Who says blue and green should never be seen? The mix of pine forest green and oceanic blue speak eloquently to the contrary in the delightful Greek resort of Koukounaries. This beautiful location in Skiathos's south west is simply one of the most idyllic resorts you could possibly wish for with its 1 km arc of fine white sand descending into the dreamy tranquil waters of the Aegean that just beckon you to get in for a swim during the hot summer months. In fact, the beach is largely regarded as one of the best and most unspoilt in the Mediterranean.
Things to do
There are plenty of activities that will keep you engaged while staying in this Grecian dream location such as water skiing, banana boat rides, or maybe you just want to hire a paddle boat and take a gentle excursion where you can take a swim just where you fancy. For some land based excitement, pony trekking is a popular past time, too, along the area's picturesque mountain trails with their magnificent views. For a change of pace, Skiathos town
is only a 30 minute bus ride away from Koukounaries should you wish to experience its charming narrow streets replete with chic boutiques, cafes, bars, Greek tavernas and restaurants that cater to every taste and palate.
Not that you can ever wary of the sparkling Aegean that faces Koukouneries, but if you wanted a slight diversion from the sea, nearby is a picturesque lake and park which make a great alternative to the beach. Wildlife lovers will love spending time under the summer sun spotting the various birds that seek sanctuary amidst this peaceful location.
Entertainment & Eating Out
In Koukounaries traditional tavernas and other eating options are readily available right along the beach whether you're just feeling a little peckish in between bathing sessions or want to enjoy your evening meal and a glass of wine as the tranquil Aegean gently laps the shore close by. Plenty of tastes are catered for including authentic Greek cuisine and dishes from farther afield. In the evening there's a good selection of bars, too, including some right on the beach where you can enjoy a cocktail or a cold beer just a stone's throw away from the sea. What could be better than enjoying your favourite drink as the evening sun sets the sky aflame over the sea? Koukounaries tends to cater to those seeking a more low key and relaxed holiday than the party until the wee hours crowd, so if you're in the mood for nightlife that extends into the early hours, then Skiathos town is a convenient bus ride away.
