beautiful secret church hidden on the cliffs below Skaros.. i did the walk in flip flops, but to climb the actual rock would need proper shoes and experience since the rock is very steep

Let's get a few details out of the way: I'm in great shape, love an amazing view, appreciate history, and am always curious to explore something new. We were staying directly above Skaros Rock so it was always in my view. On the last day and after reading about the history of Skaros Rock, I decided to check it out.... More

The walk and the rock is very nice. Visit close the the sunset. and make sure to make the small trip down to the little church on the water side of the church. After that take a boat trip around, then you will really appreciate your visit the this amazing little church on the side of the rock :)

Go up before sunset and watch the sun go down. Feels like you are on top of the world. Besides being excellent exercise the panoramic views in the day are so amazing, the best pictures of our trip to Greece!

Breathtaking and a must do! Steep cliffs with gorgeous views down. We climbed it on a hot day and found it a bit strenuous but very worth it.

I highly recommend a hike out to the rock to see the breathtaking views of the caldera. My husband and I enjoyed it so much that we went twice. Going out is fine because it's all downhill; coming back is a bit of a trek up many many stairs, but it is worth it. If you keep following the path... More

Keen walkers, hikers, and climbers will be drawn to this peak in front of Imerovigli. They will have to climb up it, because "it's there!". BUT for a lot of others I say don't bother. Why? Well for one it is yet another reason to clamber down lots of steps from Imerovigli before you even start on Skaro's steps. In... More

Limited choice of wine; food was not well presented and otherwise we thought of average quality. Service was acceptable and it does have a very good view over the caldera

Don't visit this the day after hiking Imerovigli to Oia the day before. Lots of steps but lovely view our hotel overlooked this and it was always pretty quiet.

It was a nice view, but not sure it was worth the hike up all those stairs on the way back! We did not make it to the very top of the rock as there did not seem to be a great path that looked safe enough and we are semi-athletic people.
