About Agia Paraskevi
Agia Paraskevi, also known as Platanias is similar to Achladies in that it’s a fairly small resort with 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 and around 7.5km from the capital Skiathos Town.
Agia Paraskevi is larger than Achladies and has a handful of tavernas, most of which are attached to the hotels but welcome anyone for food and drink. There’s also a good selection of hotels including some large package holiday style hotels as well as some smaller family run establishments. Also available is a supermarket for supplies and a couple of beaches within walking distance, Agia Paraskevi Beach and Kolios Beach, both of which are well worth spending a few hours relaxing on.
There’s no late night bars or clubs in Agia Paraskevi, it’s more of a place to relax with a quiet evening meal than the sort of place you’d go to for a party. If you want a more lively night out then heading up to Skiathos town is simple. You can get the local bus which runs regularly and takes about 15 minutes. Unlike some of the other resorts in the area there’s no water taxi from Agia Paraskevi.
