While Achladies is much more relaxed and laidback in comparison to other Skiathos resorts - which in itself is more relaxed than other islands off the coast of Greece - it's near enough to Skiathos Town for holidaymakers be part of the action if they so wish.

While it's first and foremost a beach resort, there are also plenty of activities available both on and off the beach. There's no need to feel as though you're going to get trampled by other tourists because the beach isn't overcrowded at all. The waters are also safe and shallow, making Achladies a popular choice for families with small children.

While Achladies may have its fair share of places to explore, Skiathos Town has even more. Restaurants, shops and tavernas fringe its streets, while the vibrant nightlife helps you to crank your evening up a little if you'd like something a more up-tempo for a change.
Back in medieval times, Kastro was the capital of the island and can be found in the modern day village of the same name. Take an afternoon to spot the various ruins and imagine what the area would have looked like back when the city ruled the island.
As one of the most noted beaches on the island of Skiathos, Lalaria Beach is a real treat for the eyes. Cobalt waters wash up on the golden sands, with archways that have eroded over time speckling the horizon ' particularly Tripia Petra, which can be found on many a postcard because of its standout appearance. Apparently, if you swim under the 'bridge' it has formed, you get younger! Anyone up for laps?
Watersports on the Beach
Jet across the ocean on a jet ski or try your hand at waterskiing, as you are propelled across the waves from the back of a motorboat. Alternatively, ride the crests and kick up some spray as you windsurf your way to shore!
