Skiathos with another island, this possible?

Looking to go to Skiathos next June for 10 days but quite like idea of an island hop holiday. Is this possible? Skiathos is great for beaches so would like a small island to hire a car and explore or walk around?

Thanks

Skiathos is easily connected with Skopelos and Alonissos.

Hi Rach68

Have you considered the mainland ? a short ferry ride from Skiathos town would get you to the stunningly beautiful Pelion peninsula .

No not thought of main land at all to be honest. Didn't realise it that close. Could we do that for a day visit?

Which is the best Island hop to for a day if we base our selves at skiathos? Could we hire a car from where the ferry drops you off? Could we do that for the main land to?

Hi Rach

We did it the other way around , Had the holiday in the Pelion and took a day trip to Skiathos.

We flew into Volos {pelion} and stayed in Horto but spent quite a bit of time in Milina the next resort {It had a bit of nightlife, Horto is beautiful but very very quiet }

I dont know about trips to the mainland from Skiathos but a 2 centre holiday may be possible because our flight had drop offs at both airports but that was back in the kosmar days. A car is essential to get the best out of the area as public transport is either non existant or thin on the ground.

PS, the ferry lands at Platianas , I believe car hire was available close by, and a day is nowhere near enough time to see it all 3 days would be good but a week would be much better .

I hope this helps rather than confuses .

Glenn.
