The best time to visit this resort is definitely the summer period as there isn’t as much to do when the temperatures start to cool down in the winter months. Temperatures usually reach the high 20s throughout the summer months whilst the period between autumn to spring drops to the low teens. Because Kolios is primarily a beach resort with plenty of nature to enjoy when the weather is good, we definitely recommend you skip the winter months and stick to the summer period.
The best thing to do in Kolios is to spend plenty of time in and around the gorgeous Kolios Beach. This narrow sandy beach rarely gets busy at all and is ideal for some rest and relaxation without getting disturbed. If you do like a bit more action on your beach days out, you can always take a short trip to any one of the beaches on the Kalamaki peninsula. Outside of Kolios, you should check out the neighbouring village of Agia Paraskevi which offers a bit more in terms of nightlife as well as the capital of Skiathos Town which is always buzzing with activity.
Kolios has a handful of hotels that visitors can choose from, most of which are fairly standard but still provide good quality stays. In terms of food and drink, there are a couple of small venues by Kolios Beach as well as a few shops and tavernas dotted around the resort.
