Natural attractions in Skiathos island

Castro fortress built during Ottoman rule also can be seen in the northern part of the island of Skiathos. In summer it is very hot and the lack of trees made the heat unbearable.

The largest beach is Koukounaries. It is well settled beach with all amenities for tourists - lounges, umbrellas, and has close coniferous forest shade. To Koukounaries Beach is a small beach Banana.

I think it is more attractive and visited beach for its combination of rock, sand and crystal clear water. In recent years, it is quite crowded. Another beach that is not to be missed especially for adventurers is a beach Mega Gialos.

This place is covered with pebbles and the water is clear with rocky bottom suitable for diving. If you have diving equipment we recommend Mega Gialos. Aselinos beach is covered with coarse sand, and behind him dry river with cattails.

Ksanemos beach is right on the edge of the runway at the airport, making it very noisy. Most tourists avoid it because of frequent departure. In the northern part of the island of Skiathos is beach Lalaria.

Because of the steep inaccessible coast are advised to visit it by boat or small boat. However much advertised by the local population and guess why? Restaurants and taverns can you recommend Taverna Anatoli and taverna asprolithos. They have excellent food at good prices.

The staff is high, the atmosphere is relaxed and romantic. A typical Greek restaurant Scuna will not disappoint because it is right next to the beach. The cuisine is Mediterranean with many Greek specialties. The restaurant has a terrace with evening splendid sea views.
