Best beach to go in July that is easy to get to

We go mid July to Skiathos & after reading about all the different beaches could anyone recommend one that will be easy to get to & not be overly busy as don’t want to have to be on the beach for 9 to get sunbeds we were hoping to go to the beach about 11 & also eat mid afternoon in a taverna on the beach. Maybe be a big ask in July?

You will need the luck of the Irish for that ...

July is busy, leaning towards very busy, the island is expecting 10% more visitors this year.

Easiest beaches to access are Koukounaries, & Troulos, probably having the best options to eat at lunchtime.

The trouble is everyone else has the same idea, but will be on the beach early ...

If you are staying in town, I would recommend Kanapitsa or Tsougria. Kanapitsa because you can go by bus in the morning and head back by boat in the evening. Tsougria never gets that crowded and you go by boat from the harbour.

The bus is a problem going back to town In the early evening. On the other hand you could stay at the beach late and go to a restaurant near the beach.

Why not private charter a sail yacht from the new port? Some do all inclusive drinks/lunch in your very own private floating taverna without having to wear a wristband to ruin a tan, They will visit a beach only accessible by sea for sure, you will get to see a couple of small uninhabited islands including the best beaches of Skopelos, most have snorkelling equipment, some have drone cams, some have underwater cams, your guaranteed a private sunbathe spot, even if it costs 500/600€ it’s divided by 9 persons so with drinks and food not a bad deal? You cannot beat a boat tan! Check the reviews in “things to do section” ...

Being going to Skiathos since 1984! Last year went mid July and felt suffocated by overcrowded beaches. Finally took desperate alpinist walk to Hidden Beach for some peace and quiet. Thought it was difficult to go down there but when I saw owner of kantina running up and down carrying all day's stuff on his shoulder I found walk easier

Your ok then Aghia Paraskevi Beach is lovely & right on your doorstep, Kolios next to it bus stop 15 is nice also. Flat walk to the beach, Kolios is down a slight hill but nothing major. As for available beds I would try and get there for 10/1030. We stay in town and managed to get beds. Kolios has a beach Taverna & Paraskevi has more a snack/bar but decent choices. Enjoy your stay.

All beaches are accessible, but each year a different beach is flavour of the month with Greek youngsters.

Megali ammos or Kanapitsa always a good
