This is without a doubt the biggest attraction to the resort and is what many consider to be the best beach on the island. The nightlife here is modest but does feature live music and Greek dancing in certain places! It is a popular sunshine getaway for both families and couples.

The best time to visit this resort is definitely the summer period as you can’t do as many activities like sitting outside the cafes and relaxing on the beach when the winter period comes around. Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s throughout the summer months on a fairly consistent basis whilst the period between Autumn to Spring drops to the low teens. The summer period is also when most of the businesses dedicated to tourists are open and the resort is at its liveliest best.
The best thing to do in this resort is to spend as much time as possible on the breathtaking Koukounaries Beach. Although it can get busy at times, there is always enough space for you and your family and there is always something exciting going on. Sun loungers are available for hire, cafes and tavernas line the shoreline and a number of water sports are available for you to try out. However, away from the beach, there isn’t that much to do. For more exciting nightlife and more things to do and see, you will either want to drive or get one of the regular buses to Skiathos Town.
