If you visit Skiathos, you must make sure you visit Mpourtzi, the former fort of the island. It is like a peninsula that splits the port in two. The view and the scenery are both fantastic! And there is even a small place where you can have a coffee or ouzo, if you are a fan!

This is great place to come for breakfast with a view and also a nice relaxing evening. The evening atmosphere is so chilled and complimented with easygoing friendly service. We made several visits here during our holiday...a lovely place!

A lovely distraction from the hustle and bustle of the old port Only a 10 minute walk around the island but there are so many places to sit and watch the varying sea views and a grand al-fresco tapas cafe/bar that the walk could take much longer.Well worth the visit

Beautiful for the wedding!! Ensure you wear flip flops etc when going in sea as sea urchins are rife here. Cafe is lovely too with great views when walking up to.

I went to skiathos in July for my friends wedding and on the day of the wedding they took everyone for breakfast at the bourtzi cafe. The service was great the breakfast was great and the views were spectacular. Definitely worth a visit and next time I'm in skiathos I will be going there for dinner.

A nice little peaceful area of Skiathos town that looks like an island, but no beach that I can see. Peaceful area with seats and great views of the harbour and town area. There is a restaurant at the furthermost part of the Bourtzi. There is also an outside theatre. Guests at our hotel said the meals here were very... More
