The beautiful Adrina beach took her name after the only female pirate of the Greek seas. The popular and fearless pirate Adrina, which spread fear and terror throughout the North Aegean. The treasure she had collected was of immense value.

The story of pirate Adrina has remained alive throughout the years.

SKOPELOS PIRATE ADRINA

According to legend, Skopelos received many raids from pirates. After all, Skopelos’ location was ideal. Any boat departing from Thessaloniki would have to pass either through Skopelos-Alonissos or through Skopelos-Skiathos.

Blo Bay in Panormos was the point where pirates unloaded their boats as they were protected from the north winds. There, pirate Adrina also had her own ship.

After her success she returned to Panormos with her crew and her beloved. In order to celebrate their successful raid, the pirates went to Skopelos Town to bring wine and food. Adrina was alone in the harbor waiting for them. Anyway, everyone was scared of her and no local man dared approach her.

On the way to Chora, after climbing towards Murtero and crossing Alikia and Potami, the pirates arrived at Pefkia, on a hill where the chapel of Panagia Polemistria still stands today. There the Scopelites had a feast and danced.

The pirates came into the dance and began to sing a “different” song. The non-drunk people realized the mess and ran into hiding.

The evil was soon to begin and the pirates attacked. But as soon as the first local was killed, Virgin Mary appeared with a sword in her hand. Skopelos people gain strength in her image, hunted down the pirates and eventually killed all of Adrina’s companions together with her beloved.
