On the glittering sea shores

Thessaly reveals its multi-dimensional summer persona: beaches which can easily compare with popular exotic destinations, unspoilt nature and adventure, impeccable organization and that essential touch of romance.

Skiathos: The “Bahamas” of Greece

Summer moments on “international” Skiathos and its cosmopolitan beaches! On the golden beach of Koukounaries, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds, with a hot blast of summer at the water’s edge as well as a chance to cool off as the sands dunes roll up to the shade of a dense pine forest. You run exuberantly towards the waiting waves, your tanned skin craving their silky, crystalline touch. Your adrenaline hits an all-time high as you skim around the bay on a jet ski. High spirits are infectious on Banana, with its pulsating beats to keep things cool and kicking! On Lalaria, the stunning alabaster rock amplifies the dazzle of the sun, making your day on the beach shine above all others.

Skopelos: Summer’s cradle of love

Love on the breeze and the unmistakable aroma of salty sea embroider an ideal holiday scenario for two on Panormos. Walk with your other half under the trees in Kastani – evoking Mama Mia memories. When you look at the rocks sinking into the sea together with the crimson sun at sunset on Milia, Cupid’s arrow will surely find its mark.

Paradise awaits on Alonissos

Dive into the emerald waters of Milia. Swim until you reach the reddish rocks of Kokkinokastro. With every stroke, the wild beauty around becomes all the more captivating. Channel the intrepid National Geographic explorer inside you and take the plunge down to the Marine Park to get a picture of the rare Monachus Monachus seal with your underwater camera.

Holidays in the Centaurs’ homeland

Holidays on the beaches of Pelion have many different faces. Once home to the mythical Centaurs, a sense of magic still runs through every strand of this ancient land. From children’s shrieks of delight as they splash around in the waves of Papa Nero to the consummate cool of the legendary beach bar of Potistika. From the taverns with fresh fish on Platanidia to the mesmeric passage through the vast “ring”, the rock that connects the two beaches on Mylopotamos. Top all this off with a few olives, a piece of cheese in Volos… that’s your meze dish – you see delight comes through the simple things too!

Summer under the gaze of Mt Olympus

The beaches beneath Mt Olympus are an open book of discovery for both young and old alike; there’s always something for everyone. How about splashing about in the shallow waters of Mesagala or sprawling on delightful sand and sinking into the thermal springs of Kokkino Nero. The Riviera of Larissa is full of surprises of its own: on the Blue Flag beach of Agiokampos, you can join the never-ending dance at its beach parties. Just so happens there’s a concert on tonight. Are you coming?
