Although this is the most famous beach, it was the least interesting to me. There is too much crowd and noise on the beach. My recommendation is the beaches that are not along the way.

Stunning beach, lovely beach bars with good food and friendly staff. Short walk from hotel but relatively flat terrain.

This beach is not as busy as one of the others but still there is a toilet and sunbeams an umbrellas for shade. It cost 8euros for two sunbeams and one umbrella for the whole day. Just paradise for swimmers, snorkelers and everyone in-between.

Lovely beach, accessible by bus to stop 26, or by water taxi from the harbour in Skiathos Town. Lots of comfy sunbeds and a couple of places to eat and drink with toilets and showers.

Probably was a lovely beach but looked just like all the others, sun bed after sun bed. However it was a lovely place to sunbathe, quiet and the sea had a bed of sand, not rocks. Nice touch with the waiter/waitress service on sun beds,...More

sun loungers almost on every inch of sand, noisy and too busy, food and drink expensive. If you want to relax avoid this beach

We travelled to Koukounaries for a day trip. We arrived, discovered there was nothing there but the beach and a few beach bars, had a drink...and left. This place is ideal for completely chilling on the sand...nothing else though!

Stunning setting with crystal clear waters on white sands backing on to a pine forest. Padded loungers 7 euros for 2 with waiter service. A few snack bars, showers, toilets and changing huts. Bliss!

Lovely popular beach. Sea is so clear and warm. Sunbeds 4 euros each a day. Water sports are on the beach. Can get crowded when boats drop tourists off

Not sure about May but we went in October & some of the bars were open & you could still use the sun beds so I’d expect you’ll be able to in May
