Great beach, a little bit wild. Nice sand. More waves and more wind compared to the southern beaches.

Great beach, with the best kind of sand, the kind that doesn't stick on your skin for ever. Big beach with a tavern, a snack bar and some sunbeds. The water is deeper than the other typical beaches of the island and the view is amazing. Nothing but sea and sky as far as the eye can see. If you're... More

Large sandy beach on the western side of the island. Very windy all seasons. Easy access into water. Safe road takes you right to the beach. Big taverna is located on the spot, so plan to get some food there, or enjoy the frappe if wind gets too strong. For more info, videos and travel guides -- see my profile... More

This is a lovely beach but requires your own transport or a long walk. There is a nice Taverna for lunch and refreshments and plenty of space for parking. This big beach is a nice change from the more busier beaches, and has nice clean sand with lots of driftwood ashore. Well worth a visit if hiring a vehicle.

Actually our favourite beach of the 5 we visited since it was quiet, nice sand and sea, good taverna with clean loos etc. So everything you wanted and not busy, lacking in facilities etc. It only just got its license for sunbeds on about Monday 13 June (blame delay on Greek govt who Skiathos local govt. owed money to...).

By far my favourite beach on the island - rarely I have I seen more than ten people at a time on this beach which is probably because it is a fair way from the nearest bus stop. There is a nice taverna and it is a great beach for picking up bits of driftwood and pebbles.

You need transport to get here but worth the trip. Lovely place for picking up driftwood and pebbles. Nice taverna and lovely views. And the best bit is it is quiet!!

Huge sandy beach, very wide. Since bus doesn't reach there, the number of tourists is limited, so ideal if you like some freedom and quiet. There are sunbeds and a tavern. When I visited it was moderate wind.
