Dutchman and I went right here twice! And that is a lot simply because there had been a lot of good beaches in Skiathos. We liked the smaller and cosy place and the vibe of the beach. There is a trendy beach bar cafe and restaurant which owns a row of rental parasols and sunbeds. We really like the music flowing from the bar cafe to the beach.
What can you ask far more on a summer season beach vacation?
Oh yeah, meals! Of course.

There is not substantially to inform seriously except for the photographs. It was a different day on the beach paradise in the Greek Islands. Dutchman and I just unwind on the sunbed, swim from time to time, study a book, sip on our drinks and persons watch.
This is the view in front of us. A young household busy with their kid.
Vromolimnos Beach is a bay beach on the southern aspect of the island facing the Aegean Sea. The waters right here are calm and the seabed steadily goes deep into the sea which is ideal for swimming.
This beach does not give you the perception of mass tourism which we felt at Koukounaries, Agia Paraskevi, and Megali Ammos beaches.
So the Dutchman did not take a photo of this man playing ping pong on the beach. If you appear closely on the image that is imply dipping in the water with my straw hat on =)
We ordinarily have brunch at the vacation apartment so when we are out beaching in the afternoon, we do not seriously consume a lot. We also take some nibbles and drinks with us, having said that, at beaches like this, we order a light snack and some drinks.
A Greek Salad is often excellent at the beach and some chilled Aperol Spritz. Fortunately the bar serves Aperol.
Dutchman and I just stayed place. Individuals have come and gone… we had been nonetheless there.
We ordinarily remain late on the beach. We wait till the sun sets and nearly everybody has left just before we pack up our stuff. There is a sense of satisfaction to have spent your day at the beach till the final rays of the sun have hidden. Can you relate, or not?
The final hour on the beach…
The overhead net they employed as shade on the beach was seriously cool. It is the very first time I have observed this style. I like that it is white. It really is like a floating cloud safeguarding you from the sun.
Following the day at Vromolimnos Beach, we went to Kohyli Taverna for dinner.
We have been passing by this taverna a lot of instances as it is positioned appropriate on the primary road in Platanais. While the restaurant is on the side of the road, I noticed that it has a green fields view. I am a sucker for good views, so for a adjust, Dutchman and I decided to have dinner right here.
Appear at the lush green meadows view from our table. So serene and so wonderful! Surely a key adjust of setting from the beach. My heart even skipped a bit when we saw a quantity of goats grazing on the fields in the distance.
We thanked ourselves for choosing this taverna and for getting a view like this for dinner.
We began with the obligatory bread simply because, in Greece, the restaurants will often give you bread, by hook or by crook. Then they charge you with it. It really is like a cover charge issue.
We got caught in a conversation with the owner of the taverna. He is Greek, definitely, and when he realised that we are from the Netherlands, he immediately switched to speaking “some Dutch”.
We discovered that he lived in the Netherlands for a time immediately after finding married to a Dutch lady. The connection, having said that, did not final lengthy and they divorced. Following they parted approaches, he went back to Greece and began this restaurant in Skiathos.
Nonetheless, Dutchman and I believed that he should have told his story to each and every Dutch tourist that visits his taverna, and just before we knew it, the meals arrived! Service right here was quite fast.
Dutchman ordered pasta with beef stew, Moshari Kokkinisto. We’ve very first attempted this when we had been in Corfu a lot of years ago. They have a diverse name for this dish there – Pastitsada. I, on the other hand, settled some fresh grilled sardines that came with a salad.
What a wonderful dinner with a green meadow view.
The dinner was quite basic and scrumptious. We are fairly delighted to have picked this restaurant. The green fields view was quite excellent for a adjust.
When dinner was completed, we had coffee and had been offered some neighborhood syrupy sweet cake from the home to go with it. In the Greek Islands, most tavernas will give cost-free smaller desserts which are ideal simply because I am not seriously dessert gal but for a smaller (and cost-free) bite, why not?
