Skiathos is a thriving tourist town offering a blend of the cosmopolitan and the traditional. Wander the narrow lanes of the town centre for restaurants and boutiques. Take in a summer concert at the Bourtzi promontory. Stop for a coffee in a cafe, read a book and watch the world go by or enjoy the lively nightlife of the tavernas. Choose from over fifty beaches - tan and relax on the well-known Koukounaries beach or take a boat trip to secluded Lalaria and its famous hollow rock. A full range of sea sports is available. Hire a motorbike and drive out to the Evangelistria Monastery or explore the wild north west corner of the island. Visit the medieval ruins of Kastro. Support the ever-popular Skaithos Dog Shelter and take a dog for its morning stroll. Skiathos has something for everyone, for those who like an active holiday or those who prefer just to unwind on a tranquil beach.
