Newbie questions.


We are coming to Skiathos on the last 3 days in May for 1 week and have a few questions.

(Sorry if these are answered elsewhere)

Should we get decent weather?

How much cash would we need for eating out and drinking? We are staying B&B (We are not heavy drinkers so would prob have a bottle of wine with dinner and a few drinks in a bar after)

How far is little banana beach from Koukounaries?

Is the shopping good in Skiathos town and how much would a return cab journey cost from Koukounaries?

Many thanks for your help.

You will probably get a few varied answers as everyone has their preferred way of dealing with their holiday money but mine is to take a couple of hundred euro with me to start off and then use the ATM's. Travellers cheques are more or less obsolete now.

We take euros and sterling, last time we went to Kouk there was an ATM machine next to the supermarket but we didn't use it if we need to change sterling to Euro we change it at the Stofilia Taverna the owner has a change booth there if you look outside of the taverna he has the exchange rate on a board.
