Having visited this beach four times since 2001 it’s such a shame it has now become so sanitised for the sterile elite.. e.g money grabbing and charmless. Don’t get me wrong Big Banana beach has to be one of the most beautiful on Skiathos... a...More

Gorgeous beach at end of Skiathos. Now dominated by sterile resort & beach bar that is completely overpriced & selling tasteless food. Expect to pay 3-4 times the price than you would at other places & the food isn't as described on the menu. When...More

First of all, the access to the beach was on a steep...More
Only on foot down a new bendy road obviously built for access to the new hotel. Barrier to prevent traffic but hotel guests are ferried up and down by buggy. Beach bar very expensive and lots of wasps.
