Nine Muses Hotel

Close to the beach and with a relaxation pool on site, there’s a distinct village-feel about the Nine Muses. Here, flower-lined pathways and pastel-coloured buildings nestle against the shoreline.

There are two pools and a children’s pool, too. These are flanked by spacious terraces complete with sunbeds and parasols. You’ll also find a restaurant overlooking the bay where you’ll dine on divine Mediterranean food.

The entertainment has a distinctly Greek feel, too. You can expect ouzo, meze and folk dancers. For something a little more competitive, head to the sports bar.

Resort Summary

Skala is an Ionian Island known for idyllic natural beaches, fresh local food and pretty countryside villages. Offering a Blue Flag beach complete with isolated coves along the coast and pine forest views behind, Skala is the perfect place for snap-happy travellers on cheap holidays to Kefalonia. With year-round sunshine, you can escape the crowds out of season too – a time when holidaymakers come to enjoy hiking and relaxed coastal walks.
