Luxury Vasilias Beach Holidays

One of the best beaches on Skiathos

Vasilias Beach

The little resort of Vasilias nestles on the peaceful outskirts of island capital Skiathos Town. It's a picture of whitewashed houses and traditional tavernas, set against the backdrop of pine-covered hills.

Translating as 'the king's beach', Vasilias is hands-down one of Skiathos' most scenic stretches of sand. It's the perfect spot for families, with plenty of space to pull up a lounger and spend the day paddling. There are some good watersports for active types, including waterskiing and windsurfing, and boat rental options provide the best way to see more of Skiathos.

In the evenings, you're a 10-minute bus or taxi ride from Skiathos Town, with its appealing mix of tavernas, family-friendly restaurants and lively bars.

Insider tips from our well travelled team

Natasha Starkin

Skiathos Town sparks into life in the evenings when its restaurants, tavernas and craft shops open up for trade. For something really special, head for the old quarter, where you can get a taste of traditional island life.
