Skyros is accessible either by ferry or by plane.
The island’s passenger ship "Achilleas" sails from Kymi to Skyros and back, while during summer months there is a connection with Alonissos, Skopelos and Volos. To find out more about the timetables, ticket prices and their issuance, we refer you to www.sne.gr.
The journey from Athens, by private means of transport, includes going through Chalkida, Aliveri and Kymi and has a duration of approximately 2 hours 30 minutes.
If you plan to travel by boat without your own means of transport, you can use a coach from the Liosia Coach Station (KTEL) to get to the beach of Kimi. From there, you board "Achilles" which will take you to the port of Linaria within 1 hour and 40 minutes. You can find more information about the coach routes of Liosia KTEL at http://www.dromologiaktel.gr.
