Marina Skiathos – Great sailing starting point for the Sporades

The Greek island of Skiathos is located in the Aegean Sea and belongs to the Sporades group of islands.
This island is a popular destination being so close to mainland Greece. It has good ferry connections and an airport. The town of Skiathos is a lively, but pleasant and relaxed sort of place. There is a new harbour here, and an anchorage close by.
The main body of the island has a rather compact shape, slightly elongated on the southwest-northeast axis, but it also has lots of inlets, capes and peninsulas, as well as a couple of islets, just as sailors like it.
With the many beaches that surround Skiathos, it’s not difficult to figure out what the main holiday occupation is. Some of the preferred locations are Koukounaries, Banana Beach (nudist beach), Vromolimnos, Platanias, Achladies and Megali Ammos which are all known for their large numbers of visitors.
Skiathos Marina is located in Skiathos town, Greece. It is a private marina close to the commercial port and just 2 km from the airport. In addition to its easy access, it has 350 berths for boats of all types and with maximum length of 65 meters. This port has facilities to meet the basic needs of its customers such as electricity, water and showers.
In the harbour, moor bows/stern-to on the northern part of the quay (the extreme north is reserved for day trip boats and the pontoon in the north for charter boats). It might be difficult to find space, especially at weekends, when the charter fleet is in. Both the shelter and the holding are good. It is advisable to call ahead on VHF channel 77 (Skiathos marina) to ask for a berth.
Water and electricity is now available on the quay here (new 2015). Contact the harbour master for connection. Fuel can be delivered by mini-tanker.
Because of the proximity to the city, boats can access to additional services such as laundry, supermarket, medical facilities and restaurants.
