Things to Do in Skala

Holidaymakers come here for Skala’s beach scene. You could spend hours getting stuck into some water sports or whiling away your time in its top-notch restaurants. If you’re in the mood for seeing the glittering world beneath the waves, hop on a glass-bottomed boat and explore Skala’s coastline. If you head just a couple of kilometres to Potamaki Beach, you might even spot an elusive loggerhead turtle or two. If you’re up for some sightseeing, visit Argostoli and check out the museums and St George’s Castle or rent a car and go to the secluded Byzantine churches. With its green landscape, traditional Greek cuisine and flour-soft sands, it’s no wonder Skala and the Panorama Hotel is one of Kefalonia’s most popular holiday spots.
