Koukounaries Beach, Koukounaries
(3.6/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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 inĀ 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. Put Koukounaries Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Skiathos vacation generator.

  • We're not great ones for sitting around on the beach, but if we were, this would take some beating. A long soft sanded beach, warm sunshine and not too crowded. 
  • Simply beautiful... that's all! The nicest beach I've ever been on in Greece and would return to Skiathos for this place alone. If you're in Skiathos you simply have to spend a day here, perfect! Pure...  more »
