  • Skala is a beautiful, friendly place their restaurants are all great we have had some lovely meals. The beach is absolutely gorgeous very clean, showers for after swimming, changing huts dotted about the place. Sun loungers and umbrellas all at a reasonable price. Nice to see they sort their rubbish loads of bins everywhere. Very safe swimming good for families.
  • Great Beach .. Crystal Clean.. It’s like swimming in an Aquarium with the amount of fish nibbling at your feet in the water ... 6 euros for an umbrella .. 2 giant beers and a big bottle of water 8 euros. Water can be choppy and wind can pick up jut it’s a great place to chill out !
  • Nice reasonably large beach with easy access. Sun beds and beach bar for refreshments. Close to resort centre and free parking. Down side...beach is shingle not sand and the sea shelves quite sharply so may not be ideal for small children. Rocks make it a bit difficult to get in and out with bare feet.
  • Is a big beach all around Skala. There are sunbeds and bars but you can bring your own umbrella. There are few people and the water is nice. A good place to relax and take a swim.
  • Lovely beach with plenty of space and great facilities nearby. Parking closely so long as you are reasonably early. Beach itself is made of small stones so beach shoes are a good idea. Fish restaurant at the end of the beach was excellent.
