Skiathos end of September into Ocotber

Has anyone been to the island late in the season? We will be arrivung last week of Sept for 2 weeks and was wondering if most bars & restuarnats were still open. The weather will be what it will be but it has to be warmer than the UK!

Yes many times. I can only speak for the Town regarding the bars and restaurants. For the last week in September many will still be open but you will notice them one by one starting to close with the first week in October being significantly quieter. There will still be plenty of choice with most of the ones remaining open being owned by islanders who will be grateful for your custom.

Many out of town resorts will have started to close down, although the bus will still be running, probably every 30 mins so that you can get about if you do not have a car. As long as the weather holds then the sea remains warm from the summer and you can have some lovely quiet days on the beach...the town tavernas / cafés will slowly start to close down at the end of September, but those run by the true locals will stay open, serving lovely local food. As long as you do not want the manic nightlife then it is a great time of year to be here...

When does the nitelife normally die down? My sister and I, both 30, are coming the first week in SEptember and are wondering if we should come to the Sporades vs. Cyclades.

The nightclubs normally close at the end of August, but the more fashionable bars in town (in the old port) will stay open until the end of September (and stay open each night until the last person leaves!). It is a great time to be here.

Thanks so much fowlerat. We are coming in 3 weeks and are stuck b/t Mykonos and Skiathos. We were told that the weather in Skiathos is unpredictable and not that good in September. How is it holding up this year? We are flying out of Salonica so ideally we would go to Skiathos vs. Mykonos. Up in the air at this point. LOL

The weather will be unpredictable. Last year we had 4 days with 25 degrees and them 3 days with rain, thunder and tempratures down to 10 degrees. Good luck with your choice. Skiathos is a beautiful island:-)

We've visited in September several times. The weather can be mixed, but last year it was hot and sunny. We stay in the Alykon, and there is plenty of choice for tavernas. We do a different one each day. We're going for 2 weeks this year as it's so good.
