Famous Lalaria beach and its unique round pebbles on the island of Skiathos are at risk due to the human factor. A campaign by the local cultural organization aims to preserve the exquisite landscape of one of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Skiathos and the whole Greece.
In cooperation with the Port Authorities, the Cultural Association of Skiathos launched the campaign “Take a Picture, not a Pebble – Save Lalaria Beach.”
The unique pebbles – ‘lalaria’ in the local dialect – are formed only on this particular beach and its centuries-old beauty is at risk due to the human factor.
Visitors love to take lalaria pebble from the beach as a souvenir from a once in a life time experience.
With every pebble that disappeared, the Cultural Association and the Port Authorities on Skiathos took one more step towards materialization of the protection plan.
It looks as if a couple of days ago, the measures to protect Lalaria Beach have become a real fact: campaign plagues have been installed at every touristic boat that sails to the famous beach.
