Banana Beach, Skiathos

3.6
#6 of 32 in Parks in Skiathos
Named for its bananalike shape, Banana Beach is a lively beach offering a variety of organized water activities. The sandy cove features lounge chairs so you can soak up the Greek sun and snack bars to refuel after a swim. The bars often play loud music and attract a young crowd. Don't confuse this beach with its nearby counterpart, Little Banana Beach, which is clothing-optional.

  • Take the bus to the far west of the island, Bus Stop 26. It's a bit of a trek up the hill, which can be very dusty when cars or bikes go by. Not helped by the building works that are going on at the m...  more »
  • From 4 to 12 December I was with my partner and my little girl of 20 months in Skiathos and visited Banana Beach! Lovely beach with crystal clear sea! Wishing with 10 euros you could grab an umbrella and 2 loungers but we didn't because we had our umbrella portable! The beach has a cute bar "Spartan" but divine where we sipped a great smoothie a typical drink of coffee and milk! In my opinion one of the most beautiful beaches of the island! Great for kids!!!

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.
