I have been to Greece five times and Skiathos is definitely my favorite island! It is a small and lovely island, with lots of beautiful beaches. I went with my boyfriend in June 2006 and we stayed at Hotel Bourtzi in Skiathos town. It was surprisingly calm and quiet, and it had a little pool. Probably one of the best hotels in Greece I've stayed in. Two thumbs up! The location was perfect as it was in the middle of everything; shopping, restaurants, bars and life, and walking distance to Megali Ammos beach.
The best thing about Skiathos has to be the beaches. They are lovely and there are so many! We got to see most of them on our cruise around the island, but we only managed to visit a few of them. Koukounaries and Banana Beach were both great, but I can tell they get extremely busy at the peak of the season. Lalaria is pretty with its white pepple stone beach and the turquoise water. I definitely recommend the cruises, so you get to see Lalaria and other beaches that can only be reached by boat.
I was surprised by the quality of the food and restaurants on the island and we enjoyed some mouthwatering meals and drinks during our stay. I definitely recommend Maria's Pizza, Windmill restaurant, Don Quiojote Tapas Restaurant and Main Street Cafe!
- Pros:Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, lovely food, wonderful island and nature
There is a dogshelter at a top of a hill in Skiathos. It is run by an English woman. You can find small collection boxes... more travel advice
The hotel was located in a quite side street off the main street in Skiathos town. Perfect location! Short walking... more travel advice
