Kanapitsa is a beautiful region in the Kalamaki peninsula towards the south of Skiahtos island, it’s found 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, there are a few tavernas scattered about, mainly around the sea front but not much else, don’t go to Kanapitsa and expect a lively resort, you’ll be disappointed. Most people coming here will be package holiday makers staying at one of the 3 decent sized hotels that are in the area. There are other hotels available in Kanapitsa if you prefer to book somewhere smaller.
There are a couple of great sandy beaches close to Kanapitsa, both of which are a the perfect spot to spend those sunny days that are all but guaranteed in the summer months. To find out more about these beaches see Kanapitsa Beach and Tzaneria Beach.
There’s a water taxi that runs from Kanapitsa beach to Skiathos town every hour so if you don’t have a vehicle of your own and don’t fancy going by bus then this is another way to get to the capital with the bonus that you get to take in the Skiathos coast line as you make your way to the main town.
