"As most Skiathos northern beaches, Mandraki beach is characterized by an enviable calm. Shallow (???) turquoise waters and golden fine sand, deservingly steals a place among the most beloved beaches of the island.
Sometimes called Xerxes's harbor, this is where the notorious Persian king stopped on his way to ultimate defeat at the battles of Artemisium and Salamis. The reefs opposite are the site of a monument Xerxes allegedly erected as a warning to ships, the first such marker known in history."
NOT so shallow waters in my opinion...
