The white sandy beaches on the south coast of the Greek island of Skiathos, and the mountainous region to the north make this small resort destination a top choice for travellers looking for a wide range of activities in a warm and sunny environment.
February is quite chilly by Skiathos standards, but pleasantly warm for a winter month in comparison to the UK. Temperatures top out at around 13.5 degrees celsius, and can drop as low as 6.5 degrees overnight so it's best to pack a jacket or warm jumper for the evenings.
Rainfall is moderate, around 46mm during the month. This is normal for Skiathos' subtropical Mediterranean climate which tends to bring warm and dry summers and mild and wet winters. This level of rainfall is generally consistent throughout the winter months.
For equally stunning beachfront accommodation, spend the night at the VillaApollon. From £52 per night visitors can stay in a one or two bedroomed apartment complete with private terrace (and furniture) overlooking the sea. The rate includes breakfast in the dining room each morning, which also serves as a bar in the early evening, serving up refreshing soft drinks and cocktails.
Enjoy a traditional Greek meal at the TroulosTaverna. This multi award winning restaurant has been serving up fresh fish, salads and pastas since 1975 and boasts a stunning location right on the island's south coast.
February isn't really beach weather in Skiathos, but there's plenty of sights to see on the island. One such sight is the house of famed Greek author Alexandros Papadiamantis who was born and raised here. Located on the east of the island, just 100 metres from the beachfront, this 18th Century property has been carefully restored and transformed into a museum showcasing Papadiamantis' life.
