Skiathos Town

Skiathos Town

The island's capital and its port is the town of Skiathos, which stretches from the beach to the hills. It is the main place of residence for the locals and economical, cultural and administrative center of Skiathos.

The port is divided into two by the beautiful little peninsula Bourtzi. The city is vibrant all summer long and offers every visitor a variety of options in dining, entertainment, accommodation and anything else needed.

Skiathos town is ideal for walks in its narrow alleys, as well as for shopping and its intense nightlife. It is also the main starting point for most boat day trips around the island since they perform daily routes.

Various cultural events take place during the sumer months. The most famous of them is "Dream of the sea" (from the homonymous novel of Papadiamantis) in July and August. On August 18th the island is honoring the memory of Agios Floros on the small island Tsougria.

Notable events are also held in early September called "Days Violin", in memory of the sinking of the heroic submarine "Katsonis" during the second World War.
