Roads being re-built and some blocked off, so both hard to find and reach. High quality sunbeds, but very expensive and very heavy, so hard to move. Snack bar is extremely limited and food not great. Little Banana may be better, but is nudist.

The arduous trek to little banana beach is worth the effort as it is probably the best beach on Skiathos. Very sadly there is a lot of development going on, a new hotel and villas which will ruin this area of natural beauty. We heard...More

One of the nicest, if not the nicest beach on the island, next door to the very popular but very crowded Koukounaria beach, skip the crowds and chill on Banana beach with absolutely fantastic music that's played from the tervana, or take a swim in...More

Take the bus to the far west of the island, Bus Stop 26. It's a bit of a trek up the hill, which can be very dusty when cars or bikes go by. Not helped by the building works that are going on at the...More

This is the gay naturist beach on Skiathos. It’s really nice with coves that are within swimming distance.

It's a long hike at the moment through building developments. The beach appears to be smaller than 30 years ago. Don't think it is worth the hike.

Beautiful beach but being spoiled by building of numerous apartments. Rumours are that there will be 200, this will totally change this once beautiful area.

Fantastic, beautiful beach, one of the best beaches I have visited. Great taverna for lunch. If u go to Skiathos Banana beach should be on your list of places to visit.

Sorry John 1) for the late reply 2) for not knowing the answer. I walked the mile or so to this beach and didn't use the bus. I too was there in September.
