Why go to Skiathos

With soft sandy beaches and a sea that’s almost as warm and blue as the Caribbean, Skiathos is an idyllic destination for a classic summer holiday. But don’t just let the charms of the coast sweep you away. Venture further inland and you’ll discover another, more rustic side to this charming Greek island.

You don’t have to settle for just one beautiful beach on your Skiathos holiday – the island has more than 60. One day you could be partying at Big Banana beach, which is also a top spot for watersports, and the next you could find yourself at Maratha, a hidden cove with a small taverna and plenty of peace and quiet. There’s basically a beach for everyone.

And sunshine, swimming and cocktails aren’t the only draws to this popular Sporades island. Beyond the coast, you’ll find Skiathos’ fertile hills, home to traditional villages and waymarked pathways that lead to historic monasteries. And the steep climb up from the beach in Kastro rewards you with an atmospheric collection of ruins and clifftop ocean views.
