One of the nicest, if not the nicest beach on the island, next door to the very popular but very crowded Koukounaria beach, skip the crowds and chill on Banana beach with absolutely fantastic music that's played from the tervana, or take a swim in...More

This is the gay naturist beach on Skiathos. It’s really nice with coves that are within swimming distance.

It's a long hike at the moment through building developments. The beach appears to be smaller than 30 years ago. Don't think it is worth the hike.

Beautiful beach but being spoiled by building of numerous apartments. Rumours are that there will be 200, this will totally change this once beautiful area.

Fantastic, beautiful beach, one of the best beaches I have visited. Great taverna for lunch. If u go to Skiathos Banana beach should be on your list of places to visit.

This is a very busy beach and is at the end of the bus route. It gets even busier with the frequent boats dropping of people and regular times. Get there early especially in high season

The beach is sandy with plenty of sunbeds, full day sun and clear water. A lot of swimming and plauing space in the water. Only snack food and pretty expensive drinks. There is no real parking (because of construction site), you must park up the...More

Sorry John 1) for the late reply 2) for not knowing the answer. I walked the mile or so to this beach and didn't use the bus. I too was there in September.
