Ah Skiathos! Holidays in Skiathos are like a breath of fresh air. Open your eyes to the beautiful landscape and an instant feeling of relaxation washes over you here. From chic boutiques to the pine clad hills, Skiathos will enchant you from the moment you step off the plane.
It might not be the biggest of islands but Skiathos holidays are certainly packed full of exciting things to do. Take the beaches, they are picture postcard perfect and hard to do justice when putting them into words. Many say that they are some of the finest sands in all of Greece and with around 60 to chose from you will be hard pushed to pick a favourite. But beaches here aren't like your normal bucket and spade affairs, yes they have the grains ready for sandcastle building and the sea for a quick paddle, but many have another wow factor. Look behind you'll see shady pine trees and low green hills. This is one place where the pictures from the beach need to be 360 degrees!
Summer holidays to Skiathos are perfect and you'll find a great mix of the cosmopolitan and sleepy traditional villages. Skiathos Town has a chic air to it – designer shops, yachts moored at the harbour and plenty of places to dance the night away. But in stark contrast to this you'll also find sleepy villages during your Skiathos holiday that seem untouched by modern life. Beautiful countryside and a warm welcome await you here for a quiet Skiathos break.
Greece is famous for its cuisine and here the influence is heavy on the Greek. Long lingering lunches, even longer dinners, meze plates by the dozen and a bottle of retsina to wash it down with. Head to a traditional taverna and sample dishes that have been cooked and served the same way for generations. Where else would you find a culture so passionate about food? Ask nicely and you might be let in on a secret family recipe!
Is this island of contrast for you? With its gorgeous beaches, summer long sunshine and the perfect balance of sleepy villages and upbeat towns, a holiday in Skiathos might be the next one you book.
