Skiathos Hotels


Not just your typical holiday destination, Skiathos is a Greek Island to remember. Combining beautiful buildings, history, scrumptious Greek cuisine and of course stunning shores, this island is a little piece of heaven that is perfect for a relaxing break in the Greek sunshine.

Experience sandy shores on the south of the island, met by the soothing waters of the Aegean Sea. Koukounaries Beach offers spacious golden sands and a stunning panoramic backdrop of the lush green pine trees. For a smaller scale beach, Kolios is a laid-back stretch of shore where you can relax on a lounger or even get stuck into water sports. Heading up to the north of the island, Lalaria beach is a must-visit pebbled beach with fascinating rock formations and crystal-blue waters.

Food & Drink
Expect traditional Greek cuisine on the island of Skiathos, fresh Greek salads with bread drizzle in olive oil, tzatziki and moussaka. If you’re looking for a quick bite with maximum taste, the Greek gyros are grilled meat kebabs served in a pitta with tomato, onion, tzatziki and a handful of French fries in. Seafood lovers will be delighted with the tavernas and restaurants, mainly located by the sea or harbour, serving delicious dishes made with freshly caught fish. Typical Greek alcoholic drinks include Ouzo, a strong aniseed tasting spirit typically offered at the end of meals, and of course wine with the amount of vineyards on the islands.

An island oozing with culture, you can experience Skiathos’ history at ease with a vast amount of historic sites and cultural landmarks dotted throughout the island. From the Evangelistria Monastery to the house of Alexandros Papadiamantis, the ancient architecture of the island is something to boast about. So, it’s not surprising that its stunning landscape was used as a setting for the hit film Mamma Mia!

As a summer holiday location, beach bars are dotted around the coast – perfect for evening drinks by the sea. If you want a little more oomph in your nightlife, then Skiathos Town is the place to be. Danny and Zoe’s Blind Dog bar hosts live music to dance the night away to. If you’re more into rock music, Rock and Roll bar is a popular venue for drinks and parties through the night. For a more relaxing evening out, the Attikon outdoor cinema is a wonderful open air film experience in a rustic setting.
