Summary of 'Skiathos Island' (⇐ click for all 'Skiathos' pages)
Picturesque Skiathos Village (10 mins) and harbour saw the ‘arrival of the fathers’ in "Mamma Mia" (with the wedding in Agios Ioannis church on nearby Skopelos). Paved traffic-
free alleys lead to two taverna-lined harbours and marinas, scores of shops tavernas, night-clubs and bars, and all services.
Skiathos has a world-class scenic coast and views (click for ⇒ 'Photos'), with literally scores of beaches and coves - most sandy – and the dozen or so larger ones with tavernas and water-sports. All are within 5-25 mins drive of all villas (or by water-taxi from the harbour, and maybe a scramble down to a favourite secluded cove).
Away from the beaches are dozens of village and country tavernas; hill and forest hikes and drives, horse-riding, trail biking; and restored decorated Byzantine chapels and monasteries (sorry, no classical ruins!).
And all this on an island barely nine miles by six, seen by many as the most attractive in all Greece.
But - if you prefer not to drive, or spend most of your time at the villa, local transport is good - bus, reliable radio-taxis, bus, water-taxi… and ferries for inter-island or mainland excursions.
