Even if Ksanemos beach is particularly near to Skiathos town, it is a pretty quiet place since it is not on the bus route Skiathos-Koukounaries but on the other side of the island, very close to the airport.
Xanemos beach has every characteristic of the "northern" beach. Deepens suddenly, the water is cold and often there are big waves. In the beach operates a traditional Greek tavern where visitors can enjoy coffees, ice-creams, light drinks and meals by the sea.
A peculiarity that makes Ksanemos truly unique is it's close distance to the airport. The beach is actually located behind airport's runway and the airplanes fly literally a few meters above visitor's heads.
