About the location
Surrounded by pine trees and backed by scenic mountain landscapes, Skala is one of Kefalonia's best-kept secrets. This fishing village turned holiday resort has the flavour of rural Greece, with an old town filled with a smattering of whitewashed tavernas, olive presses and a pretty, bell-topped chapel. Little craft shops selling hand-painted ceramics, jewellery and souvenirs let you take a piece of Skala home, and are lovely for a wander. A long sand-and-shingle beach is on hand for soaking up some sunshine, and the Potamaki Beach a couple of miles away is a famous conservation area for rare loggerhead turtles – you can even take turtle-watching trips to observe them. A mini train service is a great way to get around and sightsee, and Skala’s seafood-and-ouzo stocked tavernas are where to rub shoulders with locals in the evenings.
