“Like a millpond!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We visited at the end of a day touring the island and happened across this beautiful beach, the water is shallow for some distance which for me is ideal as I don't like deep water. Gritty rather than soft sand.

“Best beach in skiathos!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Worth spending a whole day here, perfect and quite.... Nice time to relax... Long winding dirt track by car..... Quite good fun and if you wanted to, venture off from mandraki to the top of the island!!!

“peaceful..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

for the ones who is looking for some peace together with marvelaous beach, cyristal water but WITHOUT any club style high volumed music around. That's one of the best beaches to go.. From Kokonaries (which is more central) 20 min walking distance, through a forest short cut.. and if you have energy on the way back just explore walking through car way. You'd definetely fall in love with the scenery that you'll see on the way back.. (well however i should warn you that rad walk would take 1,5 hrs, but it worths!)

“Our favourite beach on the island”

Beautiful golden sands at the end of a sandy woodland area and a wonderful place to watch the sun set.

“More rugged than the southern beaches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Mandraki Elias is on the northern side of the island, still one of my favourite Skiathos beaches. More rugged than the southern beaches. Great view over the beach if you get to the headland between Mandraki and Agistros.
