Nestled in the Aegean Sea, Skyros is the largest and least explored island of the Sporades archipelago.

Local accommodations can be found for low prices if you look in the right places. To save on meals, opt for local tavernas away from the main tourist areas. Many offer daily specials that are both delicious and affordable. The area around Molos Beach is known for its reasonably priced eateries.
For transportation, consider renting a scooter or using the local bus service to explore the island, as these options are more economical than renting a car.
Skyros boasts a variety of natural and historical sights that cater to diverse interests. Chora, the island's capital, perched on a hill, offers stunning views and features traditional Skyrian architecture. Skyros Castle is a Byzantine castle atop Chora which provides panoramic views of the island and the Aegean Sea. Faltaits Historical and Folklore Museum showcases the island's rich cultural heritage. Atsitsa Bay offers crystal-clear waters, perfect for swimming and relaxation.
