Beautiful but relatively isolated and small sandy beach about 16 km northwest of the town of Skiathos, on the northwest coast of the island inside an opening to the north cove. The Holy Monastery of Panagia Eikonistra (Kounistra) is nearby and is worthy of a visit.
Isolated rocky beach with very few sand just below the famous medieval castle, from where it took its name, located about 13 km north of the town of Skiathos, on the north coast of the island, inside an opening of the northeast cove. At the top of the beach there is a café, a restaurant and a tavern.
Beautiful sandy beach located 8 km southwest of the city of Skiathos on the south coast of the island roughly 3 kilometers west of Platanias, on the way to Koukounaries in front of the homonymous tourist resort settlement. Due to its location, the beach is sheltered from north winds.
The nice sandy beach of Maratha is situated at the southern coast of the island, well protected by the strong northern winds, at a distance of some 12 kilometers southwestern to the town of Skiathos, before arriving to Koukounaries. The beach has great facilities and sea sports.
The beach of Xanemos, a beach with large pebbles, is situated some 3,5 kilometers northeastern to the town of Skiathos, within a cove, at the eastern coast of the island. It owes its name to the fact that it is totally open to the strong northern winds blowing in the area with very cold waters.
Being the first diving school operating on Skiathos since 1990, we can guarantee the best dives around the island. Due to the new diving law in Greece there are no restrictions in regard to the dive sites anymore, so diving is possible everywhere.
