There are two waterfronts in Skiathos Town, the old harbour with caiques and water taxis the ‘new’ with ferries, hydrofoils, sail boats and private yachts.Both harbours are lined with bustling tavernas, bars, chic boutiques and antique shops.
Regular buses operate until the late evening to Koukounaries but if you want to spend more time exploring the nightlife of this vibrant town don’t’ worry as taxis run throughout the night.
The main street of Skiathos Town, Papadiamantis Street is named after the famous writer Alexander Papadiamantis who died in 1911. It is cobbled and traffic free with a variety of shops and tavernas. There are also many quaint little side streets made up of pretty whitewashed houses with intricate wrought iron balconies and hanging baskets trailing gloriously coloured Pelargoniums, so typical of Greece!
The town is built on a hillside, at the top there is a fully restored windmill which has been converted to a delightful restaurant. At night, the views of the town, harbour and the local fishing boats out in the over the Aegean are spectacular.
Although there are no beaches in Skiathos Town a short, fifteen minute walk from the waterfront will take you to the long sandy beach of Megali Ammos with its watersports and tavernas.
