Small and perfectly formed, the lush Greek isle of Skiathos is one you can't help falling in love with. You can expect spectacular summer climates on your Skiathos holidays, a resort which boasts natural beauty, soft-sand beaches, history and cuisine that will keep you coming back for more. Located in the northwest Aegean Sea, Skiathos Island is the westernmost among the group of islands in Northern Sporades and crowned as one of the greenest islands in Greece.

Holidays to Skiathos are ideal if you're longing for laid-back vibes, with sand-worshippers having the opportunity to hop between more than 60 gorgeous beaches. Explore the charming and chic resort centre – Skiathos Town - where tavernas and cafes spill out onto the scenic harbour, or head for the azure waters of breath-taking Koukounaries, considered by many as the best beach in the Aegean region. This slice of paradise offers great holiday value and is just waiting to be explored on your Skiathos holidays.

During the summer months (as the tourist season reaches its peak), many international and charter flights arrive directly at the Skiathos Airport. The warmest months to visit Skiathos are June, July and August, but you'll be met by pleasant climates most of the year - except winter. During the summer months, temperatures can reach a balmy 30°C during the day, which dips slightly below 25°C during the evenings. The Skiathos International Airport is located on the eastern side of the island and is just 3km from the resort, plus there are regular connecting flights from Athens to Skiathos - perfect if you want to explore the city before heading to the coast.

Diving into the gorgeous azure waters that surround Skiathos is a popular island pastime and for very good reason. The crystal-clear Aegean water is perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving lovers, and it puts on a good show since it's teeming with marine life.

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.

The 1962-established Attikon outdoor cinema, located on Papadiamandi, is a fab choice for lively audiences looking to unwind with great films and even better cocktails, while Rock and Roll, located in the old port, boasts outdoor seating and plays a Rock and Latin soundtrack ideal for cool nights lounged on cushioned sofas.
