Skiathos lifestyle

Lifestyle

Shopping

Most people come to Skiathos to enjoy the beaches and nightlife with shopping fairly low on the priority

list. Apart from the beach shops and mini-markets of the small resorts like Troulos and Aghia Paraskevi, the major shopping hub is Skiathos Town. With its cosmopolitan flavour, its gently sloping streets promise great shopping - packed as they are with interesting gift shops, jewellers, trendy boutiques and smart art galleries. Look out especially for the colourful local pottery and naturally, timeless Greek souvenirs like leather sandals, lacework, linen and of course, olive oil and ouzo.

Cuisine

If your idea of heaven is a sun-drenched Greek taverna, Skiathos won't disappoint. All around this dazzling island, you'll find atmospheric village and beach tavernas serving quintessential Greek recipes, from delicious meze titbits like taramasolata and dolmades - rice-stuffed vine leaves - to delectable fresh fish and classics like moussaka and souvlaki, all perfectly washed down with pine-scented retsina, cold beer or the fruity local Boutari wine. Don't miss everyone's favourites of flaky spinach and cheese pies, sticky-sweet baklava and make sure you bring home some of Skiathos' locally produced honey.

Nightlife

One of the best ways to spend Skiathos evenings is lingering over dinner at one of its many tavernas, especially when it's served up with idyllic sea views or a terrific sunset. But for livelier nights, Skiathos Town is your place. Here, you'll find an amazing array of popular waterside and backstreet bars perfect for enjoying pre-clubbing drinks. From there, take your pick from the myriad of vibrant nightclubs and music bars or go Greek by taking in a hotel folklore evening or late-night Greek dancing show at a traditional taverna.
