Skiathos offer more than 50 beaches that surround the island.   All beaches have crystal clear water that is perfect for swimming and snorkeling.  The most popular beaches have one or more full service restaurants just a few meters from the beach. The smaller beaches have small wood-made bars that offer drinks, and most of the time, good food.

The northern part of the island features beaches that are accessible only by boat.  The most magnificent northern beach is the Lalaria beach with its characteristic rock arch over the water.  Most northern beaches are pebbled ranging from green to purple colors.  On windy days, the small local transport boats do not come to the northern beaches.

In the south part of the island, the beaches have fine golden sand and are typically calm, with gradual transition to deep water.
