Condé Nast Traveler names Skiathos as the best island for beaches



Skiathos was awarded the Readers’ Choice Awards 2019 by top travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler, for the island with the world’s best beaches for 2019!

Over 600,000 Conde Nast Traveler readers voted for the best travel choices of the year.

"Located in the Aegean Sea, the Sporades island group consists of 24 Greek islands covered in olive, fig, and almond trees; miles of beaches; and unspoiled views around every corner. One of the most popular destinations, Skiathos, has more than 60 hotels despite its relatively small size. Whether you’re into raucous beach days or lounging in solitude, a sandy escape is never out of reach. While on the island, check out Koukounariés Beach, known for its pine forest that goes right to the water’s edge, or Krassa Bay, which attracts young partygoers seeking water sports and all-night ragers in the nearby bars and clubs," Conde Nast Traveler stated in their announcement.

  1. Skiathos, Greece
  2. Culebra, Puerto Rico
  3. Boracay, Philippines
  4. Kiawah Island, South Carolina
