Nudist beaches in skiathos-Little Banana (Skiathos) - All You Need to Know BEFORE You Go (with Photos) - TripAdvisor

It is actually easier to get to this beach than before cos most of it is a road and if the little I agree with the above reviews: music is very hard and loud although I like this kind of dark We recently spent a week in Skiathos and just had to try out this beach. As the name suggests it is quite small but if you get there early, before lunchtime, you should be able to get some sun beds, having said that, it was late season so maybe different in peak season. As 1st time visitors to a nude beach we felt very comfortable as there was a good mix of age groups with no one judging.

Nudist beaches in skiathos beach faces the east, so the sun is going behind the cliff in the early evening. Still a fabulous beach and all being well we will be back next year for our We could go for over an hour without seeing anyone. It was almost completely naturist, many people using the sunloungers and umbrellas, and there was a really friendly atmosphere there. George brought some of the old style blue beds down which were mainly taken by people and used on the area between the taverna and the rocks. Naturists have plenty of space away from the Taverna and the local Greek visitors. Little Banana.

My girlfriend and I are visiting Skiathos in early July, and would love to find some quiet, romantic coves and beaches away from the crowds where we may feel comfortable taking our clothes off , but feel a little put off the banana beach nudist idea as it sounds so noisy and with lots of visiting boats pointing and looking etc, We have heard bad reports like this.

We would not realy consider ourselfves 'nudists' as such, but would be nice to be able to swim and sunbathe like this on a quiet beach somewhere.

Any ideas or have we gone to the wrong island? Have the banana beaches been totally ruined? Hidden Beach. See directions on Captain Barefoot's site. Take the boat trip to Tsougria island, and wander off the main beach and find somewhere quiet. Thanks for your replies guys! I was beginning to think we wouldnt find anywhere, the Island sounds promising, look forward to discovering it!

Go to Elias Elias Mandraki beautiful paradise, as it is signposted, so it is. Since my earlier reply I have been to Skiathos for a week. When I looked at Hidden Beach twice there were no nude people there, so nudism wasn't possible.

There were more people there than the last time I went. Both Mandraki and Elias beaches have fairly quiet nudist ends both ends at Elias , but you won't be alone.

At Mandraki there is a small separated bit of beach beyond the main beach - get there first and you'll have it to yourself. At Ambelaki beyond Koukounaries - I think it is called Mini Kouk by some people , walk over the rocks at the far end and there is a small beach that, again, you might have to yourselves if you get there first.

Between Small Banana and Aghia Eleni there are some small 2 person beaches that you can swim or get a boat to. I think you might be able to get there by climbing over the rocks from Aghia Eleni.

This subject has raised quite a few different opinions on another forum, it seems that nudism strictly speaking is illegal and the only designated beach is Little Banana. The local people ask you to respect this unless of course you have the beach to yourself. Tsougria island sounds like the best course or you could always hire a small motor boat and find some of the smaller coves along the coastline.

Thanks Greecemad, I appreciate your recent 'live' update, very helpful, and thanks Mrs Wicker for your advice also. We will endevour to find some quiet corner on our own if possible, and will very much heed your advice on respecting the wishes of the localswhere others are sharing the beaches. I hope you have a wonderful time and find some secluded spots to enjoy the sun and swim in the beautiful Aegean however you wish to, I'm sure you will. I would definitely recommend a boat trip to Tsougris which has 3 beachs sll stunning.

The main beach is not nude but is rally beautiful and what the hell, next time we go, I will just go nude anyway. The rule is get there early, head for the far end of the beach and strip of, that way you have set a precedent and other like minded people often follow suit. Enjoy your trip.

Great 1st time nude beach - Review of Little Banana, Skiathos, Greece - TripAdvisor

Jan and I chose Skiathos for our honeymoon for one good reason. For an island that boasts between sixty and seventy beaches around it's forty four kilometres of coastline we felt that there was a very good chance that we would find some secluded 'unofficial' naturist beaches. Friends told us we were mad to go to Skiathos then because it would be so crowded but we were determined to find quiet beaches.

Having studied brochures in some detail we finally decided to stay in an area called Koukounaries in the south west of the island. This was partly because there is the well known 'Banana Beach' in the area which is used greatly by naturists but also because we saw a lovely little one bedroomed chalet advertised which was perfect for us.

