Things to do in Skala, Kefalonia
Eleana Studios are a great self-catering base for exploring Skala and Kefalonia. Start with watersports on Skala’s huge beach – there’s everything from diving and snorkelling to paragliding, jet-skiing and windsurfing. For something more sedate, hop on a pedalo or glass-bottomed boat. A short drive away, Potamaki Beach is also worth a visit – but for a very different reason. This beach is a conservation area and home to rare loggerhead turtles. Join a special night trip to watch these magnificent animals lay their eggs in the sand. Back in Skala, wander around the souvenir shops for homemade crafts, leather goods, pottery and linens. And, while it’s not a party town, when the sun sets, the bars and tavernas create a fun, lively nightlife. It’s easy to see why Skala is such a popular resort. It brings together the best parts of Kefalonia holidays, but without the crowds. You can enjoy the delicious foods, lively bars and gorgeous views in your own time – and in a secluded setting.
