The majority of people travel to Skyros by ferry. Skyros is linked to the island of Evia and the Greek mainland via the port of Kymi by a daily service of the ferryboat Achilleas. In peak season this service can rise to up to 3 crossings per day. In high season (June to Septmber) the Achilleas also links Skyros and Kymi with the islands of Alonissos and Skopelos with sailings up to 3 times per week. From Skopelos there are regular ferry services to Skiathos.
The Achilleas is a comfortable ferry which carries all size of vehicles. Every crossing connects with a bus service run by KTEL EVIAS, linking Kymi via Halkida with central Athens. The bus station in central Athens is located at 210 Liossion Street and is just a short walk from the metro station of Ayios Nikolaos or Attiki metro station. You can access both metro stations either on foot or by bus.
Alternatively the bus station can be reached by either bus number X93 (E93) which operates from Athens International airport or bus number 024 from Amalias Avenue by Syntagma Square. After you get off the bus, turn right onto Yousiou and you will see the terminal at the end of the street.
On Skyros, every arrival and departure of the ferry is met by a bus service which connects the port of Linaria with Chora(or Chorio), the island's main town. Alternatively we can arrange private transfers from the port to anywhere on the island and can also arrange pick up and delivery hire cars. For private transfers to and from Linaria please contact us. For car hire, pick up and delivery at the port please contact www.skyrosrentacar.com.
