And now about the things, for which most people are coming to Skiathos?
People are coming for the beaches in which Skiathos is rich. Being informed that several beaches are worth visiting, we decided not to stay in a hotel by one of them. For us that would mean staying at one and the same beach for the whole vacation and eating in one and the same restaurant.
To make ourselves move we stayed in Skiathos town and took a bus to the beaches. Even this way we didn’t see a lot of them, but I can definitely say that the best ones are those which are not close to the bus stops
The Koukounaries beach is very nice too and, probably, the most popular one, that is why it was getting more and more crowded every day.
It is amazing that many of my hobbies came into my life just by chance. This was the case with horse-back riding as well. Though as a rider I’m next to nothing, I do my best not to miss a chance to have a ride on vacation.
Skiathos riding centre was just the right thing to brighten my beach holyday. It was a nice experience to ride a horse along the coast and through the wooden paths, enjoying spectacular views.
Another advantage of staying in Skiathos town was a wide choice of taverns to spend an evening in. When I say a whole evening, I mean it, because it takes quite a time to eat as much as the Greeks do. I certainly mean sharing one plate for two. The food is so good that you simply cannot refuse it. Having this great variety of places to eat in you simply can’t go wrong, as the Greeks seem to be competing in the art of cooking.
Still, we certainly had our favourites.
