Kolios is on the south road which leads all the way across the island of Skiathos. Kolios has a very small, pretty bay and the larger beaches of Vromolimnos & Platanias either side of it. The beach at Kolios is edged by pine woods that can act as perfect shade from the sun if you get too hot.
Kolios has two good Tavernas on the beach as well as water sports at high season and sunbeds available. In the centre of Kolios you will find a few hotels, tavernas and mini markets. The mini markets will stock all the essentials you need as well as fresh bread every day. A lot of people take the 10 minute walk up to Platanias as there a few more choices of taverna there.
Kolios sits on the main bus route through the south of the island. You can get the bus to Koukounaries, Skiathos town and anywhere in between. The bus service a very regular. In high season they can be as frequent as every 10 minutes. The buses on Skiathos, like all Greek islands, can get very busy so try to travel early to get a seat. However, if you dont manage to get a seat the stand wont be long as Skiathos is just a dot of an island so bus journeys are never long.
Kolios is a a great location for sun worshippers who appreciate a good beach. However, with Skiathos being so small and easy to get around it can serve as a good base of operations if you are planning to explore the island. You can find a selection of the accommodation on offer here.
