Sandy beach in Skiathos, Sporades island

Lalaria beach is located on the northeastern side of Skiathos, a small island of the northern Sporades. Its beauty and its unique characteristics are what have made Skiathos known to the world.

The beach has a majestic appearance that evokes awe and admiration for those who come here for the first time. Mainly because of the huge stone with the famous hole in the middle.

The rocks are impressive and start from the top of the slope ending at the back of the shore.

The steep white rocks are constantly exposed to the cold north winds. These winds for millions of years formed the round-white pebbles called “Lalaria” that today cover the entire beach.

These round-shaped pebbles are the special feature of the beach, and they gave their name to it.

The beach is secluded and the only way to visit it is by the sea, you better start in the morning by boat from the port or rent a boat by yourself.
