Embraced by olive groves and attractive countryside, TROULOS is the most developed tourist area outside of Skiathos Town.
Troulos village lies a little way inland and holidaymakers should check out the distances to Troulos beach when booking holiday apartments and studios.
Troulos village centre has a reasonable choice of supermarkets, bars and tavernas. For those who want a livelier night out, Skiathos Town is just 10 km away by bus to the east and the very popular Koukounaries beach is just five minutes to the west.
Troulos has a long, deep and very sandy beach. Troulos sands slope gently into the sea, so this is a good beach for families. There is a watersports centre and also boat rental, a beach taverna, snack bar. A hotel restaurant sits right on the end of the beach close to the shore.
There are several smaller beaches around the Troulos headlands, both east and west, but they can be difficult to reach on foot and visitors usually get to them by boat.
The Troulos area starts at bus stop 18, at the crossroads for Aselinos and the Monastery of Kounistria, and it runs to bus stop 21 at Maratha, with easy access to the beach all along this stretch.
There is plenty of accommodation in Troulos, most of it tucked away in quiet areas among the trees. The Troulos area is known for its good walks.
There is a rough track to the north coast Aselinos beach that takes about one hour to walk and a longer 90 min walk along tracks to Mikro Aselinos beach, passing the Kounistria Monastery. From here its possible to walk to the beaches in the Mandraki area, a walk that takes about two hours.
