The myth of Andrina
According to the myth, Andrina was a woman pirate who arrived with a ship full of men pirates at Skopelos in order to conquer it. The men got off at Panormos, while Andrina hid the boat in one of the two bays. When the pirates lost the battle, Andrina fell into the sea and drowned. This is how the two bays, Andrines, got their name.  

Drakondoschima
During the Roman and early Byzantine Times, Skopelos was used as an exile location, due to the dragon that lived on the island and was fed by people. One day, Riginos decided to fight against the dragon having as his only weapons a cross made of olive branches and a sword. Riginos managed to tear the earth in two parts with his sword and the dragon fell in the large hole he created. And this specific location is ever since called Drakondoschima, which means shape of a dragon in Greek.
