Agios Fokas Beach is located in the west of Skyros, southwest of Chora, just west of the beach of Pefkos and south of Astisa Beach.
If you drive from the direction of Pefkos to Agios Fokas you will pass the church of Agios Panteleimonas where there are panoramic views over the sea towards the bay and the beach of Pefkos, and some of the islets that surround Skyros, such as the small island of Valaxa. It is situated in a natural beautiful area that is full of pine trees. There is a path leading from here to another beach but before you will reach it you end at an gated house and there is no entrance to the actual beach.
Agios Fokas is a beach with sand and pebbles, surrounded by pine trees. Agios Fokas beach lies in a bay that is protecting it from strong winds. The last stretch to the beach (about four kilometers) is over a dirt road. Take the exit to Pefkos and then take the dirt road you will see here (so not all the way to Pefkos). During high season there is a tavern on the beach, but there are no other facilities (except for a few straw umbrellas that you are free to use). Agios Fokas beach is clean and the water here is clear and has a nice colour of blue.
There was quite some seaweed on the beach as well when we were there in May 2018 (it had not been cleaned yet because the tourist season had not started yet, and the tavern was still closed at the time).
The beach is one of the destinations for naturists. On the north side of the beach, behind the tavern is a path to another beach where there is a place for naturism.
On the other side there is another beach but this area is fenced and it cannot be reached. On a hill here there are a dilapidated old house and the church of Agios Fokas. Below it and surrounded by what looks like quite high cliffs lies the other beach.
The distance from Agios Fokas Beach to the capital Chora is about 13 kilometer.
