Skiathos Resorts

The Skiathos resort guide below is designed to give you an idea of the main destinations on the island of Skiathos and what their good and bad points are. If you know where you want to go then click the heading for that resort to be taken to the full description, if not use the filters to find the resort that suits your needs best.

The map above is there to help you to decide where to stay, just remember the best night life is generally found in Skiathos Town but the most popular beaches are down in the south west of the island so you may need to decide which is most important to be close to. Luckily as Skiathos is such a small island and so easy to get around it shouldn’t matter where you stay.

Tourist resorts in Skiathos

Skiathos town is the main tourist hot spot on the island, it has the majority of the night life including some lovely bars and even a couple of clubs.

The other resorts on the island are much more laid back with a limited number of tavernas and restaurants to keep you busy in the evenings and stunning beaches for the days.

Family resorts in Skiathos

Most of the resorts in Skiathos are based around the beaches on the south coast and as these are generally sandy and very good for kids it means you can pretty much stay where you like and the kids will enjoy themselves on the beach.

Traditional Skiathos resorts

As most of the resorts on Skiathos are purpose built for tourists with lots of hotels around one of the fabulous beaches there aren’t really traditional Greek villages to visit. Skiathos Town is probably the only truly Greek town on the island and you’ll love getting lost in the cobbled streets of the islands capital.

Skiathos resorts for couples

Any of the islands beach resorts would also work for couples, as would Skiathos town, so depending on if you’d rather be near the beach or near the night life will help you decide where to stay. Don’t worry though, Skiathos is a small island so you can easily go from one end to the other to see the other resorts and beaches whilst you are there. Skiathos is highly recommended for couples.

Achladies isn't really a village as such, it's more just a collection of hotels and apartments with a couple of beach side tavernas, a couple of supermarkets, a bar and a bakery. It's not far from Skiathos town which you can reach easily by water taxi or bus.

Agia Paraskevi

Agia Paraskevi, also known as Platanias is similar to Achladies in that it’s a fairly small resort with a good selection of hotels, a picturesque bay and a lovely beach. It’s located towards the south of Skiathos island at bus stop 16, just west of the kalamaki peninsular.


Kanapitsa is a beautiful peninsula towards the south of Skiahtos down at bus stop 12. It's around 6km from the capital Skiathos Town which is a short 10-15 minute drive. Kanapitsa has a quiet and relaxed feel with a few tavernas scattered about.


Kolios is on the south of Skiathos island, just west of the Kalamaki peninsula and around 6.5km to the capital Skiathos Town. Kolios has a lovely beach, a couple of shops and tavernas as well as a handful of hotels so you’ve got everything you need for a relaxed stay,


The village of Koukounaries is much smaller than you'd expect being connected to such a popular beach, it's basically a single main road that has a number of restaurants, supermarkets and other tourist facilities dotted along it, there's not much nightlife though.

Megali Ammos

Megali Ammos is within walking distance of the islands capital Skiathos Town and the name literally means "big beach" so it's easy to see why it's a popular place to stay. The beach is about a kilometre long, it's narrow and has shingle in places and soft sand in others.

Skiathos Town

Skiathos Town or Chora is the main harbour for the island and capital of Skiathos. This will be the best place to stay for a lot of people travelling to Skiathos. It offers plenty of bars and restaurants for the evenings and is on the main road so it’s easy to travel to and from.


Troulos is a laid-back and relatively quiet resort on the southern end of Skiathos. It’s based around an impressive bay and has a number of quality beaches to choose from. There's no village centre but there are a few shops, restaurants and bars spread out in the area.


Vassilias is a relaxed resort tucked into the Skiathos hillside, it's part way between Skiathos Town and the Kalamaki peninsula so getting about is easy. Vassilias is at bus stop 8 so you can catch the bus north to the capital or south to the other resorts and beaches.
