Paradise island of relaxation
The Skiathos is small island located in the Northern Sporades archipelago. It’s ideal for people who are looking for beautiful beaches, clear water and lively nightlife. Boat charter from there creates many possibilities to spend time, like visiting nearby islands – Alonissos and Skopelos. Skiathos is known for its magnificent pine forests and loads of beaches – there are more than 60 of them! Fans of beaching can choose between calm and lively ones. However, in order to get to these very calm and hidden little lagoons there is only one way – by the sea. That’s why it is great to charter a motorboat there! It makes getting to places tourists cannot reach possible. The most popular beach on Skiathos is Koukounaries, which is called “cone-y”. This name was given because of its surrounding – amazing and beautifully scented pine forest. It is the place worth visiting even just for the pine forest scent.
The pearl of Greece
In the town called the same as the island you can find very well maintained marina where a your motorboat journey will start. Nearby churches, monasteries and local clock tower are worth visiting. The view of the town from the clock tower is absolutely amazing. As you go around Skiathos by the sea you can admire the incredible landform and flora of the island. The town called Agia Paraskevi is popular but quiet tourist resort where you can find phenomenal beach and multiple restaurants serving tasty, traditional greek cuisine. However, to get the best experience of greek culture and tradition we recommend visiting in Achladies – the town known for the best greek food. Fun fact about Skiathos is that “Mamma Mia!” movie was shot there and on nearby island Skopelos.
