Welcome to the Skiathos Travel Blog
Skiathos.guru brings you authentic and honestly written blogs from the Island of Skiathos. We make great effort to give you a truly authentic and emotional picture of the amazing island in the Aegean Sea.
After visiting and living in Skiathos for more than 10 years, I believe I have gathered a very unique sense of what Skiathos has to offer.
My skiathos.guru blog will always stay objective and brutally honest, as we do not have any gains in promoting the one or the other business in Skiathos.
With time we will also include other bloggers whom all have the same love for the Island of Skiathos. Our main goal is to promote the Island in the best way possible so that you can enjoy the true original gems that Skiathos has to offer. Only from high-quality experiences the island and its businesses will strive, we want to promote the best of the best in Skiathos so that we can bring a high standard of tourism for the future. The less fortuned tourist traps of Skiathos will have to learn from the best! The best meaning: Original, Authentic and high standard.
If you like our little blog, please share our posts.
