All you have dreamt of
Skiáthos is considered the most cosmopolitan island in the Northern Sporades. It might only be 46 square kilometers, but it has some of the best beaches of the Greek islands, a large variety of taverns, restaurants, bars and places to relax and the furthermore it is absolutely gorgeous, truly a heavenly place on earth, with lush pine forests and crystal-clear Caribbean like waters.
Even though Skiathos is a small island, the growth in tourism in recent years has not affected the scenery much. The island is still as picturesque as it was, and offers more than 60 beautifully clean beaches, ranging from long sandy beaches like Koukounaries, which has been declared the third most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean, to white pebble beaches in the north side, like Lalaria.
When you add in its quite delirious nightlife, especially in “Chora”, with discos but also small bars spread everywhere, you can understand why the island attracts thousands of visitors every year!
Whether you want to hide yourself away from the crowds, in a secluded beach, or walk the pedestrianized street located in the old harbor seeking places to dance until you drop, Skiathos is the island you are seeking for, look no further.
