We call Skaros Rock "our Rock" as it is situated right outside Tholos Resort were we stay and it really adds something special to the view. One interesting thing is watching people climbing it , sometimes we dont know how they havent fallen straight into the sea with some of the stupid , dangerous things they do. Keep to the... More

It is worth going. Tons of steps down, so going is not that bad, but coming back up is certainly a trek, but very doable. We got a bit lost going through town to find the stairway down to the Rock, but we eventually made it. We didn't head down to the chapel, but the view from the top is... More

We stayed in an amazing suite on the cliff near the Skaros Rock. We decided late one afternoon to climb the rock. It was a workout because we first walked down from the cliff we were on, then up the rock, and then down the other side! When we got to the peak, we saw a beautiful, white chapel at... More

Found this place while hiking through Firas. Beautiful views of the sea and Fira from here . Was quite windy the day I visited so didn't get to see other side of the rock but amazing views.

That you could see Santorini from a different vantage point. Great views and setting. Good for some wine at sunset but bring with you a flashlight for walking back at night

Loved this rock - SO many steps, so great for the legs, but this little trip will give you a great sense of adventure! We got about 1 metre from the top! I slightly chickened out of really going for it as I was worried I would not be able to get back down! but had such good fun figuring... More
