Don't look for any signs, but keep looking to your left as you drive down towards the naval base, its hidden amongst the olive groves. A peaceful setting that gives the grave a real sense of calm.

Brooke is part of Skyros newer history, pay a visit to his grave, if you have a car. At the grave you will read one of his famous poems Soldier. Place is isolated, but you will have beautiful views on your way there.

Getting there is a most beautiful trip and you really get a sense of 'Skyros' the island. I would highly recommend the trip, on the way you will see a few skyrion ponies.
