What's Skala like

Skala is one of the more popular tourist resort on the south eastern tip of Kefalonia. It’s around 35km from the capital Argostoli, that would take approximately 50 minutes in a car or taxi and it’s about the same duration to and from the airport.

The best thing about Skala is that it offers absolutely everything the holiday maker needs. There’s a wide selection of hotels to suit all budgets and tastes. There’s dozens of restaurants for you to choose from, many of which are on the sea front with lovely views of the Ionian sea and there’s also plenty of vehicle rental shops, travel agents, souvenir shops, bars and as if that wasn’t enough there’s the fabulous Skala beach too.

Skala is often criticised for lacking a traditional Greek feel but that’s not really why you come to Skala, most people who come here do so as they want everything on the doorstep with minimal effort or fuss. This is a package holiday destination so if you’re looking for a simple get away with all facilities including a huge beach within walking distance then Skala is a great option.

Skala nightlife

The evenings in Skala, like the days, have a vast array of options, it’s mainly restaurants and hotels with entertainment rather than clubs but there are a couple of late night venues that could be called clubs. In general, as Skala caters to the package holiday market with lots of families you’ll find that it’s a low key place with the evenings spent enjoying a nice meal and then a glass of local wine or beer rather than going out partying late into the night.

What to do around Skala

A slight downside to Skala is it’s location on the island, as Kefalonia is one of the larger Greek islands and Skala is right in the bottom corner, it can take a while to get to some of the islands attractions like the fishing village of Fiskardo, which is about 2 hours drive away and the always popular Myrtos beach which is an hour and a half in the car.

From this end of the island you are not too far from mount Ainos so if you fancy getting out into the countryside and enjoying some of the local wildlife then this could be a good option for you, if you do decide to do that then you could also head on a bit further to the castle of Saint George as well.

There’s not much in the way of historical sites or culture in the town of Skala itself, about your only option is the Roman villa of Skala which is an old house with a mosaic floor that’s been preserved. It’s a small site and doesn’t have much to see, it’s just off the sea front though so easy to pop in and take a brief look at. There’s no signage or information about it though which is a little disappointing.
