As for Skyros beaches, they are beautiful and secluded, so they’re ideal for those who seek privacy. Molos, a long coast with crystal clear waters and tourist facilities, is the best beach in Skyros. A drive around the island, though, will get you to many hidden beaches with fewer facilities and a relaxing atmosphere. Ferries to Skyros depart from Kimi port in Evoia, while there are frequent ferries to Skyros from Skopelos and Alonissos during the summer.
