Skyros is the southernmost island of the Sporades complex; however, administratively it belongs to Evia with which it has a ferry connection from Kimi. Skyros has a great cultural tradition and exceptional landscape. The island has its own breed of the well-known Skyrian ponies.

Many desert islands surround Skyros, the most important ones being Valaxa, Sarakiniko, Skyropoula and Platia. Skyrosoffers outstanding courses, activities and events in idyllic locations that open the heart, expand the mind, recharge the body and uplift the spirit. Many seaside resorts frame the city of Skyros. The community of Magazia, which has one of the finest beaches, is nearby.

There are also the beaches of Molos and Para Kambos. The tourist resort of Aspous lies between the town and Linaria. The latter, apart from the port of the island, is a picturesque, amphitheatrically community very popular with the tourists. Near Linaria, there are the beaches of Kalamitsa, Acherounes and Pefkos.

Particularly interesting is the northern part of the island where the landscape of the Skyrian Olympus and the pine-forested beaches remind one of northern Evia. It is worth visiting the northwest coast, Ayio Petro and Kira Panagia as well as Atsitsa. Even more adventurous is to tour the southern part of the island where its highest mountain Kochila dominates. In this area, it is dry and rocky, resembling southern Evia.

Another interesting spot is Tris Boukes, a large natural harbor the entrance of which is fenced by the small islands of Plati and Sarakino. Tris Boukes Bay was used as anchorage for hospital ships treating the wounded from Gallipoli. It was on one of these that the English poet Rupert Brooke died in April 1915 and buried there.
