Koukounaries Beach, Koukounaries

#1 of 70 in Things to do in Skiathos
Sun-drenched Koukounaries Beach stretches along the southwestern coastline of Skiathos, an island packed with hotels, bars, and restaurants. Locally known as "Chrisi Ammos," approximately translated as "golden sand," this is one of the more cosmopolitan beaches in Greece, attracting water lovers and nightlife enthusiasts from distant corners of the world. A lush pine forest (one of the last remaining in the country) rings the beach and provides a cool natural shade. Spend your days cruising up and down the coastline on a rented boat, and your nights exploring the area's many ouzeri, traditional taverns serving Greece's famous anise-flavored aperitif.

Where to stay in Skiathos

Although most visitors to Skiathos flock to one of the island's beach resorts, staying outside the tourist-driven areas allows you to choose from less expensive rooms without compromising on comfort and proximity to the beach. Consider a self-catering apartment or small villa just outside Skiathos Town, or look for a budget-friendly room in one of the city's family-run inns. Another quiet and affordable alternative, the small settlements scattered along the island's coastline offer simple lodgings and plenty of privacy within driving distance of major urban attractions.
