Skala

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Ionian Islands  /  Cephalonia  /  Skala
Mass tourism has transformed the once-sleepy village of Skala into a modern seaside resort, its major attraction a well-developed beach that happens to be one of the longest and sandiest on the island of Cephalonia. At the southern end of the beach you can explore a network of secluded grottos and coves, tranquil spots for private picnics. Skala's main street offers a string of fine restaurants and traditional taverns where you can mingle with the locals and treat your taste buds to local seafood specialties. If you need some things to do outside of town, consider hiking to a nearby fishing village or exploring the area's Roman ruins.
