After dark, relaxed cocktails are the order of the evening, or maybe a trip to the open air cinema. As shiny as Skiathos Town is, the old quarter allows you to rewind to a simpler time. Wander the narrow alleyways, stopping at tiny, hole-in-the-wall shops and tavernas on your way.
There are some stunning beaches to discover on Skiathos, particularly on the south coast where the high-class resorts of Troulos and Kolios await. For a real 'desert island' experience, however, head to Mandraki Beach for soft, golden sands backed by thick forests and boasting mountain views.
The ancient island capital of Kastro is another tranquil beach spot, where you can swim, explore the quaint hillside churches and drink in the beautiful vistas out to sea. This fortified former capital was built in the 14th century as a refuge from marauding pirates, in particular the Barbarossa brothers.
Skiathos is an exciting prospect for keen explorers, and the island has a lot to offer in terms of breathtaking scenery and amazing natural attractions. Why not hike the mountains and take in the glorious views, take a cycle tour of the island, or head out across the water on a coastal adventure by boat?
If you decide to take a boat trip, you can head to neighbouring Skopelos, where rolling green hills and brilliant white sand beaches blanket the island or, for a mainland Greece experience, you can hop over to Athens where an abundance of cultural, historical and natural delights can be enjoyed.
Tradition meets glamour on this fabulous island, with its blend of traditional Greek scenery and landscapes, tavernas and traditions, juxtaposed with its glossy high-end hotels and restaurants and gleaming yachts bobbing about the harbour. This is a great choice if you’re looking for days spent between the beach and visiting the fascinating historical monuments around the island, and evenings spent sipping cocktails in a chic bar with fantastic views over the Aegean. Book your flights to Skiathos with Thomas Cook Airlines and join the beautiful people on this equally beautiful Greek island.
