If you want to spend a week or two soaking up some golden Mediterranean sunshine on a pristine beach, then Skiathos fits the bill. Stay in peaceful Troulos where the beach takes centre stage, or the livelier Koukounaries if you prefer a bit more action.
The beach is the best place to start no matter where you’re staying, with Skiathos offering everything from Blue Flag stretches to hidden bays and party vibes. Spend lazy days lounging around in the sand, and go for the occasional swim or snorkel to cool down. Try out some new water sports like waterskiing or parasailing, or hire your own boat and explore the coast at your own pace as you look for a quiet cove to drop anchor in.
When you’re ready to go sightseeing, head to Il Kastro, or the Castle of Skiathos. Found on the island’s northern tip, the views are as impressive as the historic fortification. Or make your way to the Monastery of Evangelistria just four kilometres north of Skiathos Town, which also has incredible views and plenty of history.
After a day’s exploration head back to lively Skiathos Town and go for some dinner by the harbour or sip a few drinks as the bars get busier. Whether you’re enjoying the nightlife, the walking trails or a boat trip to other islands, don’t miss out on our holidays to Skiathos from Manchester Airport.
