If, like us, you find yourself in Patitiri Harbour as part of the island tour from Skiathos, then break free from the crowds, forget the harbour front bars, and head for the hill(s).
Lithos is situated to the far right (as you leave the boat) of the harbour, nestled in the rocks and is accesible via steps built in to the hillside. A gentle climb is rewarded by wonderful views out to sea and a cool and relaxing cafe/bar.
While the views are certainly worthwhile, perhaps the most rewarding part of Lithos is the warm welcome and hospitality from the owner.
We arrived in the afternoon, hot and bothered after a climb, and were welcomed with a complimentary jug of iced water. We were looking for a light lunch and ordered toasties (tost) which were served with crisps and salad. The beers were served in ice cold glasses and accompanied by even more crisps and some nuts.
The bar is set out over many levels, with the bar and toilets at the very top level. Perhaps this bird's eye view gives the owner an advantage as the service was amazingly speedy and attentive. A wonderful way to spend a few hours before reboarding the boats for home.
