Sorted by popularity:

The small Greek island of Skiathos is part of the Sporades group of islands which are all major tourist destinations due to their prime location in the northwest Aegean Sea. At just 7.5 miles long and 3.5 miles wide, Skiathos boasts a whopping 27 miles of coastline, comprising of numerous beaches, bays and inlets.

January is Skiathos' coldest month of the year, but with a subtropical Mediterranean climate, even the cold months on this Greek island are mild, and certainly a lot warmer than in the UK. Highs of 13 degrees celsius can be expected during January, with low of around 6.5 degrees.

Rainfall is higher in the winter months, and the island can become a bit damp, but it's unlikely to cause any problems for travellers. About 44mm is average for January, and this level stays pretty much constant until the spring.

The nearby OasisHotel offers accommodation from £32 per night. All rooms offer private balcony overlooking the Skiathos harbour which is just a 5 minute walk from the property.

Head back to Skiathos Town and enjoy dinner in another of the island's oldest buildings; TheWindmillRestaurant. Built in 1880, this former windmill serves up traditional Greek dishes and mouthwatering desserts.

One of Skiathos' top attractions is the medieval town of Kastro. Located on a cliff top on the north end of the island, one of the best ways to get here from the main resort of Skiathos Town is by public footpath. The walk takes 3 hours so January's low humidity is the ideal time. For those who would prefer a quicker way, local taxis can be there in minutes.

In its prime, Kastro boasted over 300 houses and a whopping 22 churches. Today, only a single church remains intact, lying amongst ruins. Visitors can enter the stone-floored church, adorned with religious painting from the 1800s.
