It is hard to say that Skidia is a beach, it is rather a swimming spot surrounded by rocks, with crystal clear blue water. The beach is also known as Kekes, after the name of a complex with bungalows to rent. The seaside taverna Skikid is part of the complex and the only restaurant available at this place.
Skidia is located between Thimonia
. The main island road passes very close to the beach but you cannot see it through the high green trees You should look for the signboard of Taverna Skidia and you will end up at a parking space under the shade of the trees. The tables of the taverna are positioned on the rocks just by the sea, and from both sides there are two tiny rocky coves which you can use for swimming and snorkeling. Iron stairs are also available so you can go directly into the sea from the rocks. One of the coves has a patch of sand around the shore but the sea bottom is quite pebbly and aquas shoes are highly recommendable.
The traditional Taverna Skidia serves not only fresh fish and sea food but also organic vegetables from their garden. The dishes are baked in a large stone oven and cooked after family recipes. It is a good place to visit if you do not want to swim here.
