What's Kolios like

Kolios is on the south of Skiathos island, just west of the Kalamaki peninsula and around 6.5km to the capital Skiathos Town.

Similar to Kanapitsa, this is a small and quiet resort. It has a couple of shops and tavernas as well as a handful of hotels so you’ve got everything you need for a relaxed stay.

If you’re thinking of going to Kolios then you are likely the type of person that wants to get away from the tourist traps and see a bit of the countryside, this is where Kolios excels as it doesn’t feel like a tourist resort at all, it’s really just a collection of businesses dotted along the main road and around a good beach.

Kolios nightlife

You don’t come to Kolios for the night life so don’t expect too much in the way of bars. As mentioned there’s a couple of restaurants and hotels and these will be the places where you spend the evenings as well.

The neighbouring village of Agia Paraskevi offers a bit more night life and the two villages kind of blend together so well within walking distance. Agia Paraskevi is a great option if you fancy something different on a couple of nights.

Skiathos town is a short bus ride away for those that would like a bit more in the way of evening entertainment, Kolios has two bus stops, 14 and 15 so you can grab the bus from which ever is closest to your hotel and head up to the capital where you’ll find no end of places to go.

What to do around Kolios

The best thing about Kolios is that you are right on Kolios beach which is a narrow sandy beach that is relatively quiet, you’re also close to some of the other popular beaches too and you can easily check out all the beaches around the Kalamaki peninsular if you wanted to.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your opinion, there’s not a lot else to do in the area, this is a tranquil place to relax for your holiday so if you want things to do you should probably look elsewhere.
