Exploring Ithaca Sailing Holidays area Add Skinos Beach to favorites Add Skinos Beach to your Points of Interest

Skinos beach is a long, narrow and extremely calm beach, easily accessed within 2km from Vathy, the capital of Ithaca. The beach itself is strewn with shiny pebbles, both small and large. Skinos is reachable only by car. The road leading to the beach is incomplete at its last stretch, so careful driving is a priority. The sea at Skinos beach has crystal waters and an emerald green tinge to it. The water and the rocky shoreline are superb for snorkeling activities. The landscape at Skinos is spectacular with cypresses bordering the beach. The beach is least known for its commercial culture, having no tourist amenities. It is advisable to carry the basic supplies of food and drinks when coming to this beach. This lack of facilities preserves the natural beauty and scenic charm of the beach. Trees offer plenty of shade during the day and the water is perfect for swimming. Being a bit isolated, Skinos remains clean most of the times, while any litter gets washed by the seashore. The backdrop of Skinos beach is dotted with some exclusive villas overlooking the splendid environment.
