My wife and I have holidayed on the island of Skiathos, we stayed in Koukounaries.
The beach at this resort is absolutely fantastic. It is called ‘Chrisi Ammos’ or ‘golden sand’, because of the way it glistens in the sunlight.
Skiathos is quite a small island, and the resort is on the South West tip of the island, yet only 13 kilometers from Skiathos town, the capital.
I loved this beach because it was clean, and the sea was blue and just right for swimming.
When it was cool enough after sunbathing and swimming, we used to go for walks through the pine and olive tree groves that lined the edge of the beach.
The beach had all the usual water sport facilities, such as Jet Ski’s, and bars that lined the beach also.
Skiathos does not attract ‘rowdy’ people; it is aimed at families and couples, and was just a nice relaxing holiday destination, which I liked a lot. [more ]
