<p>MORE GEOGRAPHICAL DATA 41 miles from Volos, the capital of the prefecture of Magnissia. It stretches over 47.94 square kilometres, a coast perimeter of 44 km, a length of 10.5 km (SW - NE) and a width of 5.6 km (N - S). It is mostly mountainous (70% of the land). Skiathos has an irregular shape but it fits in a circle <img src= of 12 km length and 6 km width from North to South.

70 gulfs and bays are formed, and numerous peninsulas. The relief of Skiathos is hilly in general with its highest point being Stavros at 424 m.

Its most important bays are those of Skiathos SE, of Platania SW and of Katavothra NE.

Its coasts are sandy and of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean, but also pebbly… many of you will definitely have seen photographs of LALARIA or the well-known Koukounaries on posters of the Greek Tourist Organisation.

The town of Skiathos is in the south-east of the island, on the west coast of the bay with the same name. In the north we find the Castle, the old Castle-town of Skiathos.

There are two basic wetland habitats… of Koukounaries (Strofylias) and of Agios Georgios, but also smaller marshes, e.g. the one at Vromolimnos.
