BEST TIME TO VISIT
If you're looking to escape the crowds, May and October are ideal months to private yacht charter in Skorpios as there are fewer visitors to the island. The months can be a little cooler, but temperatures are still pleasant, sitting around 25°C during the day.
Yachting and boating enthusiasts will want to bear in mind the Skorpios Cup yacht race in June and the Antique and Classic Boat Show, which takes place in the picturesque Port of Skorpios each September. The Boat Show sees yacht owners from all over the world come to display their beautiful vessels, and there's also a range of other activities and entertainment on offer.
Outside of the yachting event calendar, August attracts visitors to the Skorpios Film Festival, which screens a selection of independent films from around the world.
Activities & Experiences
Although Skorpios has many off-limit areas, there is still a great amount to do on this wealthy island. We recommend you:
Take a dip in the iconic Jaqueline Kennedy Beach:
This sheltered cove is only accessible by yacht, making it the ultimate spot to take a dip with only other luxury yachts around. The secluded beach is where Jackie Kennedy used to sunbathe and was even given the name by Aristotle Onassis himself.
Enjoy a game of tennis or volleyball:
The island has its own tennis court and volleyball pitch, both with stunning views. Perfect for families or friends looking to keep active while on vacation.
Visit the Church of Agios Ioannis:
The white-washed church is one of the most photographed buildings on the island and is definitely worth a visit.
Visit the Tsambika Beach Club:
The chic Tsambika Beach Club is the perfect place to enjoy some delicious food and drinks while relaxing in a beautiful setting.
Explore the island's hiking trails:
If you're feeling active, there are a number of hiking trails to explore, taking you through the island's picturesque landscapes. There are two trails, in particular, that we recommend. The first leads to the lighthouse and the other to the abandoned monastery.
Visit the Skorpios Taverna:
The Skorpios Taverna is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional Greek meal. The taverna is located in the main port and has a lovely outdoor seating area with views of the harbour. While you're there, wander the port town and browse the exclusive shops.
Watch the sunset from Agios Sostis Beach:
One of the most beautiful beaches on the island, Agios Sostis, is a must-visit while yacht chartering in Skorpios. The beach is only a short walk from the main port and offers stunning views of the sunset.
