Pack a panoramic camera, because Skiathos holidays are a feast for the eyes. Long, sweeping beaches, lapped by warm, peaceful waters, pine-clad hills cascading in wild flowers, tiny traditional tavernas nestling in hideaway coves, pretty cliff-top villages and stupendously beautiful sunsets. A Skiathos holiday offers a traditional, photo-perfect view of Greece. We at Coop Travel have bargain holidays to Skiathos that show off this sparkling jewel of the Aegean in the very best light.
Skiathos has an amazing variety of resorts for its size. The most popular island in the Sporades, it is only a fraction the size of Corfu, with a cap on high-rise developments. The majority of Skiathos package holidays are taken on the south coast, between Koukounaries and Skiathos Town. Golden stretches of sand with easy accessibility, and the success of the movie Mama Mia! (much of which was filmed here) has led to a rapid growth of purpose-built resorts and tourist developments, sporting clubs, bars and sports facilities. However, among them are quiet coves and traditional villages where you can still enjoy a quiet Ouzo. In the north of the island there are some superb sandy beaches totally free of tourist development, and easily reached by bus, car or water taxi.
Late deals in Skiathos Town land you at a scenic bay on the Bourtzi peninsula, overlooked by lush hills peppered with whitewashed cottages and holiday villas. The modern port to the east is home to chic restaurants, shops, bars and nightclubs, while the steep lanes of the old town offer a picturesque old working harbour, with traditional tavernas, craft shops and cafes. The remains of medieval Bourtzi fortress, the caverns of Lalaria beach, and the abandoned mediaeval ruins of Kastro are just a stroll away.
Cheap Skiathos holidays mean the sands and tavernas of Achladies for some, and boat trips to Skopelos for others, or how about late deals to Skiathos’ Kolio Beach resort? We at Coop Travel offer last minute Skiathos holidays to these, and many other destinations.
