The beach is charming, we stayed on the end near the accommodation, there was a rough little path opposite the end of the drive and we managed to scramble up and down.
At this end there is a little beach bar run by a young man and his mother. The food was great, nice chips, greek salad, rolls, cold amstel, what more could you want!!
There sunbeds were the standard 8 euros a pair including brolly. Superb snorkelling, I dont go out of my depth but I saw fish I have not seen before.
Troulos has no centre. It is one road that divides briefly but that is it. Handful of supermarkets and tavernas. We didnt bother going past the troulos bay hotel ...
to eat, nothing up the other end appealed to us. Read More
We ate in the hotel, fab and not expensive at all, food good basic greek stuff with first class waiter service.
We also ate in the 2 tavernas next to the hotel on the beach, the one nearest the hotel was the nicer service but food in both was good.
Prices are very reasonable in all and we have been to many greek islands in recent years so we can compare.
So, no real shops, no entertainment, no loud radio music little traffic, few people, some cats, no barking dogs.
Have to say it is so quiet I was glad of my little radio to break the silence (with ear phones of course).
Nice walk to the end of the road which is a nature reserve by the beach.
Billed as best beach in Greece, I think not, but very pleasant.
Skiathos town is a bit ordinary. There is nothing of a historical nature, but if you want jolly shops and very nice harbour side tavernas then its perfect.
The night life is all in town and have to say, the brits are well catered for.
Food in town is very highly priced and same stuff as in troulos.
Must mention the bus service, every 20 minutes in low season, to and fro, very good, gets busy but so do ours at home, and no school kids!!!(or graffiti)
Skiathos airport is not bad. Have been to worse. However, with a flight delay could get crowded. Take a bottle of water as well, there is a queue to check in that can be long.
Unijet rep was good, readily available but not in your face, nice lady, has been there 14 years.
All in all, a good time, we paid peanuts for this holiday although it wasnt a late booking, we had the best value ever.
We came home relaxed and happy, can't say more really!!
