Megalos Aselinos beach is on the Northern side of Skiathos
island. The beach is vast and sandy with sun loungers and a large taverna serving food, drinks and snacks all day. Megalos Aselinos is sometimes referred to as Big Aselinos or simply Aselinos as there’s also a smaller Aselinos just round the corner. To find out more go to our Mikros Aselinos beach
Megalos Aselinos beach is a popular stop off for some of the boat trips that go round the island so expect it to be busy between 13.00 and 15.00 when the boats arrive and people flood to the restaurant for lunch. The rest of the time Megalos Aselinos is fairly quite.
Depending on which way the wind is coming from the sea can get quite choppy at Megalos Aselinos so it’s perhaps not ideal for children on these days, there are no water sports to keep youngsters entertained either.
Megalos Aselinos beach is easy to get to if arriving by car and there is plenty of parking available. If you fancy the hour long walk then you can get the bus to stop 18 and then head north. Just remember your comfy shoes and bottle of water.
As with many of the northern beaches on Skiathos, Megalos Aselinos is sometimes used by naturists, they tend to stick to the right hand side of the beach as you look out to sea.
