A distinctly better class of beachside tavern. Wide choice of snacks and full dishes. Daily local special. Friendly service and reasonably priced.

Nice chill out spot ,on the beach.Food-drinks-face all day long. Fresh salads, greek flavors,many refreshments. Swell is a naval term (commonly “mute wave”, “swollen sea” or “restia”) and is the type of wave that is not caused by the weather conditions at the time it is observed but is generated by distant weather systems where wind blows for a duration of time in the past or in another area. This is a word we would hear often in the tales of our father, who was a sailor at his youth. This is the name my brother Dimitris thought when we decided to open a beach bar in 1993, so that we can have a good time during the summer season with the guests of our hotel and the people sunbathing on the beach. Eventually during the course of time “Swell” beach bar became a beloved lodge and habit for many of the visitors of Skiathos who are now our friends.
