Located on the southern end of Skiathos is the relatively quiet and laid-back resort of Troulos. The whole resort is based around an extensive bay which features one of the nicest beaches on the island - Troulos Beach. The sheltered beach area and amount of fun activities on the beach are one of the main reasons why Troulos is a popular resort with families. For something more exciting in the evenings, you might want to make the short trip to somewhere like Skiathos Town.

Troulos is at its busiest throughout the summer period - from spring until autumn - but never gets too busy at any time of year. Temperatures reach the high 20s on most days throughout this period making it a very reliable destination to visit in that sense. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months over the late autumn and winter periods but as the temperatures drop and the beach isn’t as attractive, we don’t really recommend a visit outside of the warm summer months.
The main attraction to this resort is definitely Troulos Beach. The beach features soft sands, plenty of places to relax, tavernas that line the shore and a variety of water sports to try out. There are also some more great beach options in the immediate vicinity of this place. In terms of nightlife, Troulos doesn’t offer anything along the lines of clubs or karaoke. It is much more suited to families that are content with having a pleasant evening meal and sipping a glass of wine in the warm Greek climate.
There is no real village centre to this place like most of the other resorts on the island and as a result, the accommodation options here tend to be dotted around a little bit. Small-scale hotels, apartments and studios are the most common choices here - all at reasonable prices. Just like with the hotels, the restaurants are spread across much of this resort, although the largest concentration of them can be found by the beach. Most places are family-run and provide amazing traditional Greek dishes for guests.
