Skiathos Island is one of the Sporades islands which lays to the north-east of Evia and to the east and south-east of the Pelion Peninsula. Skiathos is the most popular and cosmopolitan island of the group and has many hotels and tourist facilities. Skiathos Island is renowned for its lovely beaches and dense pine forest, reaching down to the aquamarine seas.
Skiathos has in upwards of 60 beaches along its coastline, each of which with a distinct character varying in their offerings from fascinating snorkeling to fantastic tavernas and snack bars, to the most remote and secluded. The choice is yours to decide exactly which type of beach suits you mood. One of Skiathos’ beachs, Koukounaries, maintains the reputation of being the finest beach in the Aegean. This claim is highly credible as the beach’s waters are warm and crystal clear, with fine soft sand and surrounding pine trees to provide much needed shade for hot days. Other beaches of Skiathos to be mentioned are Megali Amnos, Vromolimnos which is fantastic for an early evening water ski. Archladias, Tzaneria, and Kolios, naming only a few. The interior of the island is as equally gorgeous as its coasts. Here a lush, green setting exists, composed of vast olive groves and pine forests, creating a far greener atmosphere than one would expect from predominantly craggy Greek Island landscapes.
The entire island of Skiathos has only one settlement which is both the port and the island’s capital, which lies on the southeast coast. Despite it’s small amount of settled area, Skiathos has an active nightlife, with bars and discos, visitors to Skiathos can enjoy themselves all night long.
