Say hello to... Skiathos
Terracotta-topped, whitewashed and completely charming, we opened a treasure chest and found Skiathos inside. It’s no surprise this gold dust Greek isle’s been hailed ‘the Aegean paradise’ and with its teal-tinted waters and luscious leafy landscape, we bet even the Caribbean’s feeling a teeny bit green-eyed.
- Sea lovers – While there’s plenty to see on dry land here, who’s eager to explore the sea? Set sail on a boat trip to Skopelos for almost luminous shades of turquoise waters and emerald headland. You can also discover an incredible underwater world with the scuba diving offering or journey to laid-back Kanapitsa and Platanias, two charming villages.
- Movie lovers – Ever wondered where your fave sun-drenched musical was filmed? That’s right, Mamma Mia was snapped right here on the idyllic isle of Skiathos. Follow in the footsteps of Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan and say: ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!’ to two familiar landmarks – St. Nikolaos Bell Tower and the Old Port!
- Beach lovers- Long, sweeping beaches, lapped by warm, peaceful waters.
