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 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 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 !

Skiathos Town review

"cosmopolitain"

89%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

A very cosmopolitan town with nationalities from all over the world congregating on the beautiful resort. The harbour has luxury yachts stretched most of its length and we are talking luxury. opposite the harbour front is a line of restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes. Then there is the many small shops and cafes etc. set behind these with many winding little back ally's. The main street stretches from the front of the harbour back in land and is very busy most of the time. It was good to sit here on a night in a bar and watch the world go by. There are a couple of bars for the English off the main street e.g. Bob's Bar but we didn't venture. A must see is the end of the runway to watch the planes land and take off ( what a laugh).

Katsarou review

"Katsarou is not a 'resort' but tiny area"

100%
of reviewers would recommend this
resort to a friend

Open quote

I have reviewed the Island of Skiathos rather than Katsarou which is a small area the hotel sits in. You will see from my pictures how beautiful Skaithos is and the island of Skopelos is only a short ferry rise away. There are numerous boat trips available or you can take the small taxi to Tsgouria Island for the day. Skiathos has numerous beaches to visit. Troulos and Koukinaries are really good for families with sandy and safe beaches.

A bus runs from Skiathos Town the length of the island stopping off at all the beaches. It is cheap and runs throughout the day and evening.

Katsarou is halfway up a mountain, but it is a jumping off point to go and see the various monasteries that are up there in the mountains, also it leadsyou to various beaches from the hotel, Kechria is one and Kastro to name a couple, also you will find a couple of excellent restaurants up here in the hills, Anastasias is the one you must try for what I believe is some of the best food on the island, go for the Shrimp Saganaki followed by either the fish or the Kleftiko andyou will not be disappointed I can assure you,
