Natural Beauties

The existence of springs in Skyros is absolutely intertwined with the traditions. The spring “Nyfi” with its thermal water that refreshes and “Anavalsa” the vivifying source of Chora, with its pond, “give life” to Skyros.

Skyros is surrounded by 11 islets or “stone ships”. The Skyropoula is the largest islet, mountainous and rocky. There stands the church of the Assumption of Mary (17th Century). The Balaxa is the next in size and “gives birth” from ancient times until today the famous marble of Skyros.

Opposite are the Diavates (“the passers)”, an area where gulls lay their eggs and anglers make good fish!

The cave of Pentekali or Diatrypti is a cave of a unique beauty. It is named so due to the fact that a small boat can pass through the cave. The stalactites of the cave sparkle due to the light in the sea. Swimming in the water is a unique experience!
