Skiathos Island Things to Do: 46 reviews and 59 photos
Kastro, located at the northest tip of the island, is really well worth the effort to visit. It was very difficult to get to until a dirt road was opened recently. Now you can reach it by motorbike or 4 wheel drive car. Following this road will bring you to the turn off for Kastro where you will have to leave your transport and walk for 10 to 15 minutes down to the old town of Kastro. Alternatively, you could take one of the boats that leave the Skiathos fishing harbour each day, land at Kastro beach and climb the path to Kastro. The houses have fallen down but you will still get a feel for what life must have been like between the 14th and 19th century. There are a few churches that still hold services on certain feast days throughout the year. Among them the famous "Christ at the Castle" church.
