Xanemos

Xanemos beach is around 300m long and really deep so even with 3 rows of sun loungers it doesn’t feel busy or crowded. Xanemos is a great option if you want to get away from the mass crowds and it’s just a short walk from Skiathos Town.

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.

Xenia

Xenia beach in Skiathos also known as Ampelakia beach is a long sandy beach just west of Koukounaries. It's surrounded by pine trees which offer some much needed shade. Children will enjoy Ampelakia as it has soft sand that’s great for building sand castles.

Krifi Ammos

Krifi Ammos beach is on the west coast, it's a relatively unknown and unspoiled beach, especially when compared to 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 it's 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

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, 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.

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.

Megali Ammos

Megali Ammos is a narrow beach just outside Skiathos Town at bus stop 4. It's easily walk-able from the Town and for that reason it can get very busy in the high season. There are tavernas and water sports plus crystal clear water and soft golden sand.
