Megali Ammos

Megali Ammos is within walking distance of the islands capital Skiathos Town and the name literally means "big beach" so it's easy to see why it's a popular place to stay. The beach is about a kilometre long, it's narrow and a mix of shingle and soft sand.

Skiathos Town

Vassilias

Vassilias is a relaxed resort tucked into the Skiathos hillside, it's part way between Skiathos Town and the Kalamaki peninsula. Vassilias is at bus stop 8 so you can catch the bus north to the capital or south to the other resorts and beaches.

Achladies

Achladies isn't really a village as such, it's more just a collection of hotels and apartments with a couple of beach side tavernas, a couple of supermarkets, a bar and a bakery. It's not far from Skiathos town which you can reach easily by water taxi or bus.

Lalaria

Lalaria is a shingle and pebble beach on the north of Skiathos, it has amazing rock formations and is only accessible by private boat or tour. There are absolutely no facilities so if you plan on visiting for the day you’ll need to bring your own food and drink.
