Decent shoes are a must as the path around the rock has some gravel in parts. Great photo opportunity at the little church down the front towards the caldera. Walking back up all those stairs is great fitness for a holiday where you're doing a lot of eating and relaxing!
If you can drag yourself out of bed by 8 or 9am this is absolutely worth the views and you may be lucky enough to be alone or only pass a few people on your way.
When you come back up from the rock there are many options for walking back along the caldera, so you can explore the maze of paths if you like.
One nice place to check out is another church which hangs over the edge of the caldera. You can see it from Skaros Rock and no one was there when we went around 9am. I'd suggest just stopping here if the idea of all those steps is too much after all that Greek food!
