If you have your own transport, go and see this grave -just to have a goal, it is not that interesting-and especially enjoy the broccoli landscape of dwarf oaks shaped by the goats

Drive to the grave is quite pleasant, in the dry hills of the southern part of the island. Grave as such is in rather good condition, but some effort should be done to clearly mark where it is located (poor signage and only in Greek)....More

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.
