Agios Petros lies 16 km north west of Skyros town and is characterized by the white sand dune which stretch along the lush pine tree hills. Part of the beach is covered with pebbles and sharp shingles while tall rock formations line most of the bay.
Cedar trees growing over the rocks add to the idyllic scenery that attracts many visitors for swimming, sunbathing and kayaking. There are no facilities on the beach. On top of the hill overlooking the bay is the tranquil chapel of Agios Petros. The beach lies close to Atsitsa.
