Holidays in Aghia Paraskevi provide a form of paradise for tourists. With perfect, sunny weather, beautiful beaches and crystal clear water, there's not much to dislike about this resort.
Aghia Paraskevi is on the Greek island of Skiathos in the Aegean Sea. The waters around the coast are shallow, making it an excellent destination for families with young children. The resort is popular but quiet, and those after an exciting nightlife will find it a taxi ride away in the town of Skiathos. The town can also offer an interesting day trip to take some time out from the exhausting task of sunbathing and swimming in the sea. Skiathos Old Town is a charming place to visit, with quaint, traditional streets and shops to visit and for a glimpse of traditional Greek life. Visitors can access Skiathos Town by taxi but there are regular buses to and from the town as well.
Package holidays in Aghia Paraskevi aren’t just about relaxation, there are plenty of water sports activities available on the sea for those seeking a bit of adventure, such as water skiing, diving and day long sailing trips on catamarans. Inland there are opportunities for activities such as paragliding and mountain biking. These will be at additional cost to the package holiday deals that are on offer, but they may well be worth the extra Euros.
The hotels at Aghia Paraskevi are luxurious, and there are self-catering options available as well. The restaurants offer a mix of traditional Greek cuisine and more regular, universal fare such as pizzas and burgers. While the evenings are quiet and relaxed in Aghia Paraskevi, there are a number of taverns in which you can while away a summer's evening, and it is worth a trip into Skiathos Town to experience the diverse range of restaurants that can be found there.
