Beaches you must visit
Little Banana Beach is a little more secluded and peaceful than its big sister, Big Banana Beach. The area initially attracted nudists and nature lovers, but over the years nudist numbers have diminished and are now scarce. However, keep in mind that Little Banana Beach is still considered a nudist beach, and bathers are often completely naked.
On the northeast side of the island, right at the base of a cliff, is one of the rarest beaches in the world, Lalaria.
The mountain is cut a few meters from where the wave pops, blocking any access to a road network, giving it the feel of a beach-fortress. The only way to visit the beach is by sea, either on a day trip or renting a boat if you do not have your own boat.
The beach is one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean and is also known as “Golden Sand”, as its sand is very light and looks like shining under the sun.
In Koukounaries you can do any water sports you like and find hotels, taverns, campsites and more.
The beach of Koukounaries is located in the southwestern part of Skiathos, offering a magnificent sunset that you should not miss. You can reach the beach by car or by bus.
