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.

Troulos

Troulos is a laid-back and relatively quiet resort on the southern end of Skiathos. It’s based around an impressive bay and has a number of quality beaches to choose from. There's no village centre but there are a few shops, restaurants and bars in the area.

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.

Kalamaki

Kalamaki is located at the eastern end of the bay of Laganas on the south east coast. It's a huge sandy bay that's a haven for the endangered Logerhead turtles that nest here. Kalamaki isn't one of the most popular resorts but still boasts plenty of accommodation.

Keri

There’s actually two sections to Keri village, the main tourist area, known as Limni Keri that’s built around the beach and harbour with the majority of the hotels, apartments and tavernas and the more traditional village up in the hills with fantastic views.

Laganas

As the largest and liveliest resort on Zakynthos, Laganas is practically without competition. This huge development on the southwest coast is highly popular with young adults looking to party and is the only true 18-30 style resort on the island.

Tsilivi

Tsilivi, also known as Planos is one of the most developed and popular resorts in Zakynthos.It’s extremely popular with tourists as it has everything you need including a wide range of hotels, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, car hire shops, ATMs and more.

Vasilikos

Vasilikos is a region at the tip of the Vasilikos peninsular. There’s no real village centre, it’s more a collection of houses and hotels in amongst the vegetation, rolling hills and olive groves. It’s not a developed tourist resort which some will love.

Agios Sostis

Agios Sostis is a peaceful resort on the south east coast, it's an attractive village that's spread around the port and beach with a good selection of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops, most of which are down by the beach but some are in land too.
