Along with lashings of old-world charm, holidays to Skiathos Town deliver inviting beaches, classic Greek eats and daytrips aplenty.
Skiathos Town, located on the North Aegean
island of Skiathos, is the quintessential Greek
holiday spot everyone dreams of. With its old-style cobbled streets and scenic port, it's easy to understand the appeal. Spend a lazy afternoon on the sand-and-shingle shoreline, followed by a meal of freshly caught seafood served at an authentic taverna.
Disco balls and ouzo
Skiathos Town may look a little sleepy during the day, but it sure knows how to dial things up at night. Whether you're up for a disco workout, a sip of ouzo or a glass of red wine from the island's small crop vineyards, you'll find a lively nightlife scene along the seafront strip – from modern bars to family-run inns.
Tavernas – small restaurants – are an integral part of Greek life. At places at the old port in Skiathos Town, you'll find meaty dishes like moussaka – an eggplant or potato-based wonder that's layered with spiced lamb and bechamel – along with locally grown olives and figs. End your meal with a serving of yoghurt topped with wild honey.
