“So much rubbish!”

Ranked #22 of 82 things to do in Skiathos
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 August 2017

This was our 3rd visit to Skiathos and we always like to come to this beach in our Jimny Jeep. I must say that I was totally shocked to see so much rubbish floating in the sea, there were a few of us who were in and out of the water collecting bags and bags of plastic and debris from the sea.
I watched people stabbing their cigarettes out in the sand (there are ceramic ashtrays provided so no need for this at all!), walking off and leaving their water bottles behind for someone else to pick up. Come on everyone, if we all behave like this - this lovely beach will be a rubbish tip in a few years and no one will want to go there!
It is a nice beach - let's keep it that way please.

We stayed not too far and we're walking distance to this beach.
The sun beds were €4 each. Really pretty beach with sandy/light shingle.
The Aselinos Taverna was great for lunch. The kids ate calamari. My husband and I had a mixed salad with chicken. Was really nice but it came covered a mayo/ yogurt sauce.
There is a drinks service if you pay for a sunbed.
Two minus points - 1. Such a shame there was litter in the sea. The beach is so pretty and good for snorkelling. 2. Between 1pm and 3pm two tourist boats arrive as part of an island tour. Makes the beach quite packed. Would recommend if you are staying for lunch to order your food before the boats arrive.

We hired a small Suzuki Jimmy 4 x 4 and went to this beach over the mountain on very rough sand roads; though it is accessible using “main” roads.

Plenty of parking is available and an enormous Taverna. I asked "why so big?" and was told that “the boats come in”. No boats came on the day we visited and we had a great lunch of Little Fish (whitebait) and Calamari with fish; chips nice and crispy. Note: there were no umbrellas or loungers for hire at this beach when we visited . Take your own. Perhaps they are available later in the season, who knows?

Well worth a visit and much quieter than the main beaches.

We visited this beach for lunch when we did the round the island boat trip. Pleasant enough but not a place where I would make an effort to return to.
