Welcome to Skyros, the Anemoessa (Windswept island) of the Aegean.

Skyros is located at the heart of the Aegean sea. It is the southernmost island of the Sporades and it is located east of Evia.  The island is characterized by strong contrasts- you can find hills with pine trees, rocky mountain landscapes, idyllic remote seashores, beautiful bays, extended beaches, littoral caves and the Natura region in the south, all of which form a natural and full of varity relief.

Having a centuries-old history, Skyros has always been a place that has safeguarded its traditions and authenticity.  Visitors can admire the local architecture, the elaborate wood carvings, the embroidery and the Byzantine ceramic. Among the sun-bleached hoyses of the Hora(town) you will discover small museums and will be impressed by their unique decoration.  You will also enjoy walking around the quaint alleys smelling of jasmine and basil.
