Skyros is a magical island, part of the Sporades complex of Greece. It is a perfect destination for nature-loving sailors and is home to gorgeous beaches covered by pine trees. Arriving in Skyros, you will get to visit the capital known as Chora. The town is built on a hillside. The Monastery of Agios Georgios has panoramic views that stretch around other coastal settlements. During your stay, you will be able to see dark roofs, white houses, a Byzantine castle, and an Archaeological Museum that still preserves the old-fashioned character of the Greek islands. The Archaeological Museum has a wonderful selection of artifacts and is a showcase of the very early stages of pottery. In Greek mythology, Theseus returned to Skyros after his labors. King Lycomedes exterminated him in fear of him preceding the throne. There are mentions that the first inhabitants of Greece lived in Skyros, and it has a significant presence in geometric and archaic years. The deep-rooted customs and traditions are alive till the present day, where woodcarving furniture and handmade ceramics captivate every visitor. Home also to the rare breed of horses, the ‘Skyrian Horse’ is a trademark of the island which can be found on the southern part of the island. A place where nature continues to thrive, renting a boat in Skyros will allow you to make the most out of your holidays with your family and friends.

Renting a sailing boat is the most fuel-efficient option for a summer holiday in the Sporades islands. Contrary to public opinion, a sailboat charter is cheaper compared to most luxury yachts that come to mind. Typically, a group of 8 people can book a sailing boat at a cost of about 50 euros per person per day, including the cost of the captain. Exploring Skyros with a sailboat will allow you to navigate the fantastic landscape that edges wonderful beaches and rugged coves.

With your sailboat hire in Skyros, we recommend you to visit Magazia and Molos. Both are stunning beaches that are rarely crowded. The two beaches are connected, organized, and perfect for both children and adults. If you are feeling adventurous, you can enjoy a slower cruise to Agios Fokas, Pefkos, Kalamitsa, Atsitsa, and Theotokos. These are peaceful and relaxing beaches a little further from the town.

For a two-day cruise in Skyros, you can spend an overnight in the bay of Kyra Panagia. The bay is part of a long and sandy beach where luscious green trees offer shade in an unspoiled setting. Finally, one of the main advantages of Skyros is that you can easily enjoy a day trip to Euboea with a sailboat of your choice. Euboea is only 35 nautical miles away from Skyros and is an ideal destination for a relaxing getaway. You may even enjoy a 3-day or 4-day charter experience by visiting the rest of the Sporades islands. These include Skiathos, Skopelos, and Alonissos.
