Spread across a beautiful stretch of golden sand and backed forests of pine trees, Skala is one of the most popular resorts in Greece. Located on the southern coast of Kefalonia, it is the largest resort on the island with a huge choice of accommodation.
Skala is a known beauty spot. Set at the base of the mountains, the pristine sands of Skala beach stretch for over 2 miles. A gently shelving shoreline with warm waters, it is rarely over-crowded and is well-equipped with loungers, parasols and water-sports centres. The nearby Potomaki Beach is also particularly beautiful. A nesting ground for the famous loggerhead turtle, it is a protected conservation area.
The main strip of town is just 100m from the beach. A pedestrianized stretch of local craft shops and boutiques, tavernas and restaurants, it is a lively spot in the evenings. An area rich in history, it is also well-worth taking some time out from the beach and town centre to explore the region. Just outside of the resort are the ruins of a temple dedicated to the god Apollo, dating back to the 6th century B.C. The town is also home to some Roman ruins dating to the 3rd century A.D, featuring some beautiful mosaic floors.
