The city of Skiathos is the only built-up area of the island. It is built on the southeastern tip of the island in a windless bay which separates the island of Bourtzi in two.

The large natural port of the modern city is ideal in shape and in location. This has been a basic element in regulating the life on the island both in the old and in the modern times.


Skiathos is famous for its sandy beaches which combine the lush greenery with the harsh natural beauty, Koukounaries, Banana, Lalaria are a few prime examples.

Most of the nightlife on Skiathos is fairly laid back and calm. There are numerous tavernas on the island, especially along the main road in the south from Skiathos town to Koukounaries. If you’re looking for a lively night out, head to Skiathos town for energetic and bustling bars and clubs.

All in all, Skiathos is a rare recreation place. It is full of pine trees, always with fresh, cool air and with a magnificent view.
