1 night stay & ferry to Skopelos (Glossa)

Hi guys,

the four of us are planning on flying into Skiathos early evening mid May 2015 for 1 night prior to then catching a ferry to Glossa Skopelos. Does anyone have a recommendation on a nice harbour view accommodations within easy walk of the ferry. Would also appreciate an approx. time the ferry would leave for Skopelos as well..

many thanks,

Tramper

The ferry normally departs at 11:45am.

Hotel Meltemi is right on the seafront around 200m from the ferry berth

Hey and welcome Tramper:-) Along with the Meltemi, there is also Christina's (more pension like) and the infamous San Remo.. and another I forget the name on the waterfront in front of Christina's.. doubt you'll have a problem finding a room on the spot for an overnighter regardless in mid-May;-) For ferry schedules, keep an eye out at www.gtp.gr/ www.openseas.gr/ Again, easy enough as the 1st ferry out from Skiathos is usually by/before noontime;-) Happy planning.. and EnJOY!

Hi Litsa, maybe you are thinking of the Akti.

Four choices there so don't think there will be a scramble for rooms in mid-May.

thanks very much guys...appreciate the fedback..is abit frustrating in that we are leaving Santorini to Athens and onwards to Skopelos through Skiathos and trying to figure best way to get there..Anyone know how far out do they plan their departures etc from Athens airport? Im sure at the end of the day the effort in getting there will be worth it!

Our pleasure Tramper:-) Actually not an easy trek, lol!! Keep an eye out on www.olympicair.com/ www.aegeanair.com/ who have merged.. and sign up now for their email alerts! Flights are operated by both carriers from Santorini.. by Olympic to Skiathos! Thing is, there are numerous flights daily from Santorini to Athens.. it's the Athens/Skiathos flight that is usually only daily so takes some maneuvering to plot it out;-)) Well worth it;-)) Keep us posted.. keep Enjoyin'!

yummmm..sounds delicious; I mean the barbeque chicken...may have to try the octopus(?)..do you know if there is any advantage to geting a ferry from Voluous (not sure of the spelling right off..as opposed to Agios Konstaninos ..are there more departures for instance? I am also wondering of a car renatl from Athens airport but imagine there probably would be a drop off charge one way unless of course I can take it across to Skopelos?
