There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Agios Ioannis Beach, don't miss a visit to Saint Riginos Monastery, explore the different monuments and memorials at Sedoukia Pirate Graves, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastery of Evangelistria.

Boasting some of Greece's finest beaches, Skiathos swells with vacationers from colder European countries at the height of the tourist season.
Get a sense of the local culture at Kastro Ke Medieval Ekklisia and The Blue House Art Gallery. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Megali Ammos Beach and Maratha Beach. There's still lots to do: tour the water at your own pace with Sail the Day - Skiathos Sailing Trips, kick back and relax at Troulos Beach, contemplate the long history of The Papadiamandis House, and make a trip to monastero di Panagia Evangelistria.
