Lalaria Beach, Skiathos

4.2
#4 of 70 in Things to do in Skiathos
Accessible by boat only, Lalaria Beach represents a hidden gem on the northeastern tip of Skiathos. The pebbly beach remains best-known for its towering cliffs, sculpted by strong winds and waves. Creating a kind of natural gate, the cliffs draw adventurous water lovers who come here to dive off the highest rocks. If you prefer less daring activities, you can opt to relax on the pebbles or explore the island's sun-kissed coastline by boat tour. The beach offers few modern amenities, so bring your own towels, snacks, and drinking water.

    To get there I purchased a ticket at the port in the morning, but the boatman I warned that there are strong winds from the North, would do a tour on the southern side of the island and I would bring in Lalaria. A real scammer. I came back a few days later, with another boat: the place is wonderful. Before you buy your ticket, always check that there is no strong wind from the North (often).

    This is the best beach in Skiathos. it is only accessible by boat, though, so don't miss a day trip around the island to get a chance to see the Aegean Sea in all its splendour.  more »

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.
