By Taxi

Traveling by taxi is the best way to move around anywhere in Skiathos quickly and safely, even in areas without asphalted roads such as Kastro, the Evangelistria monastery, Kechria, Mandraki, Megas Aselinos, etc.

The main taxi hub of Skiathos can be found approximately 50 meters from the exit of passenger ships in the harbor and works daily on a 24-hour basis. You can book a taxi there, or by phone at 2427024461.

In addition to the taxi hub at the harbor, you can always stop a taxi in the street. Especially during the summer months there are a lot of taxis in the Skiathos - Koukounaries route and if the driver does not have an appointment already, then they will definitely accomodate you. If they are already booked, it’s not uncommon for them to call another taxi for you.

Through prior notification, it is possible for the transport of certain objects to your hotel’s reception, such as newspapers, cigarettes, flowers, etc. For the transport of animals prior arrangements are required, and if you have forgotten a personal item inside a taxi you should contact the taxi hub immediately.

Lastly, if you are planning on going out for drinks in Skiathos, the right thing to do is leave your car at the hotel and take a taxi. Never drink and drive.
