Skiathos lies in the Sporades islands, east of the Pelion peninsula and north of Evia, 41 nautical miles from Volos. There are forests with pine trees, many sites of interest, such as the medieval castle, the fortress in Bourtzi, many churches and monasteries.

The capital town of Skiathos, the biggest settlement on the island, is a modern resort with excellent tourist facilities. The town is relatively new. The town’s most important landmark is its natural harbour, which has determined the destiny of the town for centuries.
Today it is a popular yacht and sailing boat haven that adds a cosmopolitan flair to the island.
A stroll around the town’s paved streets reveals cute white houses with red tiled roofs and colourful gardens. The picturesque harbour surrounded by four small islets is a sight not to be forgotten.
Visitors should not pass up the chance to visit Bourtzi, a small peninsula with lush vegetation where the ruins of a Venetian fortress still stand. Apart from Bourtzi they must not miss the opportunity to visit the former house and now museum of the famous author Alexandros Papadiamantis.

The island has 60 superb beaches, among which Koukounariés or Golden Sand in the southwestern part of the island stands out. Koukounaries is the most famous and crowded beach on Skiathos. It boasts extremely fine white sand and is surrounded by pine trees and is considered one of the most unspoiled natural beaches in the Mediterranean and is a protected environment. There are also plenty of tavernas and lively cafes and bars.
If you like, you can also rent a boat, play tennis at one of the local hotels’ tennis courts or try out some exhilarating sea activities! Meyali Ammos, on the road to Koukounaries and Ahladies, is a popular beach with crystal clear waters and picture-perfect tavernas by the sea.

Skiathos, with its delirious night life, is a real treat for visitors and especially for young people seeking the freedom to ignore conventions and party on to the frenetic beats of their favourite music!
The pedestrianised street by the Old Harbour is the ultimate hotspot for entertainment!
Buzzing bars and clubs keep youngsters rocking through the night and until the early morning. Colourful cultural events, concerts and art exhibitions held throughout summer add a special touch to holidays on the island!
