 LOCATION Minimize

Skyros is the largest island of the Sporades. Situated about a 100 miles north-east of Athens and has a population of around 3000. It is a peaceful island which although not very touristic has a lot to offer.

The charming thing about the island of Skyros is that the island looks divided, how comes? Well one half is green and has good accessibility with a lot of agriculture while the other half is almost deserted and not occupied because it is a very dry and rocky place.  

You can combine relaxation on sandy or stony beaches with touring the island and visiting the picturesque capital of the island named “Chora” and admire the traditional architecture. The very friendly people of Skyros always have an open door and invite you to see their traditional houses from the inside too ! 

During your stay you will be able to visit the interesting historical monuments such as some of the 300 Byzantine Orthodox churches that are scattered all over the island or the Archaeological Museum as well as the folklore museum. 

On the Island during the summer months scuba diving, fishing and more sea sports are organized while a traditional wooden motor boat that departs from the port of Linaria performs full day  tours to some of the nearby uninhabited beautiful small islands and caves.

The “Lithari” maisonettes are situated near the beautiful sandy beach of Gyrismata on a quiet spot and if you are in the mood for a cosmopolitan evening you can visit either the coastal villages of Molos or Magazia for a drink or a dance at a beach club.
