Kastro (Castle)

Kastro (Castle)

Under the old medieval town of Skiathos, at the northernmost point of the island, lies a beautiful beach called Kastro (Castle).

The castle was a refuge for the islanders over five centuries. The continuing and devastating raids of pirates and plunder was the main reason that forced the islanders to leave their ancient city near modern port and migrate to this natural fortress.

The combination of a swim in the crystal clear waters and a visit to the ruins of the castle, it is definitely one of the tours you should not miss during your stay in Skiathos.

In the castle you can get very easily on one of the boats running daily from the port of Skiathos or covering a chunk of dirt road and some distance away.
