“Worth a go!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Hard work getting down and back up again but worth it for the views- take a bottle of water or two and a spare pair of legs- you will need them!

“An easy must-do addition to your day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

If the day is going to be warm, do this early in the day! It's a relatively easy hike - I would just suggest not doing it in the middle of the day in the summer time.

Everyone else's reviews pretty much sum it up - it's gorgeous and take your time exploring. There is a small church on the far side and down (keep walking... ) and there is a way to get up on the top of the rock. Getting up top is not as simple as the other hiking around, but worth it if you can get up there!

“Go right to the end to see the cliff church!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is a decent walk, not 'difficult' as such, but quite long and lots of stairs at the beginning. Make sure to walk right to the end of the rock as there is a hidden church at the end. You can also walk to the top of the rock to view from the highest point. Wear comfortable shoes as parts of the path are quite narrow or uneven.

“Nice little hike and quite unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We hiked to Skaros from our hotel in Imerovigli and it was a nice little hike. Do not wear sandals as the terrain can get a bit rocky. Some parts of the hike is quite steep so be prepared to put in a bit of effort. We went as far as the top of the church on the ocean facing side of the rock and thoroughly enjoyed the view. Some people climbed to the top of the rock but it looked pretty scary!!!

“Great!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The walk to the top isn't too arduous but is steep and obviously the steps aren't even so you must look at where you are going. Follow the rocky path around the other side to go exploring the beautiful hidden church. The view is AMAZING! We tried to find the path to the very top and were disappointed we couldn't get up there as had seen people up there the day before: so it is do able but is very rocky and steep so wouldn't attempt it without someone who'd done it before.
Just a fabulous experience and you work off all the feta cheese at the same time.
