Tsougrias and Arkos islets
There are many islets around Skiathos, standing out for their untouched natural beauty and exceptional beaches. Arkos and Tsougrias are two of them.
The islet of Tsougrias has one of the most beautiful coasts in Sporades, on the north beach of its western side. A wide strip of white sand in the shape of a crescent separates the dense vegetation from the shallow crystal clear waters, making this place truly exotic. According to the locals, when the Beatles visited Skiathos and swam on the beach of Tsougrias, tried many times to buy property there, as they were enchanted by the tropical colors.
One of the most popular beaches of Skiathos. It got its name from its all white smooth pebbles. The locals call these pebbles “lalaria”. This particular beach is known for the white rock with the characteristic arch, called Trypia Petra, but also the cave of Fonissa. This cave is accessible only by boat.
The most popular beach of Skiathos is the beach of Koukounaries or Chrysi Ammos. Its natural beauty is unsurpassed. Pines embrace the entire beach and its golden sand, reaching all the way to the sea. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and has been awarded a blue flag!
