Skála, near the southernmost tip of the island, is the most highly developed tourist resort of the whole area, thanks to its long, sandy, well-organized beach and its crystal-clear water. Modern hotels have been built in the flat coastal strip, and holidaymakers come in their thousands.
Towards sunset the holiday makers take their vólta or evening stroll in the main street and along the beach, where there are numerous taverns, bars, coffee bars and souvenir shops.
The village is separated from the beach by a stand of pine trees, which offers relief from the sun and adds to the beauty of the beach. For those who want to explore the smaller beaches and secluded coves along the coast, boats, pedalos and canoes can be hired on the beach, and there is also a scuba diving school. On the beach all watersports are available.
Skala is located 42 km from the capital Argostoli and the airport.
