The capital city of Skiathos curves around a windless bay and is surrounded by lush greenery, creating an idyllic setting for a sun-soaked escape. Holidays to Skiathos Town come with the choice of the traditional village centre to the west and the modern eastern section of the resort. Sprawling over a pair of hills, the town is divided by the picturesque Bourtzi peninsula, which is home to the ruins of a medieval fortress.
Those looking to immerse themselves in traditional Greek culture will fall in love with the charming cobbled lanes of old Skiathos town, where whitewashed tavernas and bougainvillea cascades line the historic fishing harbour. Here you can watch local fishermen haul in their daily catch, with traditional tavernas waiting to welcome you with a refreshing beer or glass of ouzo.
As Skiathos Town spread out to the east, the streets become filled with cosmopolitan boutiques and restaurants. A stretch of golden beach is ideal for soaking up the Mediterranean sun, whilst sheltered quayside cafes in the traffic-free centre are great for watching the world go by. With two resorts for the price of one, you can book a Skiathos Town holiday now and wait until you arrive to tailor your own unique Greek island adventure.
