Whether you visit for a family holiday, a romantic break or a fun-filled escape with friends, there’s plenty to do on holidays in Skiathos.

  • Only accessible by boat, Lalaria Beach is a remote stretch of dramatic rocks, sea caves and grottoes. Round, white pebbles line the beach, reflecting with aquamarine beauty on the clear waters.
