Unwind in a quiet cove

If you’re looking for rest, relaxation, and one of the most beautiful beaches in Skiathos, then Kolios is the pick for you. You won’t find any rowdy bars or nightclubs here, just a handful of traditional tavernas, a scattering of charming hotels, and a few shops for essentials. 

The narrow sandy beach, on the southern coast of Skiathos, curves around calm, crystal-blue waters perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Rustic parasols and sunbeds are dotted along the shore. Find your favourite spot and park yourself there for the day – or week – with a stack of books and top ups from the beachside bars.

Above the beach is a dense forested headland and acres of rugged countryside – if too much R&R has left you restless, it’s ideal hiking territory. Renting a boat, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard to explore other coves and swimming spots across the island is a must-do, too.
