No two are the same and their signature cocktails are not to be missed! Visit cult favorite The Blind Dog bar for excellent live music on ‘till late. A truly Skiathos night out!

Days By The Beach

Skiathos is known across Greece for its unique sandy beaches which meet evergreen trees on one side and clear turquoise sea on the other. Don’t miss some of the most famous beaches on the island! These include Koukounaries, with its golden sands and the wildlife area of Strofilia next door, where you can spot rare birds and animals of all kinds.

Or, venture to Lalaria beach, which is accessed by boat. Limestone cliffs welcome you to this beach and protect you from any wind as you walk down the little pebbles which lead you to the particularly clean and beautiful waters of the area. Right next to this beach there are some sea caves for you to explore.
