The Sporades/Evia region
Skiathos is only 46 sq km, but many people choose to return for their holidays year after year for the simple fact that it has amongst the best beaches of the Greek islands, good quality tavernas, but most of all because it is still relatively unspoilt.
It is a lush, green island with over 60 beaches and depending on where you stay, you can have a quiet, relaxing holiday or a more active one enjoying water sports, tennis, horse riding and enjoying the night-life. The locals mainly live off tourism and agriculture. They grow olives, fruit and walnuts and there is both local honey and wine. Many of the islanders leave the island in the winter and work on the mainland.
Skiathos is a popular summer resort for British and Scandinavian holidaymakers. The Greeks also love Skiathos, and many wealthy Athenians have second homes here.
The Skiathos / Kolios area
Even though Skiathos is such a small island, there are quite a few things to see. In Skiathos town you can discover the tiny winding streets, boutiques and souvenir shops.
There is also the Bourtzi, a tiny peninsula in the harbour which used to be a Venetian citadel, with remains of the 13 century wall and canons. Here, you can enjoy concerts, art exhibitions and puppet shows for children in the open air theatre.
The Evangelistra monastery is situated a 20 minute drive outside the town. It has some amazing surroundings and is open for the public. Children love the collection of cats, birds and dogs that live here. Evangelistra also has a small museum with various objects from its history. There is also an excellent shop here where you can buy icons, crucifixes, plates, T-shirts and even wine. There is a small, white bus that goes between the monastery and town several times a day.
You can also visit the medieval town of Kastro, either by going on one of the boat trips around the island, or driving almost all the way and then walking. Don't miss the Church of Christ and the old houses.
Kolios itself is set overlooking a beautiful bay. There is a taverna on the beach and near to the villa is Infinity Blue, a well known restaurant on the island which has attracted the likes of Pierce Brosnan and Roman Abramovich (as well as other rather less wealthy Greek and English families!).
How to get there

15 minute drive from Skiathos airport. Direct flights from most European countries from May to end of October (search on travelsupermarket.com or travelrepublic.com) or 20 minute connecting flight from Athens with Olympic Airlines.
Car hire is recommended to explore the North of the island but is by no means essential. We recommend Victoria Car Rental.
There is a regular air conditioned bus service running from Skiathos town to Koukounaries beach. Bus stop number 15 is 2 minutes walk from the villa.
