Here's what holidays in Skala are like …long, long strolls on the 4km water's edge of a sand and shingle bay …honing your skills with bags of watersports … people-watching from pavement cafes on the narrow streets of a quay-side village …and enough restaurants and tavernas to choose a different place for every meal of your stay.
Summer holidays to Skala are certainly focused on that gently shelving beach, but there's plenty to enjoy away from the shoreline too – not least the fact that this busy place has retained a huge helping of character, along with all the friendliness of its former fishing port persona. Skala holidays see you sauntering past simple little cottages on intimate streets, joining the locals for a game of cards or backgammon, shopping for crafts and arty ceramics, or visiting the ruins of the Old Town – all but destroyed by the earthquake of 1953. Evenings are low key … a leisurely meal in a local taverna, a drink or two in a favourite bar …an easy tempo, cheerfully cheap. Holidays to Skala may not be the hottest for nightlife, but they're ideal for couples and families.
