Once the sea warms up by early summer, the beach bars and seaside tavernas on Skiáthos open, welcoming the seasonal visitors from June until September. With parts of Mamma Mia filmed here, Abba sum it up rather well… “My my, how can I resist you?”

Part of the Sporades archipelago, Skiáthos is just 42 square km and in the North West Aegean Sea. Ideal for families and couples of all ages, its appeal lies in around 60 glorious golden beaches.

In Skiáthos town, bars and restaurants spill onto the pavements along the old harbour and Papadiamanti Street, perfect of sampling local Greek specialties – honey, olives and homemade liqueurs – plus fresh fish and seafood. Eating out will be a memorable part of your holiday.

You will find the most popular beaches on the southern side of the island, including the famous bay of Koukounariés. From Skiáthos, you can take day trips to the other Sporades islands, Skopelos and Alonissos.
