    Beach bars and sport clubs
    Koukounaries is one of the most famous beaches on Skiathos. Surrounded by a lot of greenery, it looks great from above. The water is very clean and there are some beach bars and sport clubs around. Kounanaries gets very busy and lively in summer. If you are an active type, you will love it. If you are looking for some quiet, better go in May or September, when the peak season is off but the weather is still good. In a small cove close to Koukounaries, I saw some naturists. I don't know though if it is an official naturist beach.
