There are better beaches on the island, less busy and more private. However it is its location that makes this a popular beach since it is so close to Skiathos town. There is a suprising amount of accommodation behind the beach front which might also...More

This town beach is too crowded to be comfortable. The beach is ok if you stay in Skiathos town and are to lazy to go elsewhere. nothing more. I would recommend to take the bus to other small beaches on the island.
