Skiathos sept 28 to oct 5.

What should we expect in terms of weather? Does anyone have restaurants to recomend for us. We have two children age 4 and 6. Any activities to recomend, playgrounds...? Our last stay was in 1999. We sort of hope Skiathos is still the same, as we loved being there.

Hi,

Never been that time of year. You don't say where you are staying.

If you are on Megali Ammos beach, Taverna Thessaloniki does great food, has great views and has a children's corner with games etc and Kiki the parrot who the kids love.

Good Luck, Gary.

We are staying in Skiathos town, but we plan on going to some of the beaches. We would like to go inland, find footpaths...maybe a boattrip:-) Thank you for replying:-)

Well then, Taverna Thessaloniki is on Megali Ammos beach which is known as the Town beach. If you are staying in town it is a 15 to 20 minute walk.

It is not the best beach on the island but we love it. You can go to all the beaches on the bus from town.

Good Luck and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Gary.

Weather may be unpredicatable then. you will have some sun for sure but probably also some rain. For walks, look at the shorter ones in Ortin Widmann's book, plenty of links here:

tripadvisor.in/ShowTopic-g189499-i809-k66941…

and a sample of the book including 3 easy walks here:

I don't wish to put a downer on your plans but there is very little to entertain the children other than the beach and sea and by then most sunbeds will be gone and beach tavernas closed. On the plus side when we came the same week and couple of years ago the weather was glorious due the whole week.

I think there's a playground on the way down to town from bus stop 4, near the medical centre.

Personally I would prefer the beaches without all the sunbeds :)

But the decider will be the weather.

There is also a tiny playground on the old harbour, not far from the fishmarket, and the kids might appreciate a visit to the Skiathos Dog Shelter.
