Skiathos Weather March Averages, Greece
Skiathos is a popular tourist destination in Greece. A part of the Sporades group, this small island is less than 8 miles long and 4 miles wide, but has no trouble drawing in the crowds who descend on the isle to take advantage of the great watersports, fantastic weather and scenery.
March is still very much winter in Skiathos and this means chilly and wet, at least by Greek standards. Temperatures range from 8 to 16 degrees celsius, so while it may be borderline t-shirt weather during the day, it's wise to pack a cardigan or jacket for the evenings.
The usual winter downpours continue, with 42mm expected during March. However, these showers should start to ease off towards the end of the month as the spring month of April approaches and the summer dry season comes within sight.
A stay at Skiathos' 4* MagicHotel costs as little as £46 per night. Larger rooms are available for groups and families and a buffet breakfast is served each morning. There's a swimming pool and children's pool onsite for days when the sea is just a bit too nippy.
For an end-of-day reward, make a reservation at the TavernaSelini, a 'balcony restaurant' commanding great views over the Bourtzi Bay and neighbouring islands. The menu is traditionally Greek, with meze platters and Greek-style coffee and it especially welcomes families, giving younger guests a choice from the dedicated children's menu.
Visitors who enjoy being active, especially those who like to hike and sightsee, will find March's cooler weather and lower humidity an ideal time for taking a self-guided tour with WalkingTheIslands. The aim of this company is to get travellers off the beaten path to see some of Greece's real sights. Maps of local footpaths can be obtained which take walkers to monasteries, chapels, river valleys and hilltop view points that many tourists never take the time to explore.
