Skiathos' number-one beach
Megali Ammos will take you to Skiathos’ east coast, where you’ll find some of the island’s best beaches. It’s a 15-minute walk, or 5-minute drive, from Skiathos Town, giving you a quiet and tranquil retreat within easy reach of some of the best restaurants, bars, and shops in Skiathos. The town is set on a sweeping golden bay and has the iconic crystal clear waters of the Greek islands, as well as whitewashed buildings with terracotta roofs and pretty tavernas.
Spend your days soaking up the warm sunshine on the beach, enjoying the smell of the pine forests surrounding the town and taking a cooling dip in the blue waters. There are tavernas and restaurants where you can choose from refreshments and snacks, as well as renting sunbeds. When it comes to watersports the Blue Flag beach offers more sedate options, including sailing, kayaking, and pedalo rides
Holidays in Megali Ammos are all about the opportunities to relax. It’s a small, relaxed town set right on the coast and within easy reach of the capital. Lovers of the island’s traditional style will find pretty architecture to admire, while explorers can hike or mountain bike in the surrounding forests. Head into Skiathos Town for theatres, museums, fine dining, and some excellent bars, or simply spend your days in Megali Ammos unwinding by the pool, on the beach or at the spa.

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).
