Which Greek Island Blog

Asfendiou

Asfendiou is a small picturesque village on the slopes of Mount Dikaion. It's probably not somewhere to base your holiday but worth a visit as the lush vegetation, natural springs and stone houses make this a beautiful area.

Markos

Markos beach is sandy and quite large with just a couple of rows of sun loungers, a snack hut and a taverna set back from the beach. There's no water sports but kids can play in the sand or shallows so it's great for families.

Exotic

Exotic beach, also known as Polemi Beach is a nudist or textile optional beach on the south coast, It's sandy, has a small snack kiosk, sheltered loungers and is well signposted off the main road that runs down the centre of the island making it very easy to find.

Lagada

Lagada is one of the south coast beaches and neighbours both Paradise beach and Markos beach. It’s often referred to as banana beach but it’s signposted as Lagada. There’s minimal facilities but you can walk to other beaches if needed.

Limnionas

Limnionas is a small sand beach with shingle in some areas, particularly around the entrance to the sea. Limnionas has a single row of sunbeds available to hire but no water sports or other entertainment. It's a bit out of the way so never gets too busy.

Magic

Magic beach is on the south coast and sits between Exotic beach and Sunny beach. As you’d expect it has the same slightly coarse sand with some scattered rocks. On the beach there are a couple of rows of sunbeds with umbrellas to rent but no water sports.

Sunny

Sunny beach is another one of the south coast beaches and sits in between Magic and Markos. Sunny beach is also known as Psilos Gremos. It's similar to the other beaches around it in that it has slightly coarse sand with the odd rocky area.

Kanapitsa

Kanapitsa is a beautiful peninsula towards the south of Skiahtos down at bus stop 12. It's around 6km from the capital Skiathos Town which is a short 10-15 minute drive. Kanapitsa has a quiet and relaxed feel with a few tavernas scattered about.

Kolios

Kolios is on the south of Skiathos island, just west of the Kalamaki peninsula and around 6.5km to the capital Skiathos Town. Kolios has a lovely beach, a couple of shops and tavernas as well as a handful of hotels so you’ve got everything you need.

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.