It was the furthest up the hillside overlooking Koukounaries and totally secluded. We can't actually remember the name of the chalet but if you want to be near Banana Beach, there are plenty more apartments in the area. We were the last to get off and shown the direction of our chalet.

It was quite a climb but what a view when we reached it. That evening we wandered down towards Koukounaries and ate in one of several restaurants along the main road that leads to Skiathos town. Our evenings tended to alternate between eating out, which was relatively cheap, or cooking back at the chalet and enjoying the sunset.

On the first full day of our fortnights holiday we went into Skiathas town a to look at the town itself and b to get as much information as we could about Skiathos island. The town was, as expected, busy but it was a relaxing busy with everyone enjoying the beautiful temperatures. The one thing that struck me as we stepped of the plane was the heat bouncing off the ground.

Average temperatures in Skiathos at that time of the year are in the mid to high twenties, eleven hours of sun and no rain. During the afternoon we caught the bus back to Koukounaries. The bus service is really good with busses running regularly and making many stops along the way.

Having read about them, though, none really looked to have 'naturist potential' until the far end and 'Banana Beach'. Late that afternoon we decided to have a look at the beach so after dropping off our supplies we walked down there.

When we arrived we were a little apprehensive because it appeared to be completely textile but we were aware that there was another section of the beach, over the rocks on the right hand side, that could be naturist. Our hopes were fulfilled. It was almost completely naturist, many people using the sunloungers and umbrellas, and there was a really friendly atmosphere there. We stayed for a couple of hours watching the sun drop before making our way back for supper.

This became a bit of a ritual at the end of the day but we never spent the full day there. The reason for this was, having studied all the information, we decided to hire bikes and make a more thorough exploration of the island. After coffee then lunch, we really liked Skiathos town, there was not enough time more than to cycle back to Koukounaries and start the next day. We had heard of a naturist area at a beach called Xanemos.

However, as this was almost directly under the flight path of planes flying into Skiathos , we decided to give it a miss. We chose to get off the 'beaten track' and explore towards the north coast and so, as near as possible, followed our tourist map and cycled inland.

The road gradually became hillier and rougher and it was at this point that a 4x4 drove past. Quite by chance we saw the couple later who said 'Are you the mad couple we saw cycling earlier? This was eight years ago and 4x4's were very rare on these roads.

We could go for over an hour without seeing anyone. I'm afraid the situation may have changed now. It was during this day that we came across the monastry of Panagias at Kounistras which was quite a surprise as it seemed to be in the middle of nowhere.

There were beautiful views from here. We had a great day finding various beautiful little coves but none of which we would have been comfortable naturist. It was after a couple of days that we came across the Mandraki peninsular further over towards the west.

Straight away this area seemed more promising. We liked Elias beach and were quite comfortable there as there were other naturist people. This, we decided, was the beach for us. It was virtually deserted and had a series of little huts built from driftwood where it was possible to keep food, and if necessary us, in the shade. The one slight disadvantage was the litter at the back of the beach that had been washed in during the winter storms.

This certainly did not spoil our enjoyment of the beach and we spent many relaxing days there during the fortnight. The other bonus was that it was only about thirty minutes walk from our chalet. On the last day of the bikes I had a puncture about eight kilometres from Skiathos town but the bus driver was really helpful and loaded the bike on the bus for me.

During our second week we arranged to meet up for the day with friends who happened to be staying on Skiathos and we hired a little motor boat. This was great because we were able to go along the south coast which just confirmed that there were no suitable naturist beaches there. Two particular places of note that day were Tsougria Island which is not too far off Skiathos town, and Lalaria beach.

Tsougria was great because as we landed there was a little shack where it was possible to buy a drink and barbequed sprats. Lalaria beach is spectacular, situated beneath huge cliffs and only being accessible by sea. For this reason it is not really suitable for naturism because there is a constant flow of craft visiting the beach.

Nevertheless, it is well worth a visit for the sheer beauty of the place with the tunnels in the rocks at the end of the beach.

Our honeymoon on Skiathos was great. We did plenty of cycling and exploring, and we also found a lovely beach. Probably more importantly, it whetted our appetite to visit more of the beautiful Greek Islands. Please subscribe to our newsletter Naturist Times.
