Skala holidays are growing steadily in popularity but have retained their relaxed village atmosphere. The rugged and unspoilt scenery along the glimmering coastline and an attractive waterfront lined with tavernas, keep visitors returning to this area.
Still oozing a relaxed village vibe; traditional tavernas complement sophisticated bars in the popular seaside resort of Skala in Kefalonia. Holidays to Skala revolve around the blue flag beaches, vast expanses of both shingle and sand and are much loved by couples and beach lovers. The area boasts a three kilometre stretch of sublime beach, bordered by fragrant pine trees. For peace and quiet, head to the southern end of the beach where you’ll love the rocks and caves, perfect for exploring.
Knock on Apollo’s door at the ancient temple and take a stroll up the hill to see the ruins and a glimpse into how Skala once looked, long before it evolved into the vibrant new town it is today. Or why not pop on your hiking boots and take the eight kilometre walk to Poros to explore another village and the beaches there?
