Molos is the name of a beach on the east coast of Skyros
island. It is part of the long and wide beach strip below Skyros Chora
, and this is the largest beach on the island which is entirely covered with sand. The north and more distant part of the beach is known as Molos, and the south one - as Magazia
The beach of Molos has coarse dark sand and a gorgeous view of Chora, especially in mornings and early afternoons when the sun is shining over the village. The sea is not shallow around the shore and the water quickly gets deep, so small children should not be left unattended. Sunbeds and parasols are provided by a few beach tavernas but the place never gets crowded because of its size.
Around Molos there are many new buildings, mainly small hotels, villas and holiday homes. The tavernas are concentrated by the sea but at the back of the settlement there is also a good bakery-cafe with large selection of snacks, pastries, cookies and sweets Compared to Magazia, there is much more space between the buildings and more parking places, respectively. Skyros Chora is nearby for evening walks but yet not so close to go on foot and it is recommended to have or rent a car during your stay.
Just above the fishing pier of Molos there is an area called Pouria
. It is often photographed because of the scenic little church of Agios Nikolaos dug out in a lonely rock, and the peculiar rock formations left at the place of an ancient quarry.
