Skiathos as your wedding destination
Located only 6 miles from the Greek mainland, Skiathos is the smallest (46 square km) and most popular of the Sporades group of islands, set in the Aegean Sea.
The island boasts no less than 70 sandy beaches and if you choose to hire a boat, you will be rewarded by discovering romantic, deserted beaches, even in peak season. Or you may opt for a more traditional kaiki boat from the old port, similar to the one caught by Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia.
Skiathos is one of the only islands in Greece that has never changed its name. It is believed that its name comes from 'skia' the Greek word for shadow, either from the tall pine trees that cover the island, or because it lies in the shadow of the mountains of Pelion, across on the Greek mainland.
Skiathos is covered in pine forests and olive groves making it a lush, green island producing an abundance of olives, walnuts and fruit By venturing inland you will discover traditional villages and much of the west and north coasts of the island are untouched by tourism. By contrast, historic Skiathos town is a lively place where traditional churches and old houses on narrow streets mix with chic restaurants and designer shops. Skiathos was famous in the past for the quality of its shipbuilding and you can still see the shipyards today in the port in Skiathos town.
