Brochure Guide


Having paid several visits to the port area of Skiathos during onward bound trips,I have found Skiathos to be a very lively and interesting port. Move away a short distance from the buzz of the harbour front and find some tiny cobbled back streets leading to an ancient clock tower, some tiny tucked away restaurants and a shady walk up to a bar with a view. There are plenty of places to relax and eat or drink or just watch the yachts along the waters edge.

Katsarou is up in the hills of the main road, so is nice and quiet, often with a gentle breeze. Just a few hotels and restaurants and some nice walks.

Lots of places to see and go and experience. If you are looking for clubbing, then this is not the place for you but if you wish to experience a true Greek island, then look no further.

Katsarou isn't too far from Skiathos town which has everything you need. It is a steep hill up to the hotel but it's well worth the views over the mountains.

Katsarou review

Katsarou is not far from beaches within walking distance about 30 to 40 mins depending on your walking ability or the hotel bus will drop you near a beach on the way to town and you can make arrangements for him to pick you up when you come back. There are many walks in the area with many lovely views, some people hire cars or quad bikes to get around to see more of the Island

This is a pretty resort with 2 harbours. There are boat trips to do and lots of fab beaches to visit but not a massive amount to see if you like going off on day trips. The town is really nice and perfect for evenings eating and shopping.

We have been going to Skiathos for 13 years now and we do one heck of a lot of walking - there's not a square foot we haven't discovered (we think!). Katsarou is a great starting point for walks as it is offers so many options to choose from.

Katsarou review

"Calm and beautiful"

100%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

Katsarou is in the country overlooking the sea and about 3 kilometers from the airport and main town. It is not a resort and could probably be called a residential area which means no noisy mopeds driving past at all hours (impossible to avoid in the town). The Paradise offers a bus service (free !) six times a day to go up and down to 'the capital', Skiathos Town and its outskirts. Walks start from the entrance to the hotel through the hills and to some beaches. Start off early in the morning to make the most of the day though !
