Mystique (no, not that one!)

This one!

A Beautiful new Beach Bar and Restaurant opened here a couple of weeks ago and it has raised the bar for the rest of the island’s waterside venues. Situated at the fabulous white sandy ‘Ambelakia’ beach, at the far eastern end of Skiathos (under the old and now abandoned Xenia Hotel) it is the last word in chic. Set amid lawns and gardens it is a perfect oasis,  beautifully yet simply designed and to my mind its one of the most elegant places on the island.

Theres a lounge/bar area and a separate restaurant where the service is impeccable and the food deliciously healthy and impressively presented:

and despite oozing with fine quality fixtures and understated style,

The prices are surprisingly reasonable too! Between the two areas, there’s a resident DJ playing cool (and not overpowering, for once!) music and the washroom facilities, set well back in a separate brick-built building, are arguably the best to be found on any of Skiathos’ many beaches.

It’s quite a steep descent from the road down the wide decked steps so arriving by sea (and to avoid an uphill climb at the end of the day) is probably the ideal way to visit, but, if you’re looking for somewhere to totally chill out at the water’s edge, a visit either way is an absolute must!
