The wonderful Acherounes beach lies 10 km west of Skyros Town. The panoramic view of the mountains and the open horizon offers an exciting scene. There are many trees along the coast. The soft golden sand and the clean, crystal blue waters attract lots of visitors. Because of the surrounding hilly terrain and the geographical position of the area, the sea is very calm here, ideal for families and a fun filled day at the beach. There are a number of spacious cafeterias and snack bars available here. The chapel of Virgin Mary is very near to this place and on every 15th of August a large festival is conducted there.
