Family of four had a wonderful day here. Children 9yrs and 10yrs loved the beach. Whilst we didn't hire a lounge we had a great time on the lovely sand and enjoyed this fabulous spot. The restaurant serves lovely food. Drinks really cold. Aspect....just perfect!

This beach was one of the best ones visited. Not too many people and had a great snack bar area. Went with family and met great people on the beach.

We walked through pine trees to find this beach, nice little beach bar there. Toilet is very basic, up a hill, it's a case of squat over a trough.

When in Skiathos, don't miss this beach. It isn't far from Koukounaries, but it isn't too easily accessible and requires some planning. You can drive through a sandy forested road. It's an easy 15-25 minute walk from the main road, but you need to ask how to find your way - good luck, it is WELL WORTH IT and my... More

Went here 2 times on our recent visit to skiathos. Turn right at Koukanares along the bumpy track. Water clean and clear and water shallow. For lunch we went to the first beach bar and the owner makes the most wonderful crispy chips with herbs on,delicious.

Maybe not always, but while we were traveling on the island, the southern beaches were quieter. Still, this is nice beach and who loves little waves and rocks - it's the beach for him There is also a nice sandy area and cafe Recommended!
