Despite the rapid growth in recent decades, the island preserves its natural environment and is blessed with more than 60 beautifully clean beaches. The most famous one is Koukounaries, which has been declared the third most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean. When you add to that a bustling nightlife, it is only natural that Skiathos attracts thousands of young visitors every year!

Whether you want to isolate or dance until you drop, Skiathos is a real treat for visitors and especially for young people. The pedestrian street by the Old Harbor is the ultimate entertainment hotspot with buzzing bars and clubs. The party continues in the area of Ammoudiá in big open air clubs! Colorultural events, concerts and art exhibitions are held throughout summer and add a special touch to holidays.

The capital town of Skiathos, the biggest settlement on the island, is a modern resort with excellent tourist facilities. The town is relatively new and assumed to have been built around 1829-30 on the same site as an older town. The most important landmark is the natural harbor, which has determined the destiny of the town for centuries.

Today, it is a popular yacht and sailing boat haven that adds a cosmopolitan flair to the island. A stroll around the paved streets reveals cute white houses with red tiled roofs and colorful gardens.

                           SKIATHOS HARBOR

New Skiathos1





Skiathos Harbor provides excellent shelter. There are several anchoring possibilities. Anchor in the old harbor, which is the most sheltered. This is frequently impossible because of the large number of day-trip boats. Dock stern-to the concrete quay of the new harbor (N of the old harbor). The bottom is sand with good holding.

The newer pontoon or floating dock has essentially been taken over by charter companies. It is unlikely you will find a berth here during weekends (Thursday through Saturday nights) but there is a better chance on other nights.

There is a small area off the eastern end of the pontoon where a few boats can anchor without encroaching on the permanent moorings (to the north), the airport flight path (to the east) or the ferries` maneuvering space in the new harbor (to the south). Anchor off on the eastern side of the bay. Good holding.

Despite the number of tourists at the beach during the day, this is the favorite anchorage in Skiathos for some cruisers. There is a small harbor where, if there is any room you can tie side-to or take a line to the quay. Both places are usually occupied by flotillas.

It is best to anchor off the beach at about 6 m. Avoid the take-off lanes of the multiple water ski operators. You may be asked to move away from the western and central area off the beach and anchor only in the eastern end, outside the buoyed-off swimming area. The bottom is mostly sand and provides good holding, though there are some patches of rock to avoid.

The bay is sheltered from the meltemi (the Etesians) but exposed the southerlies (avoid in the fall). There is a lagoon behind the beach and, if you are lucky enough to be here on a quiet evening in the late spring, you may be treated to the wonderful spectacle of rare Eleanora`s falcons taking dragonflies on the wing over the lagoon.

About a 15 minute walk from the footbridge (turn left at the asphalt road) there are several groceries and restaurants
