Agios Fokas

Agios Fokas beach is found on the south east corner of Kos, just east of Thermes beach. There isn’t much in the area other than some upscale beach front hotels with spas and large pools. At the beach there's a trendy beach club, loungers and kids play area.

Agios Stefanos

Agios Stefanos Beach is mainly sand with a few pebbles scattered around. Right down the middle of the beach is the remains of the Basilica of Agios Stefanos which adds to the charm of the surroundings and is also a nice place to have a walk round.

Camel

Camel beach is found on the south coast of Kos and is made up of sand and some rocks, it has lovely scenery and crystal clear water making it ideal for snorkelling. It’s also not as popular as some of the other beaches in the area which makes a nice change.

Koukounaries

Koukounaries is probably the most popular beach in Skiathos, and with good reason, it’s a picture perfect beach with fine white sand, crystal clear water and pine trees lining the shore. Koukounaries beach has a good selection of water sports and tavernas.

Krifi Ammos

Krifi Ammos beach is found on the west coast, it's a relatively unknown and unspoiled beach, especially when compared to those on the south coast. The beach itself is just under 200m wide, there's rocks at both ends and the beach is backed by hills and trees.

Ligaries

Ligaries beach lies on the north coast of Skiathos. The beach is made up of mainly sand but with stones around the entrance to the sea. There’s a couple of rows of sun loungers around the middle of the beach but still plenty of room to simply lay out a towel.

Little Banana

Little banana beach is located on the west coast of Skiathos and is the islands only official nudist beach. Little banana is often referred to as small banana beach. It's well organised with a taverna, luxury sun loungers and umbrellas available to hire too.

Mandraki Elias

Mandraki Elias Beach is a decent sized sandy beach on the south west of Skiathos but on the northern coast, as with most of the beaches on the north coast it sometimes suffers with wind and choppy seas so perhaps not ideal for kids.

Mandraki Xerxes

Mandraki Xerxes beach which is also known as Xerxes beach, Xerxes Mandraki beach or simply Mandraki beach is located on the north coast of Skiathos. It's a sandy beach with a taverna for refreshments as well as sun loungers with thatched umbrellas available.

Maratha

Maratha beach is found in the south west of Skiathos, it's around 250m wide but really slim with golden sand. It’s lined with pine trees making it shady at some points in the day which some people will welcome and others will find frustrating.
