Holidays to Skiathos, the greenest beauty of Greece
Stretch out on Kanapitsa Beach
This is a stunning Blue Flag stretch of beach located in Kolios that is home to cushion-soft sands and crystal clear and calm waters. It's the perfect place to catch some sun and relax with a good book. There are also great opportunities to satisfy your pallet with seafood eateries as great cafes surround the area. There's also the opportunity to hire pedalos to explore the coves dotted around the coast.
Tackle one of the island’s many beautiful walking trails
Skiathos is perfect for avid walkers as it's prime walking territory. Filled with rolling hills, storybook forests and beautiful green river valleys, there is no shortage of trails to take. Lots of the marked pathways throughout the island weave past historical tourist sights such as the Evangelistria monastery. It's not difficult to get lost; let yourself escape and keep an eye out for all the red and white signs dotted throughout the various trials.
Wine and dine yourself in the Old Town
The Old Town of Skiathos is the picture perfect Greece you see on postcards. Imagine a maze of alleyways, whitewashed houses and balconies filled with local flowers and beauty. This is real life in the Old Town and you will be overwhelmed by the romance that fills the air. Stroll around the cobbled roads and head to an authentic tavern to indulge in local favourites such as suckling pig or pan-fried prawns. Finish your evening with some ouzo - the national drink of Greece.
Hike to the Evangelistria Monastery
The hike to this 18th-century monastery is a one-hour round-trip and it's not to be missed. The monastery itself is a piece of modern Greek history, and interestingly the Greek flag that is currently here was first raised here by nationalist revolutionaries. This is a working monastery that has a museum where you can indulge in more Greek history.
