The island was named after its wild rocky terrain. “Skiron” or “Skyron” means “debris of stone.” (The island had the reputation for its decorative stone.)

One of the most popular ways of access to Skyros is by the ship of the Skyros Naval Company, which operates daily routes to and from the ports Linaria Skyros and Kymi Evia. The trip takes 1 hour and 40 minutes. Also, Skyros Airport serves flights throughout the year to and from Athens Airport – Eleftherios Venizelos and Macedonia Airport in Thessaloniki.

The northern part of the island is covered by a forest, while the south, dominated by the highest mountain, called Kochila (792 m), is naked and rocky.

The capital of the island is also called Skyros (or, locally, Chora). The main port, on the west coast, is Linaria.

The island has a castle dating back to the Venetian occupation (13th-15th century), a Byzantine monastery (the monastery of St. George), the tomb of the English poet Rupert Brooke in an olive grove from the road leading to Tris The Bouchs harbor. There are many beaches on the coast.

The island has its own race of Skyrian ponies.

The Municipality of Skyros is part of the regional unit of Evia. Besides Skyros, it consists of the small inhabited island of Skikopoula and some smaller uninhabited islands. The total area of the municipality is 223.10 square kilometers.
