Koukounaries Beach is the last stop on the Bus from Skiathos Town. Most visitors to the island would agree that it is one of the best beaches on the island. It is picturesque, well organised and has fantastic beach side amenities.
The beach is sand and has beds that can be rented (8 Euros for two with an umbrella). The water, as it is all over the island, is crystal clear and warm. The beach has many tavernas and as well as a snack shop. To the back of the beach, you can find natural shade from the pine trees.
As Koukounaries is rated so highly, it does get very busy. A high seed water taxi regularly arrives from Skiathos Town. For this reason I would advise that you get to the beach early to make sure you get the spot you want.
Koukounaries has various water-sports for thrill seekers. Water sports include Water-skiing, power boating, Jet-Skiing and diving
Over the last few years Koukounaries has started to become a little more like Big Banana.Some of the bars along the front now play music fairly loudly. However, the beach is about 1km long so you will find a quieter spot away from the dance music if that is what you are after.
Koukounaries is a fantastic beach with something for everyone. I highly recommend giving it a chance.
