Hey

Loads to choose from:

Pefkos Beach Hotel

Lindia Thalassa

Pefki Island

Island Blue

Matina

Stella Hotel

Pefkos Village resort is lovely but a good 15/20 min walk up n down to the centre.

Also loads of good family run small apartment/studio complexes with pools

There is nothing scary about Skiathos runway........just keep clear of the public toilets at Rhodes airport - now they are scary!

May i ask what is wrong with the runway that makes you not want to visit? Seems strange to change your destination based on how the runway looks, looks similar to most other airports on islands.

If you want a bit of luxury then Island blue is the best in Pefkos B&B through Thomson which is a full buffet breakfast everything you could imagine from cereals fruit yogurts breads pastries full english etc also air con is included in the price. bit pricey but well worth it imo.There sister hotels Pefki island and Lindia thalassa are also very good accom SC all within 5 mins of centre 2 mins from the beach.

I have been to Skiathos three times and didn't even notice the runway , it certainly wouldn't put me off. Getting back to Pefkos, we love Pefkos Beach Hotel its very central, a stroll to the beach and very clean.

I think what DBUK is getting at is the length of the runway ? I may be wrong but I think its very short like the one on Samos? When you land there you certainly know its time to brake and brake QUICKLY !!!!!

Thanks for your replies . My sister-in-law is a very nervous traveller and googled the airport as it's very nervy and short so have booked pefkos instead

Hi

(IMHO) You don't know what you're missing by choosing Pefkos over Skiathos! I've been to Skiathos 14 times and the landing at Skiathos is no different from any other landing.

I have also been to Pefkos. Once.

Hope you have a good holiday and maybe think again about Skiathos for a future holiday
