Region: Sporades islands Area: Skiathos, Zorbathes
Skiathos is located northeast of the island of Evia and east of the peninsula of Pelion.
With an area of 48 km2 and 44 km of coastline, it is almost entirely covered with pine forests and beautiful sandy beaches, shaded by tall pine trees reflecting in the turquoise sea and offering the visitors the moments of pleasure.
Skiathos belongs to the group of Sporades islands, as its neighbors Skopelos and Alonissos, while Skyros, though it belongs to the same group, is more remote and accessible only from Evia, from the port of Kimi.

Skiathos town is a picturesque village built round, overlooking the harbor and the sea.

The tower of the church, which dominates the hill, stands proud among pines and firs.
It is very pleasant to take a walk in the port of Skiathos, full of life with the cosmopolitan atmosphere and white houses with red tile roofs, cafes and restaurants.

In the old neighborhood, beautiful mansions stand facing the sea.

Across the harbor, the island Bourtzi houses a hall where concerts and theatrical plays are taking place. There is also a small cafe where you can relax.

Skiathos is also home to great writers like Alexander Papadiamantis whose house, in the center of town, is transformed in the museum.

At 5 km from the town, hidden in the pine forest, the monastery of Evangelistria, built in 1806, is the only one still inhabited on the island.

You can visit the Monastery and its museum and taste the wine offered by the monks who produce it and sell it themselves.

Kastro, the fortified village perched on a rocky peninsula, is worth a visit for its wonderful view and the small beach below.
