There are also taxi boats to the offshore islet of Tsougria (€5, 15 minutes) hourly from 10am to noon and 3pm to 5pm.


Buses run between Skiathos Town and Koukounaries Beach (€2, 30 minutes) every 15 minutes from 7am to 11pm in July and August, with slightly reduced services the rest of the year (timetables are posted at stops); they stop at 26 numbered beach-access points along the south coast.
