Flights to Skiathos
A small island in the Aegean Sea, Skiathos (2001
population 6,160) is the westernmost island in the Sporades islands.The island boats 70 golden beaches, one
nudist beach, and connects surrounding islands to the Greek mainland by
ferry.The famous movie Mamma Mia was
partially filmed in Skiathos and on some of the neighboring islands.Skiathos has held the same name since
pre-Hellenistic times.It is believe
that the name was bestowed upon the town by the Pelasgians-- its primary
inhabitants-- who were likely impressed by the shadow of many trees covering
the island ('skia' meaning shadow in Greek).The early people of Skaithos were believed to worship the god of wine
and plays-- Dionysus, whose cult name was "Skianthos".The strategic and fertile position of the
island attracted many invaders, and later the inhabitants of Chalkis colonized
Skiathos-- using the land for vine and olive cultivation.Over its history, Skiathos has gone through
many hands, and was even captured by the famous Turkish pirate Barbarossa in
1538.It was not until 1830 that
Skiathos became a part of the newly independent Greece.
Considered a protected area, Skiathos is a magnificently green island, with
much of it still very forested.With
rolling hills and valleys, the island is very popular despite its size, and can
get very busy in the summer months.Its
beaches, secluded by trees and with crystal clear waters, are the main
attraction for many tourists.Skiathos
makes an enjoyable vacation easy, and is well-organized and prepared for its
tourists.The island offers all kinds of
tourist facilities and accommodations, yet offers an air of authenticity and
tradition.Outside of the tourist areas

has gained a reputation of having a very lively nightlife.From romantic to trendy, from quaint pubs to
fine restaurants, this town had everything to offer its visitors.In Skiathos, there is never a shortage of fun
to be had!
