Skiathos island more info to all beachs: (http://www.travelinfo.gr/skiathos/beaches.htm)
The variety and extent of Skiathos coastline make it possible for bathers to enjoy an infinite number of different places to swim, all of them lapped by warm, crystal clear water.
Some of the most beautiful beaches on the island are : Koukounaries beach: This is most famous beach of Skiathos and one of the most widely - known beaches in Europe. It is known as "Chrisi Ammos - Golden Sand" since the sand there is extremely fine and shines under the summer sun. This beach offers the visitors its deep-blue, crystal-clear waters and a unique chance for a rest since the forest of Koukounaries reaches down to the sea.
Banana
This bay was originally called Krassa, but later it was named Banana after the nudist beach which used to be there. The pine trees here complete the beautiful landscape in a unique way and the sea shines brilliantly under the blazing sun.
Agia Eleni
The bay of Agia Eleni is named after the little country church found there and is dedicated to Saint Helen, opening its arms to the setting of the sun and the west. The sun shines until very late so if you swim there, you will enjoy even its last rays. The crystal - clear bluish waters are inviting and the pine-trees reaching the sea will offer you their refeshing shade under their dense leafage.
Mandraki.
In this area there are three magnificent bays: the port of Xerxes, the bay Elia and Angistros. The landscape here changes as we move to the north and it becomes more wild and more impressive. All these three bays are magnificent and impressive since you can see no land
Asselinos
It is a bay which opens up to the north and from which no land can be seen. Although it is considered a sandy beach, it does not look like the calm beaches of southern Skiathos. Here the sand is thicker, there are many pebbles and the waters are quite deep and crystal clear
Kechria
The bay of Kechria and the adjacent bay of Lygaries are situated in the north of the island. The trip there is worthwhile even though a lot of it is on dirt road. You can get there by boat as well.
