Greece - Skiathos

The most popular island in the Sporades group, Skiathos is a heady mix of pine-covered hills, turquoise waters and a throbbing nightlife. While it gets busy in summer, with groups of partying youngsters on holiday, life on board a yacht can be as tranquil or lively as you want it.

Skiathos – Top yacht charter destination

With over 60 beaches to choose from and numerous coves and capes, you’re guaranteed to find a perfect spot to drop anchor. Lalaria Beach, only accessible by boat, has spectacular white cliffs rising out of the turquoise waters, sea caves and a beautiful sandy beach. For a fun day out, head to Koukounaries Beach, where the beach bars do a roaring trade, the crystal-clear waters are inviting and the people-watching available in all shapes and forms!


Skiathos ­– Things to Do

The crystalline waters make Skiathos an excellent place for snorkelling, swimming and scuba-diving. Diving excursions can be organised through Dolphin Diving Centre. The island is a mountain biker’s dream – particularly the wilder northern side, where one of the numerous trails can be combined with refreshing sea swims. The 18th-century Evangelistria monastery, about five kilometres out of Skiathos Town, is a stunning stone building with commanding views of the sea. Shopping in Skiathos offers some unusual items, including hand-made jewellery and pottery from the Blue House Art Gallery in the main town and contemporary décor from Saita Skiathos.


Skiathos – Gourmet Experience

You’ll be spoilt for choice in Skiathos as the island is packed with restaurants, cafes and bars. Lo&La, at the top of some steep steps, has the most spectacular views of the bay and old harbour. Time your visit with a full moon, tuck into a plate of squid-ink pasta with octopus and lobster, and you’ll remember this moment forever. The Final Step, also overlooking Skiathos bay, serves modern Mediterranean dishes, including crisp salads and fresh seafood such a sesame-encrusted salmon. For tavern lovers, Taverna Selini is a laid-back spot specialising in local seafood dishes.


Skiathos – Nightlife

Skiathos is known for its vibrant nightlife, so you can either party down at one of the many beach clubs or find a quiet spot for a cocktail. The open-air cinema in Skiathos town is a romantic way to spend an evening under the stars, sipping wine while watching a variety of movies. Up for some dancing? Then stylish Jaguar, on the promenade in the old port, is a fantastic place for a cocktail or two and some boogying. Funky Rock n Roll Bar serves a range of excellent cocktails and has sublimely comfortable seating on plump cushions as well as great harbour views.

Insider Tip: If you’re thinking of renting a car to explore the island’s interior, opt for a 4X4 as some of the dirt roads are fairly rugged.
