Map of Skyros

Skyros is one of the Greek Sporades Islands located in the Aegean Sea 70 kilometres north east of Athens. It’s the largest, most southerly and least visited island in the archipelago. Many British and Dutch ex-patriates have made the place their home but Skyros has made no effort to cultivate mass tourism so don’t come here expecting a huge choice of hotels, glitzy discos and busy beach resorts. Poor transport links have kept package holidaymakers at bay but independent travellers who make their own way here will find one of the most interesting and relaxing holiday destinations in the Aegean.
