Comments Skoutari Beach is set on the Gulf of Skoutari.
On the left half of the Gulf the beach is all yellow sand. On the right side the beach is made of large pebbles as is the sea floor.
The water is crystal clear and inviting.
We go there once every two years from Melbourne Australia. We like it so much.

Comments I stayed at Hotel Skoutari - great place for family vacations with sunset view apartments. On the left the beach is sandy and there are few small "bays" surrounded by rocks which gives some privacy. In June there was nobody but us and some kids in the afternoon

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
