Skiathos is a small Greek island in the northwest Aegean Sea.
Skiathos is the westernmost island in the Northern Sporades group.
It is located east of the Pelion peninsula in Magnesia on the mainland, and west of the island of Skopelos.
The modern major road on Skiathos runs along the eastern and southern coast.
Narrower roads, some paved and some dirt, reach the interior and the northwest coastline.
There is regular, and during tourist season, very frequent bus transit from the main town to the Koukounaries beach in the southwest. There are three bus routes on the island.
The core route is from the main town to Koukounaries beach which travels along the south coast of the island. There are in total 26 bus stops, with Koukounaries Beach being the last stop, number 26.
This route operates a fleet of five coaches as frequently as five times an hour during the summer peak season throughout the day, but is significantly reduced during the winter.
