Skiathos is the westernmost island in the Northern Sporades group of islands in Greece. The name of the island dates back to ancient times and so does its history, from the Persean wars (480 B.C.) until the Greek War of Independence Skiathos when the first flag of Greece was created and hoisted in the Evangelistria monastery in Skiathos in 1807.
Today the island is a popular tourist destination with modern facilities. It has over 60, sandy beaches and large pine forests that cover a big part of the island and adjust next to the sea providing a unique relaxing view and a perfect enviroment.
