Skiathos has an almost typically Mediterranean climate. But, like all of the northern Sporadic Islands, it's subject to a strong wind blowing from the north. For this region, popular beaches on the sheltered southern sides.

Sea temperature is lovely and warm from July through to September, but gets a little chilly during May and sometimes June. Though May is usually a great time to visit, this slight chilliness may be off-putting. The best time to visit is September, when the water is still warm and crowds are light. Summer remains the most popular time to visit Skiathos. The weather is glorious, though some find the crowds frustrating.
