Koukounaries beach, Skiathos Island

The beach of Koukounaries, one of the most famous beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, is situated at the southwestern coast of the island, at a distance of 13 kilometers southwestern to the town of Skiathos. Many visitors and several maps refer to this beach as “Chryssi Akti” (the “golden coast” in Greek), after the fine, sparkling golden sand. But it is the impressive and interesting wood of umbrella pines, almost watered by the waves, that gave the name to this excellent beach (“koukounaria” is the Greek word for the umbrella pine).

When in the area don’t miss to go to the lagoon of Strofilia, an impressive biotope within a natural environment of breathtaking beauty.

For any problem you should address to the corresponding services of the town of Skiathos, some 13 kilometers northeastern to Koukounaries.

Access to the beach from the town of Skiathos (Chora) and from the airport is easy by public buses, with frequent service, by rented or private car and motorbikes, but also by taxi, as the distance is quite short. If you wish to arrive here by yacht, facilities for mooring are available at Koukounaries.
