Photographer's Note

This is a characteristic photo of Skiathos town, the main town of Skiathos island.

The town of Skiathos has a population of 4,988 (in 2001) and along with the airport, are located to the northeast, next to a lagoon.

Skiathos is a small, Greek island, in the northwest Aegean Sea.
It is the westernmost island in the Northern Sporades group, east of the Pelion peninsula in Magnesia on the mainland, and west of the island of Skopelos.
Despite its small size, Skiathos with its many beaches and wooded landscape is a popular tourist destination.
It has over 60, mostly sandy, beaches scattered around the 44 km (27 mi) coastline. Some of these are Trulos, Vromolimnos, Koukounaries, Asselinos, Megali Ammos, Mandraki and Lalaria.
Much of the island is wooded with Aleppo Pine and there is also a small Stone Pine forest at the Koukounaries location, where there is a lagoon and a popular beach.
The island's forests are concentrated on the southwest and northern parts, but the presence of pine trees is prevalent throughout the island.

The film Mamma Mia was partially filmed on Skiathos and nearby island Skopelos. This has increased its popularity as a tourist destination since the release of the successful movie.
