Resort Summary

If you love watersports or feel compelled to relax on a sun-baked beach, then Achladies Bay is a wonderful base to centre your Skiathos holiday activities. It’s straightforward to get to nearby Skiathos Town from here – simply hail a water taxi or catch a bus from the main road. Try taking the water taxi after the sun sets if only to enjoy the breathtaking views.

Achladies Bay has a couple of shops, as well as a bakery, and it’s easy to find snacks and drinks at the beachside tavernas. Live music and WiFi access are just a few of the attractions these outlets provide. If you’re looking for a wider range of shops, a vibrant nightlife and sailing opportunities then the short trip to Skiathos Town is worthwhile, returning later to the peace and tranquility of Achladies in order to relax.

Walkers will enjoy following simple goat tracks to the idyllic Kalamaki peninsula on their holidays to Greece. With its hidden coves and remote beaches, this location is great for simply getting away from it all. There are no buses to the Kalamaki peninsular from Achladies, but there are half-hourly water taxis from Skiathos Town.
