Xanemos beach is located right behind the takeoff and landing strip, and despite signs warning people of the danger and to stay away, plenty still come and even attempt to film the experience.

The airport is one of the most spectacular in Europe to see low landings and close range takeoffs. It is often dubbed the second St Maartan, after the island in the Caribbean where extreme low landings have been skimming the heads of expectant tourists for decades.

The Skiathos airport has a 5,341ft runway, which can accommodate aircraft up to the size of a Boeing 757-200.
