Luxury Megali Ammos Holidays

Skiathos' number-one beach

Megali Ammos

This little village on Skiathos’ south coast boasts one of the best spots on the island. Just a 20-minute stroll from cosmopolitan Skiathos Town, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a little peace and quiet while still being close to the thick of things.

Megali Ammos is home to one of Skiathos’ top beaches – the nearest one to the capital. Narrow but amazingly long, this sand-and-shingle number is protected from the north winds by headlands that keep things calm, warm and shallow. It’s a well-equipped beach, with a good string of waterfront cafes and tavernas to stop in for lunch. Watersports are popular here – try water-skiing or snorkelling in a quiet spot.

Away from the beach, Megali Ammos has a small-town Greek feel complete with narrow alleyways hiding local tavernas and markets. If you fancy some excitement, Skiathos Town’s sights and sounds are an easy walk away. 

Our recommendations

Insider tips from our well travelled team

Samantha Grist

Skiathos Town is lovely, and just a short walk from Megali Ammos. It’s still very traditional in style, with a lively vibe and a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants. From the port, you can take a boat trip to some of the surrounding islands like Skopelos and Alonissos (which I’d highly recommend).

In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers.
