Pefkos Beach is a quiet beach that lies in the west of Skyros just south of Atsitsa and Agios Fokas. It is situated in a bay that is surrounded by pine trees, and facing the beach is a relatively flat island. The beach is rather isolated and there are not many facilities, so you must bring your own water (although in high season there seems to be a tavern). Some parts of the road to the beach are dirt track (update: the road was completed and ran all the way to the village when we visited it in 2018). At Pefkos beach are a few houses and there are a number of small fishing boats floating in the bay. It was once the site of a marble quarry, and marble was exported from the bay.
The colour of the clear water at Pefkos beach is greenish and the beach consists mainly of coarse sand and small pebbles. The bay lies protected and there are no high waves.
The beach is divided into two parts. There is a beach in front of the few houses and the tavern and there is a better beach just around the corner.
