Things to Do in Skala
The possibilities of filling a day on a Skala holiday are simply endless. Take a cruise on one of the resort's popular glass bottomed boats along the coast. Here you can gaze at the diverse marine life and discover the hidden treasures of the Mediterranean Sea. One of the most spectacular gems of the area is Potamaki Beach, located just a few kilometres along the coast from Skala itself. The beach is famous for being home to the increasingly rare loggerhead turtle and is a special conservation area.
If you want to explore further afield, Kefalonia itself has many interesting attractions, historic monasteries and archaeological sites of interest. Rent a car and take in the fascinating Archaeological Museum of Argostoli, the Monastery of Saint Gerasimos and the Castle of St. George.
Skala Beach Holidays
Crystal clear waters hug the long expanse of soft glistening sand and shingle beach at Skala. Impeccably maintained this blue flag beach is a haven for beach lovers and a mecca for water sports fans with no shortage of fun to be had above and below the waves of the inviting seas. Why not learn to scuba dive on your beach holiday to Skala and take part in a diving expedition to explore the fascinating underwater world. Stroll along the waterfront and find the idyllic spot to chill out over leisurely lunch or cool drinks. With plenty of bars and tavernas dotted along the four kilometre stretch of beach you can try a different one each day. Turtle Bay about three kilometres away is the nesting ground for the protected loggerhead turtles and well worth a visit for a change of scene.

Hop on a bus to the bustling capital Argostoli for a fix of retail therapy where you can browse around the great shops to pick up that holiday bargain or just amble about and see the sights.
See the famous Drapanos Bridge in Argostoli, or why not head into the hills behind the town to view the Acropolis of Krani. Nightlife in Skala has an easy tempo and generally centred around the friendly tavernas. A few late night music bars are on hand if you feel the need to dance the night away.
