Things to do in Skiathos
If you’re wondering what to do in Skiathos then you’re in the right place. This guide was created to give holiday makers a list of sights in Skiathos that are worth visiting whilst on the island.
Historical sites in Skiathos
Unlike some of the other Greek islands, Skiathos doesn’t have that many historical sites. There’s Kasto up in the north that was an ancient settlement dating back over 800 years that was completely abandoned as late as the 1830s.
Other than that there’s the very limited remains of the castle that once stood on Bourtzi island but there’s not much to see there really.
Religious sites in Skiathos
Again, as Skiathos is a small island there isn’t the huge amount of churches that you find on some of the other islands. There is however a beautiful church set in an idyllic location, offering incredible views. Check out The Monastery of Evangelistria below for more info. There are also a number of smaller churches around the island
Other attractions in Skiathos
Skiathos was home to Alexandros Papadiamantis, a Greek writer and poet and his house is now a museum that you can visit in the capital.
There’s an open air cinema, also in the capital and it shows Mamma Mia regularly throughout the summer with the crowd enjoying a sing along and a few drinks at the same time as watching the film.
