Koukounaries

4.1
Indisputably one of the top tourist attractions on Skiathos, the tiny village of Koukounaries remains best known for its sandy beach, which curves along the island's southwestern coastline. Be sure to add the beach to your itinerary if you want a good combination of scenic landscapes and modern facilities, but remember that this part of the coast does get extremely crowded at the height of tourist season. If you prefer activities away from the busy seaside, use Koukounaries as your base for exploring the surrounding countryside, known for its mountainous pine forests. Just behind the beach you can also visit a pristine lake, which serves as a protected biotope sheltering several species of rare birds. Customize your holiday with our Greece itinerary builder website to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Koukounaries

Most visitors to Koukounaries come for its famous beach, which makes hotel rooms near the water expensive and hard to come by at the height of the season. Escape the crowds by renting one of the area's self-catering apartments, which offer privacy and access to private swimming pools within walking distance of popular bars and restaurants. You can also visit Koukounaries from Skiathos Town, offering a greater variety of affordable guesthouses and budget hotels just a short drive away.
