What will you find in Koukounaries?
Koukounaries is the most famous beach on Skiathos. The area is well set up for tourist with many bars, taverna and restaurants. It has beds on umbrellas for rent you just just want to watch the world pass you by.
However, if you are feeling a little devilish then you can make good use of the Water Sports or Scuba diving centre.
On the beach you will find amenities such as changing rooms, showers and a life guard to make you day at the beach safe and comfortable
If you want a day away from the beach then why not visit Strofilia Lake. This natural beauty spot is home to many migratory birds and offers a great natural trail to walk if you have itchy feet. However, in high season beware of the mosquitos who also like the lake.
How to get to Skiathos Town
Koukounaries is the last stop on the South bus route. But don’t let that put you off. The bus to Skiathos town only takes around 30 minutes and is pretty frequent. However, if this is too long then go down to the beach and get the fast Taxi Boat which will have you in Skiathos Town in around 10 minutes.
