Skiathos inland....

Apart from the renown beaches, inland Skiathos offers many very interesting hiking paths throughout the pine woods, along the brooks and on the hills. You will come across many ancient churches, the fabulous Monastery of Evangelistrias and just after reaching the north side, the ancient castle will take your breath away.

Near the island...

On the north side of the group of islands ‘Sporades’ you can visit the nature park, which is a protected area where the Mediterranean monk seal ‘Monachus Monachus’ live.

Music and dancing starts early evening at the fancy beach bars, like ‘Banana’s’ and continues well into dawn.

Numerous small and larger bars are scattered around the island offering moments of fun and pleasure.
