Hi, i m going for 2 weeks in Greece, I want to stay one week in Skiathos, and then I want to see some nice islands for another week, what do you recommend? And how much is the ferry to arrive to them ?? I have to return after that week in Skiathos, back, because I have my flight there.

Hey and welcome madeline1311:-) Check out both www.skopelosweb.gr/ and www.alonissos.gr/ These isles are so close together, easy enough to even to day trips.. takes barely 15 min to get to Glossa in Skopelos.. another 15 from Skopelos Town to Alonissos;-) You can check schedules.. and get rates by doing a dummy booking.. at www.gtp.gr/ www.openseas.gr/ Happy planning.. and EnJOY!

Visit Skopelos and Alonissos, easy to get to and plenty of accomodation. Ferry offices are opposite the harbour ...

Our pleasure:-) Bottom line, with a 2 week vaca.. and a week planned in Skiathos already.. an additional 2 isles should be more than enough:-) You don't mention when you're traveling, but it in season.. and If you find you have the time and willing to substitute, you may want to check out Skyros with more limited ferry schedules as well as a way longer ferry ride.. only other isle with available ferry access covering entire isle group;-) Would look at a map and check ferry schedules! Keep us posted.. keep enjoyin'!

alonissos was beautiful. Lovely little harbour with beach and breath taking views from the village at the top. Very picturesque. Fabulous trip over but a bit rough. Combined a trip to Skopelos and Alonissos as part of a day trip.Highly recommended.Enjoy!
