Whether you’re looking for a quiet, laid-back beach break or you’re planning a well-earned holiday with the family, Troulos holidays offers a little slice of paradise. A rural, seaside village, it’s culture is rich in Greek tradition and small on crowds, allowing you to really get away from it all. Troulos Bay is an idyllic sweep of sugar-white sand and sapphire-blue waters, fringed with olive groves and perfumed by pines. While the destination is hidden away from the island’s main tourist spots, you’re still within easy reach of up-tempo living, should you want it. Skiathos’ lively town centre is a mere 20-minute bus-ride away, offering buzzing bars and neon nightclubs. However, if you’d rather focus on topping up your tan and leisurely meals with a cold glass of something local, it’s the perfect place to unwind.
Surrounded by the inviting waters of the Aegean, it’s no surprise that many of Troulos’ activities revolve around the sea. Whether you want to try a new watersport, go on a sailing trip around the Sporades islands, or hire your own boat for the day, you’re sure to find some fun on the waves. If you prefer, you can simply paddle, swim and snorkel to your heart’s content.
Skiathos has some great attractions if you want to explore the island. Whether you’re visiting historic monasteries, medieval castles or climbing mountains for spectacular panoramic views, Troulos can be a fantastic base for you. There’s a bus service that runs right along the island’s south coast from Skiathos Town to Koukounaries, making it nice and easy to get to places like beautiful Hidden Beach or lively Banana Beach.
When it’s time to relax, make your way down to Troulos Beach and spend the day soaking up the golden Greek sunshine. Troulos is between busier spots Skiathos Town and Koukounaries, and it’s a quieter place than the other two places. This makes it the perfect spot to come if you want to unwind in peaceful surroundings with your family or partner.
