A wedding at sea or ashore-the choice is yours!

With more than 60 sun-kissed beaches and a chic nightlife, Skiathos is an ideal destination for a wedding and honeymoon.

Weddings can take place on beaches and in the hotel grounds, after civil ceremonies the previous day.

You could even say 'I do' on the sparkling sea, aboard the Planitis, a 27ft wooden sailing boat which can accommodate up to 40 people for the ceremony and a cocktail reception.

Olympic Holidays recommends staying near Skiathos Town for ease of organisation.

Before or after your wedding in Skiathos, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to explore this beautiful Greek island, so be sure to take picturesque walks, enjoy the expansive stretches of beach heaven and explore the myriad archaeological sites, caves and small coves that can be found here.

Skiathos waterfront

The island is a sun worshipper’s paradise so if your idea of a perfect romantic trip is lazing on one of more than 60 beautiful beaches with your partner, Skiathos is the ideal place for your honeymoon or wedding ceremony.

Agia Eleni beach has the best sunsets on the island – perfect for sundowners – while gently-shelving Platanias is long, sandy and safe. Excellent Banana Beach is close to Koukounaries, while Troulos has an amazing choice of lovely spots along the shore. Why not try a boat trip to check out the full beauty of the coast?

The waterfront of Skiathos Town offers an array of bars, boutiques and restaurants, as well as a fish market, and the Old Port is a charming place to sit with a meze and an ouzo and watch the world go by.

A leisurely drive might take you to historic Evangelistra Monastery, where you will find even more fantastic views, while the adventurous will find plenty of sailing, diving and watersports facilities.
