Koukounaries: Skiathos’ most famous beach, and one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean (according to its many awards) is a paradise of fine golden sand surrounded by a dense pine forest with trees coming right down to the edge of the blue-green sea. From the beach, a natural channel leads to the enchanting Strofilia Lagoon, which is located in the heart of the forest. It has exceptional amenities and is ideal for water sports enthusiasts. The beach is equally suitable for relaxation, fun and activities, and the views at sunset are magnificent.
Banana Beach: The twin beaches of Big and Small Banana form an expanse of pine trees, golden sand and emerald waters around Krassa Bay. Big Banana is favoured by young people, as every summer it transforms into a venue for endless beach parties pulsating with life and energy, while all kinds of water sports are also available here. Small Banana is a haven of tranquillity that attracts nature lovers and nudists.
Lalaria: One of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, with its dazzling scenery of towering steep cliffs, crystal-clear waters in shades of aquamarine, and round white pebbles smoothed by the north wind. The wild beauty of the landscape is enhanced by the stunning Rock Arch of Trypia Petra at one end of the beach. Lalaria is accessible only by sea – and only when calm – by a boat that operates a regular service from Skiathos port.
Vromolimnos: A beautiful beach with golden sand and clear tranquil waters on Cape Kalamaki, named after the small shallow lake that once existed here and is now a dry marsh. It is surrounded by pine trees and has water sport facilities, restaurants and cafés, as well as a beach volleyball court. It attracts many young people, who give the place a special liveliness and energy.
Kanapitsa: One of the island’s most popular beaches, on its southern coast. The fine golden sand and the calm blue-green waters of the bay create an idyllic landscape while the coniferous trees that surround it come all the way down to the water’s edge. It is an official tourist beach, with facilities for all kinds of water sports. The location has stunning views of the sea and Cape Kalamaki, particularly on moonlit nights.
