Book flights to Skiathos for a Greek island holiday. Families will find the ‘island of beaches’ has plenty of shallow coves to choose from. Beyond the beach adventure awaits – hire a catamaran from Skiathos port.
For a true getaway, seek out remote coves – head north to Kastro and hike through serene pine forest to reach medieval ruins and the quietest beaches. For fun and relaxation, the town of Skiathos has been used to entertain glamorous holidaymakers since the 1960s. From party bars and rustic tavernas, to sunny terraces and seafront strolls, there’s everything you need here for a memorable holiday.
For some, the beaches of Skiathos are a big enough pull, but others have an ulterior motive for visiting. Just next door, the quiet and pretty island of Skopelos is now a destination for ABBA fans, since it became the set of the 2008 film Mamma Mia. Just a short ferry ride from Skiathos town, arrive at Glossa or Skopelos town, where you can then stay a few nights in four star Skopelos Village Hotel. Then visit Mamma Mia cliff where the film’s wedding scene took place. Or grab a much-coveted berth on a themed day cruise.
This beach is popular and rightly so. It’s got soft, golden sand on the warm southern coast, backed by forest and facing shallow, safe waters – perfect for families. The strip is a kilometre long and its whole length is well served by water sports providers, umbrellas and food kiosks.
