Skiathos has a veneer of elegance and sophistication unusual for a small Greek Island. Very compact (only eight miles long) it is thickly forested and almost unrealistically pretty.
Along its undulating coastline hide over fifty beaches, almost all sandy. (A pebble beach on Skiathos is so rare that they offer boat excursions to the one at Lalaria!). Those along the southern coast are linked with the town by a frequent, if crowded, bus service. Whichever beach you choose, the swimming is first rate and the sea crystal-clear.
Holidays In Skiathos
Skiathos town is very attractive. A jumble of red-roofed houses and climbing stone-paved streets cover the rocky arms of the small harbour. During the day the town can appear rather sleepy, but in the evenings the waterfront hums with life and a daunting array of restaurants confronts one. Nightlife could mean a quiet café, a lively bar or an up-to-the minute music club – whatever your taste, Skiathos can accommodate it.
Fast, efficient catamarans link Skiathos with Skopelos and Alonissos making two-centre holidays simple. Excursions available include a good selection of boat trips.
Were we to design the perfect ‘holiday’ island, we would be surprised if the finished product did not look suspiciously like Skiathos. This small isle really does seem to have everything – beaches, lush scenery, a pretty port, good (but unobtrusive) nightlife, and plenty to do should you so wish.
Understandably, Skiathos is very popular, and gets particularly busy in the high season.
