Chora as seen from the mountain.
Chora in Greek means the capital of an island, a market village or a small town, usually the main port of the island. It is also usual for this capital to have the same name with the island. Here is Skiathos village or Chora of Skiathos island as seen from the mountain, on the way to Kastro.
- Hiking and Walking
Beach: Megali Ammos
Megali Ammos is situated a bit outside the city in the street leading to Koukounaries. You can reach this beach on foot, by car or by bus.
Beach: Vromolimnos Beach
On the western tip of the cape of Kalamaki and in front of a dry swamp, there is this beautiful beach with calm, clear waters and marvellous fine sand.
Skiathos town II
A typical backstreet in Skiathos town. To think the Rough Guide calles it commercialised and 'attractive only from a distance'!
Koukounaries beach III
Behind the hills, to the left of the photo is the west coast of the island and the beaches of Aghia Eleni and Krassas.
