Some 20 years ago, or so, Skala was a quiet farming /fishing village, until the tourist industry took a hold. It has now turned into a resort that many people choose to visit in the summer. The ever expanding resort of modern Skala, seems to be stretching further along the coastline year by year.
Beside of the beautiful scenery, the long sandy fully organized beach and the countless options for a pleasant stay, you can also find everything you need.
Skala Beach Kefalonia
The lovely gently shelving beach is Skala’s main attraction. Visitors can enjoy the most glorious 3 km long sandy and pebble beach which has a blue flag and is flanked by fragrantly tall pine trees.
On the beach you will find plenty of sun beds, umbrellas to hire and water sports including Paragliding & jet skis if you are feeling adventurous.
As the beach is vast you do not get the impression that it is overcrowded and you will always be able to find your ‘own piece’ of beach.
Not far along the coast is Potamaki Beach , this is a haven for the rare loggerhead turtles, and has now been declared a conservation area.
Night-time ‘turtle watches’ are organised for those who wish to observe the creatures without threatening their survival.
Skala Resort Kefalonia
In the summer months Skala is a popular holiday destination and has an abundance of tavernas, bars and gift shops, together with the all year round supermarkets, bakery and pharmacy. There is also a cash point machine. Most of these are located in the main street and the smaller streets branching off.
There is plenty to do in this former fishing village however it has managed to remain friendly.
Surrounded by natural beauty, you can take in this solitary place by taking relaxing walks along the beach, having the time to read a book, reflect, and rejuvenate – tranquility at its best.
You can explore the narrow streets where you will find basic fishing cottages, or stop off at one of the many cafes or make friends with the locals over a game of cards.
Nightlife in Skala is pretty good by Kefalonian standards as there are plenty of bars and tavernas for you to choose from.
We guarantee you unforgetable vacations..
