A nice wide sandy beach with sunbeds with umbrellas by the tavern at the entrance or at the end of the beach next too the water sport kiosk. The beach clean,just sand, sea crystal clear with a gradual entrance into the water. The sea calm and deep enough for good swimming. The tavern has good selection, though the price a bit higher. The tavern played nice music and not loud. The beach is favorite with families with children so expect some noise, louder them music from the bar. You can also play volleyball there. Some shade can be found under the fee trees if you come early. In high season can get crowded as even mid June was late afternoon nearly full. Maybe because is easily accessible, bus stop No.12 and then about 8 min / 800 m walk.

Lovely beach and not at all busy at this time of year. Beautiful taverna right on the beach serving excellent food. Clean WCs, comfy beach beds and friendly vibe. Perfect for beach lovers who do not want to be rustic…. We found it a little expensive but not sure if this is simply inflation hitting the Greek economy.

What a shame....Vromolimnos used to be one of the very best beaches in Skiathos. The water is lovely, the sand is soft and the taverna was great. Not so much in 2021. For one thing, it is virtually impossible to get a sun bed. A hotel on the far left side (when looking out to sea) has somehow managed to take over at least half of all beds, which are now reserved only for hotel guests. They then stay empty most of the day. The beds for the general public are cramped, sparse and mostly jammed under the taverna. If you’re not there before 9.30, you won’t get beds.
This frankly disappointing experience of a beach we used to adore was then made a lot worse by our lunch at Porto Paradiso taverna. This used to be a lovely place for lunch, albeit with very generous helpings. Knowing this I asked the owner if I could possibly have a half size salad.
I asked incredibly politely, told him I loved his gorgeous salad but didn’t want to leave any. I told him he could charge me the full price for this. I was not asking for a cheap meal.
His response? He rolled his eyes at me, told me it wasn’t possible, and refused point blank. What the hell kind of place is making a supposedly fresh salad up in advance? And then can’t possibly half it? Not the kind of place I want to eat.
I have grown up on Skiathos, my extended family have been coming here for over twenty years. I’ve know this owner since I was a teenager, and his attitude this year really stung me. Suffice to say my family and I will not be bothering to return here any more.

Perhaps the whole beach isn't like it, but we were at the far end of the beach on front of a restaurant which was incredibly expensive 19 euro for a club sandwich!! The music was so loud you couldn't hold a conversation in the beach area let alone the restaurant, based on this we chose not to eat here or even stay at the beach.
We stupidly paid for sofa beds 24 euro for 4, and used them 20 minutes they wouldn't refund us. I was made to feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome as a small family it was not suitable.
The each is very pebbly getting into the sea

Just one bus stop (very close to where we stayed - Skiathos Blu) away -actually you don’t need to take a bus, as you can simply walk - is a nice beach frequented by young crowds and families. Music from the bar and young people playing volleyball nearby create a lively atmosphere. The sand is fine and water clear, as everywhere in Skiathos. We enjoyed our afternoon there under the pine trees.

Here at the beginning of the season in early May we reached the beach by a short walk past wild flowers. There was nothing open on the beach which suited us. Perfect weather, 20degrees in the day and a chilly sea but fine for anyone used to swimming in the uk. A beautiful part of the island.

Great beach but a lot of people, it's a great place to show off....if that's your thing.
We actually walked from a lovely quite beach with one restaurant and a cafe in the next bay.
That was much nicer for us.

WEnt there 40 years ago and 20 years ago, so time for a revisit. Not disappointed, fantastic Porto Paradiso Restaurant now on the beach with excellent food and service. Superb place to watch the sun go down while having an evening meal and a drink.

I can totally understand why this beach gets good reviews as pretty much every beach in Skiathos is lovely.

However, I have read throughout here that people think this is the best beach on the island! Whist we all rightly have a subjective opinion, I can only assume that those who think such have not ventured too far away from the beaches that are accessible via the 'tourist' bus route (I.e stops 1-26!).

This is a a narrow sandy beach with sunbeds tightly packed in and which are all taken by early afternoon. The taverna plays that euro trash poppy sort of music constantly and all of the beach visitors seem to 'smoke' (cigarettes rather than their bodies actually smoking). It's just a mini Koukounaris in all honesty that is set up to meet the needs of the tourist and cram as many people in as possible.

If you want really decent beaches, get a quad, scooter or jeep and head to such delights as Mandraki, Eleni, Elias, Ligaries (awesome taverna here), Diamandi or the quite wonderful Mikros Aselinos beach. They are all off the beaten track and knock spots off the bigger, more touristy, popular beaches.

However, if you can't that's fine. Kanapitsa, Koukounaries, Troulos, Poros are all nearby and all better than Vromolimnos in my humble opinion.

Of the very many beaches on the island, when it is not too busy, this is the best. Best sand, go towards the water sports end for the best beds and piece & quiet and the Taverna is perfect for location, food, drinks, service and a perfect sunset.
