    Comments This beach is situated at the west part of skiathos facing the mainland , and it has a northern orientation . In order to get there , you can go on foot (about 45min of walking from koukounaries beach), or you can go by motorcycle or even car , although the road is in poor condition, which is a good thing, because this beach never gets crowded. It is a long sandy beach with soft sand , sandy sea floor , magnificent surroundings with hills full of pine tree forests, and a restaurant-bar..made of kalami(similar to bamboo tree) . It's the best beach for those who seek a silent peaceful environment away from the crowds of koukounaries and banana beach.

    Comments Although we went in July the beach was fairly quiet - I suppose people were put off by the walk. Several boats arrived during the day and dumped their cargo of passengers who stayed for a few hours, had lunch then departed. Before and after these visits the beach was quiet. Lots of couples and families (clothed and nude). We sunbathed and swam nude each time we visited and it was possible to walk around naked quite freely although you had to don shorts for the cantinia / beach bar. Very relaxing and enjoyable.
