Getting Around

The island is fairly easy to get around, with a range of transport options available. If you wish to explore the less developed northern side of the island, hiring a car is recommended. There is an abundance of taxis, but agree a fare before you set off. There are also buses that can get you from A to B cheaply as well as traditional Greek ‘kaiki’ boats and water taxis.

Agia Eleni


Have your camera to hand and head to the west coast of the island to enjoy the best sunsets. Pull up a chair at a local taverna and watch the orange sun melt into the horizon. Agia Eleni, situated along the west coast, boasts one of the most romantic sunsets on the Aegean coast. Alternatively, take a sunset cruise from one of the many ports and enjoy the view from on deck - preferably with a cocktail in hand.

Explore Skopelos


The best way to fully appreciate Skiathos’ rugged and natural coastline is from the sea, so jump on board one of the island’s boat trips for a front row seat. Drop anchor during your trip for an idyllic dip in the azure waters, where you're sure to stumble upon hidden coves and deserted golden beaches en-route to neighbouring Skopelos.
