Agia Eleni beach in Skiathos island
The bay of St. Eleni, that was named so from the small church that is located there and is dedicated to St. Eleni, opens its arms to the west. Thus, the sun shines until very late in the afternoon and, while swimming there, you will take advantage of its last rays. The clear blue waters will greet you in a warm embrace and the pine trees that reach the water will cool you down with their dense shade.
The beautiful sandy beach of Agia Eleni is located about 14 km from the town of Skiathos, in the western tip of the island, about a kilometer west of Koukounaries. The organization is rudimentary but it will indemnify you with its crystal clear sea and golden sand.
