About 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 get from here to any of the other resorts, beaches or attractions that you want to visit.

There are no beaches in Skiathos town, Megali Ammos beach is the closest and is just a few minutes walk out of town so if you want a resort with a beach look elsewhere, although what it lacks in sand it makes up for in charm and character and you can always hire a car or get the bus to any number of the gorgeous beaches around the island.

In the town you’ll find a wealth of restaurants, bars and tavernas, the most popular and expensive generally being those right on the harbour front or with the best sea views. The places that are slightly further back and lost in the cobbled streets will be cheaper and most likely offer a bit more authentic charm.

Skiathos town also has a couple of clubs to keep the party animals amongst you going well into the small hours, but for everyone else you’ll probably find yourself enjoying a nice evening meal and watching the world go by with a cocktail, Mythos or a carafe of local wine.

Also in Skiathos town you’ll find the Papadiamantis House Museum and the open air cinema.

We LOVE Skiathos!

My wife and I absolutely loved our holiday to Skiathos, we stayed just outside the capital and walked in every night. It has a fantastic atmosphere, even in September when we went and there's loads to do and some gorgeous restaurants.

We loved it so much we're planning on going back for our 10 year anniversary in a couple of years time.
