Golden sandy beaches are sandwiched between sparkling blue seas and lush green forests, and the island's charming villages await.
Sitting pretty in the Aegean Sea off the east coast of Greece, the green oasis of Skiathos is a holiday paradise. The setting is uniquely beautiful, and the island attracts a cosmopolitan crowd that appreciates fine Greek cuisine and sophisticated nightlife by night and beaches minus the crowds by day. It's no wonder that the makers of Mamma Mia! shot some scenes for the musical movie starring Meryl Streep here.
Skiathos holidays begin after you've arrived at Skiathos Island Airport (JSI). Once you've reached your holiday resort, unpack your sunshine wardrobe, and then set about discovering one of the island's 60 or so sand and pebble beaches. Perhaps the cliffs and arch formation of stunning Lalaria Beach will have you reaching for the camera? Maybe the beach at Kolios will have you reaching for the sun cream? Wherever you choose to laze on the sand, lie back and soak up the sunshine in this simply stunning part of the world.
The villages of Skiathos are traditional and a world away from high-rise resorts and thumping nightclubs. Here the pace is slower and the locals will welcome you with typically warm Greek hospitality - expect a shot of traditional raki on arrival in your resort.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
