Papadiamantis Museum In the capital is the author's own 140 year old house, which he required as a museum housing his possessions.

Panagia Elkonistra This small monastery is 8km from town named after The Blessed Icon Painter who probably didn't mind a drink or two as there is a grape arbor and taverna inside the walls (Sorry, no big screen sport which had not been invented in his time). On November 21st there is a festival in his honour.

Skotini, Glazia and Halkini Grottos Spectacular grottos are east of Lalaria are well worth the trip. Skotini is very impressive with a small opening into the 20-foot cave with the many sandy coves to explore, get a boat and just do it.

Anemos Walk up the stairs past the Rock 'n Roll Cafe (the one with cushions) and keep going, ask for Anemos, the restaurant with a view. They will make a fuss of you and it's an excellent experience. We had the red snapper *mmmwah*

Skiathos Beaches

Banana Beach Three distinctive beaches in one and mostly nude, but with tavernas and beach bars, crystal clear water to let your bits hang out. Always lots of fun to be had at this holiday paradise.

Koukounaries The best-known beach on the island curves gently round hugged by a fragrant pine forest to provide natural shade. Beautiful warm deep blue water makes for lovely swimming. One can walk in the protected forest to find abundant birdlife and plants.

Mandraki Bay Located on the North West coast are 3 beautiful bays, quiet and isolated. So maybe bring your own food and drink. The coves are great for swimming and snorkelling. Delightful to explore for a day.

Skiathos Restaurants and Bars

Skiathos Restaurants

Kabourelia Ouzeri This lovely taverna is to be found on the western part of the harbour. If you are looking for authentic local food then this is right up your alley. Sea views and reasonable prices are the cherry on top.

Chris, Jan & Deborah's Daskallo Pub Wonder how long they took to think up the name! Anyway it's along Papadiamantis get to the kiosk and turn right. Homesick English people will love the interior, food and regular quizzes.

The Windmill Restaurant Time to put on your glad rags and head on down to this special dining experience. It's a steep climb to the old converted windmill. Exotic and very different menu, but delicious.

Skiathos Bars & Clubs

Blue Chips Club Popular with the locals and unusual ocean themed interior, with a good selection of beverages you will lap up the vibe here.

Scorpion Club In the centre of the nightlife area off Papadiamantis this place will be easy to find just follow the headbanging techno drums, but don't even think of coming here till 1am.

Admiral Benbow Inn Cosy bar on Polyechniou, owned and operated by Mick and Elaine from Leeds who like to share their love of R&B and Rock and Roll with the other happy customers. Good atmosphere and selection of drinks makes this a popular night time destination.
