I feel so sad we havent visited this beach before it was taken by Russian money makers. But if you ignore the beach bar and close your eyes you can still smell the pines and enjoy the beauty of this beach and its clear see.

The banana beach is no longer exist. All the area is private, and that is really sad. It was a beach for nudebathing.

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

As with previous reviews, we used to go to Banana beach every year (10 years), but now, this year it’s barriered off so you can’t even drive a scooter to it. The beach has apparently been taken over by a Russian cartel who want it...More

Banana Beach was easy to access. Free bus to and from the beach from the main road was perfect for those who didn't want to walk. The beach is an organized beach has sand. Lounge chairs and drinks very reasonable as well.

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.

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.
