Our favourite Holiday Haunt
Skiathos, what can one say? Well you could say it was crowded, commercialised, and full of Brits and it might be true in high season, but take a little trouble to escape from the usual tourist traps of Koukounaries, Troulos et al (great beaches though they may be) and you will be richly rewarded by discovering another aspect to this amazing little island.
It’s said that there are over sixty beaches on this island which is only about twelve miles from one end of its main road to the other, but bring some walking boots, hire a jeep or a off-road motorbike (but only if you are a competent and experienced rider) and take to the dirt roads and tracks which criss-cross this beautiful island, and to will be find breathtaking scenery, hidden valleys, tiny churches and secluded beaches tucked away in the most surprising of places.
