Set in the warm Aegean Sea, the island of Skiathos is smothered in traditional Greek charm and surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters. I had the opportunity to visit Skiathos during the first week of July this year. The weather was fantastic without being unbearably hot, while the town was busy without being overcrowded.
Skiathos is definitely an island with lots to do, however there is always the option of relaxing with a good book on one of the many golden, sandy beaches that fringe the island.
During my seven-night stay I hired a speedboat for a day and explored some of the many uninhabited islands in the area–great if you like finding your very own private beach for the day! I also hired a 4×4 Jeep for the day and explored inland Skiathos where I discovered several beautiful Fransiscan monasteries with stunning, elevated views of the coast. Car hire is not essential on the island as the bus service is both regular and reliable. Taxis are also widely available and reasonable priced. Eating out in Skiathos is the name of the game so self catering accommodation is recommended and readily available. There are quite literally hundreds of tavernas on the island where you will find all the local dishes and the fresh catch of the day! Prices are very reasonable in such establishments and they are usually open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (which can start as late as 11pm!). For a slightly more upmarket eating experience there is a wide choice of restaurants in Skiathos Town offering superb a la carte dining.
Whatever your taste, Skiathos is definitely a destination to be savoured!
