Megalos Aselinos is one of the best if not the best beach on the island. Spacious enough with a beautiful, fine sand, not overcrowded.The problem in August, as in Skiathos in general, is that lack of sun-beds and shade.

Easily accessible by car. Better roads than trying to get to Kechria or Ligaries. Sandy with shallow waters. Occasionally windy but that makes it more fun with waves but can also be very calm. It's very quiet and relaxed with no heaving hoards or banging...More

You need a car to reach this beach, but worth visiting. We visited end of May/beginning of June and it was so peaceful. Quiet, even when the boat trip visits, as most people visit the beach cafe.

We have now visited this beach a few times and always enjoy the spacious taverna, the boardwalk and the easy, plentiful parking. We have never been when it is busy but apparently there are occasional boat trips that call in.

One of our favourites. On the North side so catches cooling breezes. Easily accessible via the asphalt road from Troulos. Gritty sand but it brushes off easily. Long expanse to walk along. Beach shelves quite steeply so deep water near the shore. Sea is blue/clear...More
