Accommodation options for your holiday in Skiathos
The countryside of Skiathos is dotted with monasteries. Have a look at the Evangelistria Monastery, about five kilometres from the city of Skiathos. The monastery is about three hundred years old and was founded by two monks: Nifon from Chios and local monk Gregorios Hatzistamatis.
The monastery was an important refuge for soldiers in support of the Greek Revolution. It currently houses a small museum of ecclesiastical garments and artefacts, alongside folk curiosities. Don't miss the Byzantine icons and gleaming silver crosses.
Beaches and island hopping
Visit the beach of Koukounaries, the largest and most popular on the island. Ringed with pine forest, it offers plenty of watersports. Agia Paraskevi is also popular with watersport fans – it has a range of kayaks, stand up paddleboards, and windsurfers. Meanwhile, Kanapitsa's especially fine sand makes it popular with those who prefer to lounge, although there are also watersports facilities here.
Why not take a day trip to one of the other islands? Sporades's capital of Skyros is filled with winding cobbled streets and churches, while Pelion is known for its traditional villages.
Flower festivals of a different kind
Katsonia Festival, celebrated every September, honours othe submarine by the same name that sank near Kastro in 1943. The submarine was attempting to intercept German troops but was sunk by a German submarine.
Some of the crew managed to swim for nine hours to reach the island's shores and hid here until they could rejoin the Greek Naval fleet. Locals celebrate with a Mass and by throwing flowers into the sea to commemorate the 32 who lost their lives and honour the brave soldiers who escaped and returned to duty.
