Taverna Lyhnari in Skiathos Island - Skiathos
Skiathos, part of the Sporades, is located in the Aegean Sea. It is the greenest island you can imagine and has more than 60 beautiful beaches. Around 5 minutes walk from town we have Megali Ammos, after that it continues with beaches until it ends up at Koukounaries which is located 16 km southwest of Skiathos town. Lalaria beach, famous for its smooth white pebbles, is situated at the northeastern coast and can only be reached by boat.
We recommend that you hire a jeep or a scooter and drive across the island. On the northern side you will find more beautiful beaches and incredible views.
Monastery Evangelistra, surrounded by beautiful countryside, and is located around 20 min. drive north of the town and is well worth a visit. Founded during the Byzantine period. The official Greek flag was first raised here in 1807 and provided great economical and moral support during the Revolution of 1821.
Kounistra monastery is well known because of its icon of the Virgin Mary that was found here in the 17th century. Skiathos with its old town Chora is enjoyable both day and night. Enjoy your stay and your holiday.
