Reviews of Town, Skiathos
christa21 20 Mar 2009Build a summer cinemaThe town is actually the only organized village of Skiathos but the other settlements seem to have only a few amenities for tourists. I guess when tourists go away, these villages are left with a few only inhabitants. The town though seems more populated (at least, in summer!). It has banks, stores, places to eat, everything. I just have two remarks: first, I had an unpleasant experience when the ATM kept my card inside and I had to borrow money from a friend for the weekend (it was Saturday evening when I lost my card and I went back to the bank Monday morning to get it back) and second, I didn't see a summer cinema in Skiathos. I think it would be nice to build an open cinema on the Castle.
iert003 14 Oct 2008Evening entertainment in the townI always wanted to visit Skiathos as it seemed a great island to me from the photos I had seen. Indeed it is a great island with gorgeous beaches. Village life is not so good, except for Skiathos town which is the only descent village to visit. The rest are very traditional and not organized at all. My best activity in Skiathos town was dining!! It had every type of restaurant possible, from the cheap to the expensive. The food in general was excellent and the service very friendly. You have to go to Skiathos town for evening entertainment- eating or drinking, it is just lovely.
