Skiathos is a small island in the northwestern Aegean Sea, offering many secluded sandy beaches and private coves. Once fairly remote, its popularity has increased since the 2008 film Mamma Mia was shot here, making it one of the top movie locations to visit on a luxury yacht.
The pretty town of Skiathos surrounds its main port, which is small and not equipped for mooring superyachts; you will also need to consider the ferry traffic here. The best option is to drop anchor in one of the coves and explore the beaches by tender, or have your captain drop you off close to Skiathos town and hire a car or moped to explore its coastline. Don’t miss the ruins of Kastro, overlooking the cliffs of Kastro beach. It is all about the beaches here, so ask the chef to pack up a picnic for you complete with lots of water, sunscreen and of course Champagne.
