Holidays in

A sun-soaked seaside town

Located on the south coast of Kefalonia, Skala is home to a dazzling 3-kilometre long, sand-and-shingle Blue Flag beach, making it the perfect spot for days of sunbathing and swimming. Skala holidays offer plenty of history, too – there’s a beautiful Roman villa near the beach that dates back to the 3rd century, and you can explore the ruins of an old village and nearby temples.

If your idea of a holiday is kicking back with a chilled beer or cocktail then don’t worry – Skala’s main street is lined with great bars and restaurants serving Greek classics and other enticing dishes from around the world. In the daytime you’ll have your pick of water sports and, if you’re keen to stretch your legs, holidays to Skala also offer a selection of undulating hiking trails, including an 8-kilometre coastal walk to the small town of Poros.

Your Skala questions, answered

It’s the perfect resort for those who enjoy the buzz of other people, with easy access to water sports, plenty of restaurants and a lovely bit of history.

Skala is sleepy in winter, but come April it springs into life as one of Kefalonia’s most popular resort towns. It’s hottest in July and August.

Plenty – Skala is located on the south coast of the island, where there are lots more resort towns and little beaches to discover if you’re keen to explore.
