The busiest member of the Sporades group Skiathos, the most cosmopolitan island in the Northern Sporades, is truly a paradise on earth, with lush pine forests and crystal-clear azure waters.
Despite the rapid growth in tourism here in recent decades, the island is still picturesque and unspoilt and blessed with more than 60 beautifully clean beaches. The most famous is Koukounariés, which has been declared the third most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean.
When you add in its bustling nightlife, it is only natural that the island attracts thousands of young visitors every year… and even more Cypriots!!!
