Troulos is truly picture perfect- imagine a beach with golden sand and turquoise blue crystal waters, honestly a great place to spend the day. It took its name by the tiny islet right opposite it which has the shape of a Christian Orthodox dome. The bay is family-friendly because of the crystal clear calm waters and the lifeguard staff who are on the beach on a daily basis .It is also well- developed about 9 kilometers southest of Skiathos with sun beds, umbrella s and wide variety of facilities to accommodate the needs of households with small children.
This is one of the best known and well- organized beaches in Skiathos with a lot of restaurants, tavernas, snack bars just by the wave and a variety of Skiathos hotels. Here you can opt for a variety of water sports like a snorkeling and also you can rent motorboats to arrange trips into the smaller, beaches round the headlands that could not be accessed otherwise. Another attraction of Troulos beach is the pool bars with pools open to public, something that gives a luxurious feel and more fun to your holidays. For some reason the place is attracted by British people and their influence on the region is so intense that it sometimes looks like an English settlement!
There is an incredible range of things to do in Troulos, for those who love adventure; there are well-defined walking trails to Aselinos shore or even to Mandraki area. But there’s more for the bold swimmers, you could swim till the rocky cliffs of Troulonisi — the islet opposite Troulos!
