A secluded getaway
The landscape of Troulos is unlike any other on the island of Skiathos. Here the pine trees reach the sea as the countryside makes a welcome appearance along the waterfront. The combination of the two landscapes coming together is beautiful and stepping foot into Troulos feels like it could be the only place with life in the whole of Skiathos. Although it is possibly the most developed resort on the island, holidays in Troulos feel like a chance to escape the crowds and indulge in a bit of peace and quiet away from the tourist traps. Holidays in Troulos are for those who want to spend their days lazing on the beach and their nights soaking up the beautiful starred sky of a Greek island.
Find the perfect beach for you
Troulos has plenty of beaches on offer for its visitors and each offers something a little different from the one next door. Those immediately adjacent to the hotel are full of life and activities. There are a number of water sport centres along the main promenade and a mix of bars and tavernas for when you want to cool off. If you swap your flip flops for walking shoes and head a little further along the coastline you’ll be duly rewarded. Aselinos Beach and Micro Aselinos Beach are much more secluded and, at times, you could be the only one there. Don’t let the name ‘Super Paradise Beach’ put you off, it’s definitely not as cheesy as it sounds! Follow the signs and lie amongst the olive trees as you dip your toes into the clear turquoise water.
Enjoy a holiday in Skiathos
Everything is quite close by on the island of Skiathos so if you’re getting itchy feet to explore a little further than Troulos, it’s simple to do. The capital, Skiathos Town, is a great place to visit in the evenings to enjoy a bit of hustle and bustle, while the resort of Kolios is another secluded getaway. Those who want to try their first hand at some water sports might want to visit Megali Ammos, the ‘Big Beach’, with its variety of water schools.
