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.
Get out of town with these interesting Skala side-trips: Drogarati Cave (in Chaliotata), St George's Castle (in Peratata) and Sami (Port of Sami, Antisamos Beach, &more). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Skala Beach, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Ainos National Park, and take an in-depth tour of Roman Villa of Skala.
