Discover the Charm of Skiathos
Home to the famous musical Mamma Mia, the stunning Greek island of Skiathos has become incredibly popular among British Holidaymakers, and is renowned for its vibrant atmosphere, golden beaches and lush green landscape. Only 16km long, Skiathos is a relaxing two hour ferry ride from the Greek mainland and served by a single main road which is serviced by frequent buses, so getting around the island is a breeze.
Skiathos has a rich history and is home to some charming, ancient churches and monastries, including the working monsatery Panagia Evangelistria, where you can sample the local wine. Be sure to visit the medieval town of Kastro too, which is nestled on top of a craggy cliff.
On the south side of the island, you will discover Skiathos' spectacular sandy beaches, including the beautiful bay of Koukounaries, where you can indulge in water sports or a spot of horse-riding and stay at the popular Skiathos Palace Hotel. We recommend taking a sailing day trip on Skiathos' clear blue waters in order to fully explore and appreciate this beautiful island.
If you are feeling energetic, you can hire mountain bikes and tour the picturesque mountains of Skiathos before relaxing in the evening in some of the outstanding restaurants that the island has to offer.
Exploring Skiathos and the Sporades Islands
Skiathos Town, the island's capital, has a chic and bustling nightlife, as well as a plentiful choice of places to eat and drink. An old Ventian fortress sits in the main port and is used for open-air theatre. Skiathos is one of the Sporades Islands and visitors will often take the opportunity to partake in a spot of island-hopping and explore the neighbouring islands of Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros.
