About Cruising to Skiathos

For people who have been there, done that with Mykonos and Santorini, a stop at the Greek island of Skiathos is a welcome change. The Aegean island, located just 30 miles or so from the mainland, is still touristy; the jet set made it a playground in the 1960s. But once you get to one of the island's many beaches -- there are 60 to 70 along a 25-mile coast -- you'll see why it remains a popular spot for holidays.

Only smaller ships stop in Skiathos, and even then, cruise ships tender to shore. The call is usually billed as a beach day, but if you're avoiding the sun, wander around Skiathos Town for some shopping or get a drink at one of the many tavernas set up near the port. The people-watching is fabulous.

More about Skiathos

Why Cruise to Skiathos?

Pros:

Scenes from the Broadway musical-turned-movie "Mamma Mia!" were filmed in this whitewashed village

Cons:

There isn't much to do aside from going to the beach and walking around town

Bottom Line:

Skiathos offers a nice change of pace from larger Greek Islands like Mykonos and Santorini

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Currency is the euro. ATMS are readily available on Papadiamanti, a pedestrian-only boulevard in Skiathos Town.

Language?

It's Greek, but almost everyone speaks English.


Skiathos Cruise Reviews
A film site for some of the Mama Mia scenes which you will see advertised in town. We choose an excursion offered by our ship (Seabourn Encore) which was a beach and boat tour. This took us to several remote beaches Read More
