of Thanasis Fabas are exhibited. The monastery of Agios Athanasios
situated on a very green slope is very interesting.

Sporades islands and Evia by ship and Flying Dolphins.
A ten minute walk following the path along the sea is leading
to the sandy beach of Mikro, that belongs to the village Lafkos.
Crystal waters and a golden beach is what is offered here.
The beaches of Katigiorgis and Kastri are magnificent as well.
Katigiorgis is a small fishing village just across from Skiathos
and has several idyllic beaches and blue-green waters. You can
have a unique experience riding a horse through the pine forest
of Katigiorgis. At the beach of Kastri you can hear no sound but
the lapping of the waves, the whistling of the wind and the drawl
of the fishermen. In the summer Kastri is an ideal place for windo-surfing
due to the wind "bogazi". The beach of Mourtias and
the village Liri are within a good reach from Katigiorgis.
