Southeast of beautiful Skiathos, the smallest of the sporadic islands, lies Tsougkria, also known as Tsoungria or Tsougra
It is a splendid islet, completely uninhabited since 2011. Except for the summer months, during the year Tsougkria is animated by the presence only of goats! A wild, uncontaminated place, with really beautiful and suggestive beaches and coves. Not even the presence of the many tourists, in August, manages to scratch the magic and charm of the small island. In any case, here, even in the height of summer, you will never find the crowds that are registered in the most famous beaches of Skiathos.
From the port of Skiathos, from the end of May to the beginning of October, taxi boats reach Tsougkria every day. The journey takes approximately 20 minutes. Tickets, which can be purchased at the desks of the companies located at the port, cost around €11 for a round trip.
Generally, there are 3 trips from 10 to 12 from the port. At about 18:00, last useful departure to return to Skiathos. Our advice is to take the first taxi boat to make the most of the time available.
Those who just want a simple “taste” of the island can opt for a tour. In this way, you will have the opportunity to visit three or a few beaches, including that of Tsougria, during the same day. Excursions always depart from the port of Skiathos. You can inquire about rates and itinerary directly on site.
The boats dock on the western side of the small islet. Here you will find two expanses separated by the small promontory where another splendid church stands.
Splendid golden sand and a crystalline sea of a thousand colors and shades, characterize Tsougria Beach. Quiet beach, equipped with few sun beds and umbrellas. You will find a small tavern bar for an incredible and affordable sea-view lunch.
In a splendid position, less than 5 minutes on foot, stands the Eklissia Agios Floros. A small path from the beach leads to this splendid church which enjoys a truly fantastic view. From here, splendid views and photographic shots.
