The Sporades/Evia region
Skiathos is a beautiful, wooded island, far greener than one would expect a Greek island to be, which has between 60-70 fine sandy beaches, many of which have not become overcrowded and some of which can be virtually empty, even in the height of summer. It's a small island which can be circumnavigated in a couple of hours with a speed-boat, or more leisurely in 4 to 5 hours by local caique or sail. The environment is incredibly varied and can range from hidden, wooded valleys to Monasteries set against a backdrop of barren rock, from shallow beaches with pastures behind to plunging cliffs with beaches nestling below them, only accessible by boat. There are several offshore islands which are worth visiting and where you will find beaches with less people on them than the main island ones.
At the eastern end of the island is Skiathos Town, surrounding a well sheltered harbour which fills in the summer with every type of vessel from 3 metre fishing boats to 11 metre yachts to 40 metre motor yachts. In Skiathos Town you can find everything. It is a thriving, cosmopolitan centre that hums with energy during the summer months contrasting nicely with the lazy beach days. You can have a slow ouzo on the waterfront, dance all night long, shop in the many retail outlets or experience world-class Greek cuisine at one of the island's many restaurants. Whatever you'd like to do, there will be someone catering for it.
There are many dirt roads cutting through the island, and some kind of road-worthy transport is almost essential if you want to get the best from Skiathos. Cars and motorbikes are available for rent all over the island (please see our rental services pages). Places of interest inside the island are the Monastery of Evangalistra, which is very old but well kept, and lays claim to being the first place to raise the present Greek flag during the struggle for freedom from the Turks at the beginning of the previous century. Following on from the monastery is the church of Prophet Illias, with spectacular views out over town & towards the neighbouring island of Skopelos. Here is also a taverna by the shade of huge plane tree where one can sit and enjoy the view with coffee, ouzo or snack. Following the same road will bring you to the road for Kastro where you will have to leave your transport and walk for 30-40 minutes down to the old town. This is a unique place where the villagers used to huddle on a large naturally fortified rock peninsula leaning out into the sea. This was their retreat whenever pirates, Turks, Venetians and other invaders came by. One gets a real sense of how physically hard life must have been then, when times were tough and old bread and olive pips were all there was to eat. As soon as they became free from Turkish domination and foresaw the possibility of a reasonably peaceful future, they moved to the site of modern-day Skiathos Town.
The island has a northeastern to southwestern direction and is about 12 kilometres (7 miles) long and 6 kilometres (4 miles) wide on average. The coastline is indented with inlets, capes and peninsulas. The southeast and southwest parts have gentler slopes and that is where most settlements and facilities are located. The terrain is more rugged on the north coast, with the highest peak at 433 m (1,421 feet) on mount Karafiltzanaka (39.1904°N 23.4685°E).
The main town is Skiathos (pop. 4,988 in 2001) and along with the airport are located to the northeast next to a lagoon. Other settlements are ?anemos , Kalyvia , Troulos (159), and Koukounaries .
In Ancient times, the island played a minor role during the Persian Wars. In 480 BC, the fleet of the Persian King Xerxes was hit by a storm and was badly damaged on the rocks of the Skiathos coast. Following this the Greek fleet blockaded the adjacent seas to prevent the Persians from invading the mainland and supplying provisions to the army facing the 300 Spartans defending the pass at Thermopylae. The Persian fleet was defeated there at Artemisium and finally destroyed at the Battle of Salamis a year later. Skiathos remained in the Delian League until it lost its independence. The city was destroyed by Philip V of Macedon in 200 BC.
In 1207 the Gyzi brothers captured the island and built the Bourtzi, a small Venetian-styled fortress similar to the Bourtzi in Nafplio, on an islet just out of Skiathos Town, to protect the capital from the pirates. But the Bourtzi was ineffective in protecting the population and in the mid-14th century the inhabitants moved the capital from the ancient site that lay where modern Skiathos Town is to Kastro (the Greek word for castle), located on a high rock, overlooking a steep cliff above the sea at the northernmost part of the island.
In 1704 monks from Athos built the Evangelistria monastery which played a part on the Greek War of Independence as a hide-out for Greek rebels. The first flag of Greece was created and hoisted in the Evangelistria monastery in Skiathos in 1807. Several prominent military leaders (including Theodoros Kolokotronis and Andreas Miaoulis) had gathered there for consultation concerning an uprising, and they were sworn to this flag by the local bishop.
After the War of Independence and demise of piracy in the Aegean, Kastro became less important as a strategic location. In 1830s, the island's capital was moved to the original site — where it still remains. Today, ruins of Kastro are one of tourist attractions. During the 19th century Skiathos became an important shipbuilding centre in the Aegean due to the abundance of pine forests on the island. The pine woods of the island were then almost obliterated. This was brought to a halt though, due to the emergence of steamboats. A small shipwright remains north of Skiathos Town, which still builds traditional Greek caiques.
The film Mamma Mia was partially filmed on Skiathos and nearby island Skopelos. This has increased its popularity as a tourist destination since the release of the successful movie.
Getting Around Skiathos
Skiathos offers tourists a variety of transport options – from motorbike and car rentals to buses and taxis. Many tourists opt to use the local bus service, which is both economical and efficient. It travels the full length of the southern coastal road from Koukounaries, terminating in Skiathos Town. Buses run at 15 to 20 minute intervals in the summer, and can often be crowded (particularly between 4:00pm – 7:00pm) coming back in to town. Here's a run down of all the available bus stops from the tow to Koukounaries.Cultural Events
At the “Bourtzi”, throughout the summer, the local council organises a series of cultural events. The Boutzi is the small, wooded peninsular situated between the old harbour and the new ferry harbour. On it is a magnificent old stone building (which used to be the school), an open-air theatre and a traditional Greek kafenion (coffee shop). In the Bourtzi building, exhibitions are held of the work of Greek artists and photographers. Other facets of Greek culture, such as ancient mosaics, are also shown. The open-air theatre, which is a marvelous place to sit on a warm summers night, hosts performances ranging from ballet and concerts through theatre and films to traditional Greek “shadow-theatre”. It is well worth a visit here – it is not necessary to understand the Greek language to enjoy most of these events, and the atmosphere is quite special. Live music is performed at the traditional cafe on many evenings throughout the summer, and the sea and lights of Skiathos harbour make a wonderful backdrop to these performances. Tickets for many of these events can be obtained from the tourist information booth situated close to the Bourtzi, behind the harbour authorities office.
