A perfect beach for young and old. There is a great selection of water sports on the main beach too, such as water skiing, jet ski’s, para gliding, canoes, pedaloes and of course banana boats and ringo’s. For those wanting peace during the day, there is a large selection of coves within a short distance of the town centre where you can relax and chill out too.

Night-life in Skiathos Town is so varied and exciting, the main harbour area is the bustling part of town where you can find a huge selection of bars, cocktails bars, pubs and of course restaurants and tavernas, this is where you will also find a couple of nightclubs offering dancing until the early hours. For a more relaxed pace, there are many other restaurants and cafés, bars dotted throughout the town, down cobbled streets and are more traditional in style, sample local dishes such as souvlaki or maybe one of the lovely fresh fish often caught locally that day.
