Myself and the wife aren't particularly beachy people; very pale, like to do things on holiday, but this beach is something else. The sand is amazing, it sparkles! The water is crystal clear and like a mill pond, prefect for swimming. The sun lounges are a couple of yards from the water and there seems to be no difference between... More

Lovely beach for couples and families safe for bathing. However in the last few years it's become too popular with too many beach bars some playing loud music which I think Skiathos town council need to look at. My husband and I love Skiathos but hope it doesn't become too commercialised

I stayed in Skiathos town, where the main beach is Megali Ammos, but I took the speedboat across to Koukounaries for a couple of hours. It's a great looking beach with a sandy shore and a couple of eateries, plus a biotope, but I much preferred Megali Ammos for several reasons- there are a number of cafes/restaurants and shops nearby...

No words to describe how truly amazing this beach is! Loved it! I was amazed by the crystal clear waters. I regret not having swimwear with me but I won't do the same mistake next time!

We visited here as a family during the day and in the evening. Wasn't overly impressed during the day - very little shade around and no free sun loungers. Seemed very crowed and there wasn't much space to move around. We returned however in the evening to watch the sunset and it was spectacular. It was lovely and quiet, you... More

This beach has everything you want. White powdery sand, warm blue sea, wildlife, a pine forest backdrop a bar, café changing facilities & clean flush toilets all discretely hidden among the trees. Cheap sun loungers and no hawkers! Well worth a visit even just to see the black swans.

Lovely beach, shallow water so good for children.Umbrellas and beds reasonable priced but a bit cramped together. Doesn't really get busy until after 10am and the local bus stops right at the entrance.

Clear water, big clean beach, nice facilities, natural shadow under the trees, but a bit expensive regarding food and beverages you can buy there.
