  • I would definitely recommend beach shoes. We had a lovely day here. For kids, the sheer drop into the water (due to the '53 earthquake) means adult supervision necessary.  more »
  • Clean and beautiful beach, find a spot throw a towel down and chill or find a subbed and parasol and enjoy the moment either way Skala beach caters for everyone. Has beach bars and leisure activities ...  more »
  • Beach on a scale not nothing special stands out from many other beaches in Greece. Around the beach rozciagają to buildings with local infrastructure (hotels, taverns and shops). No less on the beach has no toilets, only changing rooms. The beach itself does not knocks when it comes to sand, or rather yellow gravel mixed with sand. The benefits of renting a Deckchair is niedorgie (6 euros for a set of 2 Sun beds and an umbrella is a very friendly price). However, there are two things which you can experience beautiful weather, and beautiful Emerald water.

  • Really nice seaside resort. The town is small with mainly souvenir shops and restaurants as are most places here. Food quality is very good and value also. The beach is mainly a gritty sand but nevertheless a lovely beach to swim and fish from. Sunbeds are readily available. Sorry but the photos are on my camera not on my phone.
  • Excellent beach.. Long (like 2km), sand beach, with beautiful sea views, with couple of great bars, offers sunbeds. Everything you want in one place. No one in Kefalonia will mention it, but we felt sorry for not taking more time on this beach. We went to visit almost every beach on the island and this one was superb! Enjoyed it very much! 😍
  • My favorite beach, has sandy sections, easy to find an uncrowded spot. Crystal clear water. And a fun town that values its visitors.
  • The beach is a couple of kilometres long and curves gently. Comprised mainly of small sea polished stones and dark sand, it slopes gently before shelving quite steeply into the sea, adults will be shoulder deep in a few paces. At the Skala end there are tavernas with sunbeds on the beach, moving away from Skala the beach is open though prone to having seaweed washed ashore. There are views of the mainland and Zakynthos. Some watersports are available and boat trips depart directly from the beach. The beach itself is clean and holds blue flag status.
  • Spacious and nice setting with respect to town. Plenty of beach with good area left at low tide. Convenient local resources.
