review is to say that we came across this beach while looking for 2 others on this side of the island but we had to give up as the roads are not passable even with a quad bike and the walk is to long. Like many others we ended up stopping here fed up with... More

Coarse sand and pebbles. Not sure went you'd pick this when there are other much nicer beaches. Strong waves so I'm not sure exploring the rocks is very safe and you'd need to be a strong swimmer. But my rating primarily relates to the unfriendly staff at the taverna and the smelly toilets. No wifi and loud music. We're off.

Superb wild beach with a nice setting, deep water and airplanes overhead, a unique experience best enjoyed without small kids.

The water is good, but the beach is not as clean as it is supposed to be. People always come to view the planes landing
