I really liked my visit to this museum. Fabulous Views. Very good in terms of familiarising yourself with the history of the island. There is a real sense of history about this house tool. Magnificent views.

The definition of Greek summer is hours of relaxation by the sea or the pool, enjoying the colours of the nature, this unique combination of the blue tones of the sky and the sea. In such a dreamy environment, in Alortho Puri of the Aspous area in Skyros, there is a magnificent multipurpose complex named Aigaioris, offering a breathtaking view to the endless blue of the Aegean Sea.
Κτισμένο σε μία όμορφη πλαγιά με θέα το Αιγαίο, απλά υπέροχο και με πολλά event και ο τέλειος χώρος για εκδηλώσεις. Μοιράζεις τον χρόνο σου εκεί είτε για έναν καφέ, είτε για μια βουτιά στην πισίνα, ή ακόμα και για φαγητό. Και το βραδάκι μπορείς να πάς να απολαύσεις και το ποτάκι σου. Το συνιστώ.

In the beautiful island of Skyros, we offer you small and big rides with horses. In a fabulous natural resort you can enjoy the unique experience of riding. Our horses are trained and suitable for all the family and all levels off knowledge. We provide rides of 15´, 30´ or 60´and off course the 3our excursion on the beach, where you can rest, swim and play. All walks taken place with the presence of Manolis Malamatinis who is in charge of the place. Manolis a real horse whisperer lives with the horses and runs the place for over 25 years working with love, patience and care: the basics elements of the unique relationship between man and horse.
We came to the riding club on our 2nd day on the island. When we got there we were welcomed by Penelope, who told us all about the horses while we were waiting for " the captain" to come back from a previous ride. Once he arrived he helped us get on and made sure we were comfortable on the horses. 2 of us were experienced riders and 1 of us was a beginner. This experience really is for any level of riders. We went out for 1 hour which was a perfect amount of time. Overall we throughly enjoyed it and would come back again!

Kores is a new art and design gift shop, located in Chora, on the central footpath on the way to the museums. You'll find a fine selection of handmade jewelry and accessories all made by Greek designers.
Very nice little shop with tasteful accessoires, jewellery and clothing. Extremely nice and stylish owner. Only who has got taste, can sell tasteful things?

You can't visit Skyros and not see these unique horses. The species is highly endangered and the farm is working hard to protect and preserve the breed. There's no admission price to see the horses -'but as the farm relies on donations there is the chance to donate. This isn't an organised experiences - it's just you and horses. And as a bonus the taverna opposite offers good value, tasty food.

We stayed at the Hydrous Hotel located on Molos so we only had to take a few steps to get to the beach. We went in early June during the week so we had the whole beach practically to ourselves. It was perfect! The water was crystal clear (see photo) with a sandy beach we ended up walking and bathing all day. Can't wait to go back!

This small but informative museum is well worth a visit. 2 rooms cover the archaeology of the island with a small room allocated to local folklore. Much of the information is concerned with the Bronze Age legacy of the island. It is well labelled in English. €2 entrance fee.

Rupert Brooke died on his way to Gallipoli in a warship moored at Tris Boukes Bay off the island of Skyros. His body was brought ashore and buried in an olive grove. The original simple grave was replaced by a tomb commissioned by his mother after World War I. The area where the grave is is in the South of the island and is mountainous and rugged. There are no signs to the grave but it is marked on the local maps. His most famous poem which contains the famous lines 'that there is a corner of a foreign field That is forever England' is inscribed on the tomb. This was a 'must' visit for my husband who went to Rugby School where the poet was born and educated.
