For this week’s Thursday Doors I have found some lovely Greek blue doors for you….This photo was taken on the island of Skyros, which is one of the Sporades group, which also includes Skiathos, Skopelos and Allonisos. Skyros is some distance from the other islands, and there is no ferry link from them, so it is a much more real ‘Greek’ island. There is some tourism, but not the brash, holiday package type holidays, due to the fact that it takes some effort to get to Skyros.
Skyros is a very beautiful island, and the hill town or ‘chora’ is well worth a visit. Skyros is also well-known for its special breed of native ponies which live here. There are very few herds of Skyros ponies outside of the island.
We sailed to Skyros on our yacht Fandancer from Samos, on our journey around the Aegean Sea. Skyros was one of my favourite islands that we visited. You can read about my other favourite Greek islands if you click here.
