Get ready for a relaxing day in the warm Greek sunshine when you spend the day at Troulos Beach. It's the centre of all the action for this peaceful little village, and the perfect place to unwind and recharge your batteries. Arriving at the Blue Flag beach, you can hire a sun lounger with a parasol, or lay down your towel on the soft golden sand. Sit back with a good book, gaze out across the clear Aegean Sea, or just close your eyes and let your mind wander. When it's time to cool off, make your way down to the water's edge and go swimming or snorkelling. If you have young children, then build some sandcastles or strap on some armbands and splash around in the shallows for a while. Troulos is a relatively quiet resort compared to other spots in Skiathos, so the beach doesn't get overly crowded even in summer, so it's ideal for playing with your little ones. There's also a lifeguard on duty, so you can be reassured there's an extra pair of eyes looking out for you. When you get hungry, there's a choice of welcoming tavernas along the beach where you'll find friendly staff and plenty of shade while you have a quick bite. Sip a cool drink with views back over the beach, before you head back to the sands for the rest of the afternoon. If you want a bit of action, get involved with some of the watersports on offer. Hold on tight on a banana boat, have a go at waterskiing, or rent your own boat and cruise around the coast as you look for a quiet bay to drop anchor in. After a great day at Troulos Beach, head to Skiathos Town and book a boat trip before having dinner with views of the harbour.
