This beach is a nice quiet retreat if that's what you want, the toilets are not so good though just a hole in the floor, however the one beach bar there was very nice. It took just under 20 mins to walk there through the forest and quite steep at times

The short off road way to reach the beach is enough to separate Mandraki from the commercial beaches of the west coast. The beach is really beautyful, equipped with enough sunbeds to host the visitors and with a bar to serve cold drinks and easy food. The perfect combination of comfort and nature make this beach suitable for everyone.

This was the best beach we have been to during our stay in Skiathos. It is really huge and located in a harbour.

Never crowded. Just a few parasols and sunbeds at one end however we much prefer the other end which is filled with driftwood shelters made by various visitors some of which were surprisingly complex! Nice little unobtrusive taverna selling drinks and food but fortunately no intusive music.

Getting to the beach: From the bus station no. 23 take it in right, after 200 meters enter the pine forest. The beach is reached after a 20-minutes travel on foot through a beautiful pine forest. The road is sandy and difficult, but worth the effort. I was impressed by the tranquility of the beach. I think that is the... More

This is a great quiet beach , never crowded and with a good taverna that doesn't blast out music. On a windy day waves are great but prepare to be buffetted! Some trek along dirt / sand roads but stunning views along the way. Great for sunsets looking towards mainland Greece.

Wonderful my favorite beach in skiathos. Gorgeous clear clean sea with lovely clean sand. Very useful bar with light snacks. We enjoyed a visit from three swans.. very unusual in sea water.
