In my previous post about Skiathos I talked about what I liked in Skiathos and why I think it is one of the best Greek islands. I mentioned that it has around 65 beaches, considered to be one of the best in the whole Greece. All of them surrounded with pine trees, which gives them a nice surrounding and some natural shades. And all of that gave me the incentive to go and visit this beautiful island this summer. I didn’t have the chance to see so many beaches, as there are too many good ones, but I am sure that I will go there once again and explore its beaches in more depth.
City bus I mentioned takes you to all the important beaches on the south of the island. You just need to be careful not to miss the stop, as the bus conductor or driver sometimes neglect to mention what is the next stop. And also fair to mention is that it can be pretty crowded in the peak times, so there is a battle to enter the bus and grab a seat. So after a whole day on the sun when you feel exhausted from the beach, this can be tiring to catch a seat in a bus. Other solutions are to rent a bike, squad or car and be more flexible.
In this post I will focus on my top Skiathos beaches, actually the two beaches I loved while being there and some small info on the others which are also worth to see while in Skiathos. If you would rent a set of sun-umbrella with two sunbeds > it is 8 euros on all of the beaches. Hard to miss paying as there is always someone coming to collect money for. And drinks are not included, so expect to go to the beach bars and get yourselves coffees or drinks. Whenever in Greece, I always like to drink cold Freddo Cappuccino which is about 3-4 euros in general, but worth it, believe me 🙂 Read more
