The island of senses

It’s the closest island to mainland Greece, with easy access, interesting history and great culture. Even its name has been the subject for discussion between Greek and Latin historians and geographers. Finally, the most prevalent interpretation of how ancient “Ski-athos” came about until today’s “Skiathos” is the one accepted by the famous Greek writer Alexandros Papadiamantis (who also came from Skiathos island). It therefore connects the name of its place with the shadow, created by the dense extensive forests of the island (place of shadow, shady, katskios, Skiathos).

More than 65 beaches

Skiathos is often referred to as the “Diamond of Aegean” and if we consider that it has more than 65 natural beaches with rich nature and pines which almost touch the water, this title is fair enough!
