Area Overview

Once a small fishing village, Skala has evolved into a modern seaside town. Skala’s Blue Flag beach is considered the best beach in southern Kefalonia. It stretches for 3 kilometres and there are secluded coves, rocks and caves to explore at the southern end. Above the beach you’ll find a 3rd century AD Roman villa, whilst there are also Roman ruins nearby such as a 7th-century BC Temple of Apollo. Many hikers come to the area to enjoy the coastal walk to Poros (8km), whilst at night people gather in the tavernas, restaurants and cafés situated along the main street that leads up to the beach.

Things To Do in Skala

  • Drogarati Cave: Kefalonia’s most famous attraction is thought to be 150 million years-old. Lined with stalagmites, it is 37 metres below ground.
  • Antisamos Beach: 45 minutes away in the town of Sami, you can visit the beautiful bay where the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin was shot.
  • Feast Day of the Virgin Agrilia: Visit the Panagia Agrilion monastery to experience this religious festival that that has taken place since the 15th century. The ceremony is followed by music and dancing, old-fashioned feasting and wine.
  • Watersports: At Skala beach you’ll find a full-range of watersports including jet skiing paragliding, windsurfing and pedalos. There’s also a diving centre that offers organised snorkelling trips and scuba diving programmes for all levels.
  • Turtle Watch: A few kilometres down the coast at Potamaki Beach you’ll find a conservation area that is home to the rare Loggerhead turtles that lay their eggs in the sand here between June and August. Organised turtle watches are the best way to see the turtles without disturbing them.

When to go to Skala

Good weather is all but guaranteed during the summer months in Greece, with temperatures averaging above 30°C, and approximately 12 hours of sunshine a day. In July and August there is hardly a drop of rain.

If you prefer a slightly cooler temperature then the average temperature in spring and autumn is in the mid-20s, but you’ll still get plenty of sun. These times of year are especially popular with hikers and sightseers.
