Planning Skala Holidays
Located in the Eastern European Time Zone (GMT + 2), Skala enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate, with plenty of sunshine and mild winters. Although the city is pleasant all year-round, plan Skala holidays from May to August, when the warm temperatures and long hours of sunshine provide ideal swimming and sightseeing weather. Reach Skala via bus connections from nearby Argostoli or Poros. Once there, get around by car, the Skala tourist train, or on foot; Skala is ideal for hiking enthusiasts.
Exploring on Skala Holidays
With its vivid natural beauty, charming village and cultural attractions, Skala holidays offer plenty of options for holidaymakers. The first stop for most visitors is Skala’s stunning stretch of beach, accessible via the central square of the village. Gleaming with golden sand and dotted with hidden coves, a dip in the beach’s turquoise waters is the highlight of many Skala holidays. Visitors can take a cruise on a glass-bottomed boat to explore Skala’s shipwrecks and marine life, and try snorkelling or scuba-diving.
Further along the coast is Potamaki, a conservation site and haven for rare loggerhead turtles, where visitors can participate in night-time turtle watches. The bustling main street of the village hosts quaint shops and a diverse selection of taverns and restaurants. At the edge of the village, holidaymakers can visit the historic ruins of Roman buildings, complete with well-preserved mosaics, located next to a scenic olive grove. A mile out of town is the site of a 7th century temple dedicated to the Greek god Apollo.
