Have ever wonder what is the Top 10 best things to do in Skiathos? If you visiting for the first time or you are a repeater we are sure you will find interesting the flowing article
When my family and I visit a new place we love to know what is the best ten things we must try to see and do, so we will remember the area and have the most beautiful memories.
Let me tell you all about Skiathos, and what you can do so you will fall in love, and you will become another happy repeater calling Skiathos ‘my home.’
Ten basic suggestions we think you will also love
Suggestion 1 ? Book great accommodation!!! ?
Suitable accommodation, you MUST have excellent accommodation!
Don’t go for the cheapest as you will suffer at nights, and if you don’t have a good night sleep then forget it, you will not see and feel the magic Skiathos Island has to offer.
Choose carefully, contact the owners, read the reviews, spend some time there looking for suitable accommodation.
I recommend NOT to choose big hotels unless you like to be surrounded by hundreds of people all day.
Or you would love your Instagram photos to have the location tag of a five ????? luxurious hotel paying all this money you could use for activities and delicious food around Skiathos.
On the other hand, you might love hotels, that’s perfectly fine. In that case, we recommend Kassandra Bay Hotel, close to Skiathos town, owned and run by a family.
Suggestion 2 ? You must see all the beaches!! ?
Skiathos blessed with beaches, a small island with 64 sandy beaches ready to explore and discover your paradise. Souther side has the busiest beaches, north side because of the wind has less active beaches.
We are sure you will find the perfect beach for you.
How to see all the beaches and what we recommend?
You can rent a boat by your selves is safe, and you don’t need a licence. Plan the day get in touch with us, and we will do our best for you to have the best day of your life.
If you don’t want to rent a boat by your selves, you can book a day trip with a driver to Lalaria for example with one of our speed boats. Our customers staying in Skiathos Villa Jasmin get an exclusive discount off course.
You can also take in the morning one of the traditional Kaikis from the old port of Skiathos the start every morning around 9:00 am to different destinations depending on the wind.
