What's Koukounaries like

Koukounaries is a small village close to the beach of the same name down in the south west corner of Skiathos. That makes it one of the furthest resorts from Skiathos Town but as the island is tiny it’s still only 12km away which would take just 20 minutes in the car.

You can get to and from Koukounaries on the bus that runs up and down the island, there are 4 bus stops for Koukounaries, 23-26

Koukounaries beach is widely considered to be one of the best on the island and it can get very busy because of this. The beach offers loungers, beach side tavernas and cafes as well as water sports, pedalo hire and plenty of soft golden sand.

The village of Koukounaries is much smaller than you’d expect being connected to such a popular beach, it’s basically a single main road with the amenities dotted along it. It does of course have a number of restaurants, supermarkets and all the other tourist facilities that you’d expect including a car hire outlet and a cash machine.

Those who choose to stay in Koukounaries will be the type that simply want a basic beach break with an evening meal and a carafe of wine rather than those who want to party the night away.

Koukounaries nightlife

Despite Koukounaries being one of the more popular tourist destinations in Skiathos it doesn’t have a huge amount of night life. There's a good selection of restaurants to get a meal and a few drinks, some of which have entertainment like live music or dancing but no real late night venues and definitely no clubs.

Those who want a bit more evening entertainment can always get the bus that runs regularly to Skiathos Town which is 13km away and offers a more lively evenings entertainment. 

What to do around Koukounaries

Koukounaries has a lake called Limni Strofilias between the main village centre and the beach, it's a lovely place for a wander round as it's a nature reserve and home to lots of wildlife.

There's a number of good beaches close to Koukounaries in case you fancy a change from the main beach, there's the ever popular big banana beach which has a lively atmosphere, the organised nudist beach called small banana beach and the quieter Xenia beach too.

If you're the kind of person that likes to visit other villages in the area then Troulos is closest, it's a short 5 minute drive to the south east and could even be walked in around 45 minutes. Troulos is a great village and well worth visiting either for a day trip or for a change of scenery in the evening.
