Will the Kids Like it....???

Getting a shortlist drawn up for some last-minute summer options and like the look of AP but slightly concerned the kids (boys aged 9 & 7) might be a bit bored.

What is there in the immediate area or how close is AP to something with a bit of entertainment for kids?

AP is lovely for nice accommodation near a beach, there is no town/village just a collection of accommodation, tavernas, couple of bars and small supermarkets for s/c supplies.

There are no hotels catering for children/families in the style of those you find on larger islands or the mainland. Skiathos is a lovely island but I'm not sure that in the packed month of August it would be the most suitable place for your kids, I'm struggling to think of anything specifically aimed at kids aged 9 & 7.

A late Spring Bank Holiday would be a good time to bring them when it isn't as crowded and you can take advantage of the boat trips and beaches but this is just my opinion. I do know that some of our regular posters are there now with children of a similar age.

We stayed in AP when the kids were younger and they really enjoyed themselves. We often got the bus down to Koukounaries and went exploring though the pine forest and enjoyed an afternoon on one of the many lovely beaches. There are loads of lovely boat trips that our kids enjoyed.

I personally would avoid the dog shelter, as our little girl became very poorly with a nasty GI stomach bug despite us taking the necessary hand washing precautions -however this was many years ago and the cleanliness may have improved.

We are here on our 4th visit, the 10 year old loves it but the 14 year old is a bit bored this year- thank goodness for wifi!
