Magazia. Magazia and Molos on the Greek island of Skyros are the nearest beaches of Skyros Town. These beaches are within walking distance of Skyros town (Chora). A nice view of these beaches can be admired from the castle of Skyros at the top of the hill.
Magazia is the first village built around Chora. It faces a sandy beach with several terraces of restaurants and beach bars. There are also many water sports facilities available, you can, for example go windsurfing and canoeing here.
Magazia is very popular among young people, especially during the summer season. Then many young people come here for the beach bars celebrations. From the afternoon the young people are dancing here and they have a great time.
Close to the beach are old graves from the Iron Age and from the Mycenaean period (1600-1000 BC).
A third beach near Magazia and Molos is a little further north, which is the beach of Gyrismata. This beach is more quiet, but there are beach chairs and umbrellas for rent.
