Scoot on down the road
where you can find the restaurants, bars, shops, even more beaches, and people. This is the busiest part of Skiathos, and a far cry from the quiet nights of Vromolimnos, but for dancing and music it is the best place to be. Mamma Mia! was partly filmed in this area, and a short explore will bring you to some recognisable locations. It’s worth a look to see what you can spot, although there are no official guided tours.
A cyclist's dream
Vromolimnos (and Skiathos in general) is a Mecca for those who love to ride their bikes. If that sounds like you, then you won’t want to miss out on hiring a bike and taking the hill trail that starts at Troulous. This will take you to Skiathos’ national park which you can also ride through. It really is beautiful.
Run around the ruins
Kastro was once a mighty fortress, there to defend a 16th-century Skiathos from the scourge of pirates that constantly bombarded its shores. By 1830 when the pirates where no longer a threat, the fortress fell into ruin, and it is these ruins that you can explore today.
Nearest Airport to Vromolimnos
Skiathos Airport – 5 miles
With its shorter-than-usual runway, some head to Skiathos Airport to watch the planes take off and land just metres above their heads. Taxis and transfers are easily available and make holidaying on Skiathos easy.
