About Skyros

Green, rolling Skyros is the largest island in the Sporades group, known for its birdlife, its beautiful, rocky coast and for its wild horses: Achilles was said to have ridden one into Troy. Greek mythology aside the island today is popular with the alternative arts and health and wellness crowd. During the summer the island’s population more than doubles, but it’s a large enough island to accommodate and it doesn’t feel too crowded.

The car-free main town, or chora, on Skyros is also called Skyros, and it’s not a port as you might expect, but a beautifully quaint hilltop town with quaint streets and an exciting marketplace. Skyros is definitely one of the best places to stay in Skyros if you’re here to see the whole island and not just relax on the beach.

There’s a daily ferry during summer.
