Skala holidays take you to a popular resort on the south-eastern coast of Kefalonia. It lies twenty-six miles from the capital Argostoli. Skala was once a small fishing harbour with an inland village of the same name. The village was destroyed by the massive earthquake that hit the island in 1953. The coastal village has grown from its fishing roots into a seaside town. Its popularity lies in its two mile stretch of sand and shingle beach and its calm waters. Those with toddlers need to be aware that the beach drops fairly steeply into the sea. There are plenty of water sports for the more energetic holidaynmaker and boat trips are available from the harbour. You can explore the island’s own coastline or visit neighbouring islands such as Zante. The most popular attraction on the island are the Drogarati Caves. Deep beneath the ground there is an amazing display of stalactites and stalagmites, illuminated for dramatic effect. If you visit Sami, you’ll see the beach where Captain Corelli’s Mandolin was filmed. Kefalonia is a scenically beautiful island and if you wish to make the most of your visit, car hire is recommended.
Skala has a good range of hotels and apartments that accommodate most budgets. Some accomodation blocks can be rather utilitarian in style but nevertheless provide all modern amenities and good service. Be sure to look at the all-inclusive tariffs as they may be considerably cheaper than you’d imagine, and make good economic sense. This is often the case when travelling with children as constant demands for food drinks and snacks can be costly. When it comes to eating, the choice is vast. Large numbers of restaurants, bistros, bars and pubs provide a diverse menu that satisfies both palate and pocket. Nightlife is fairly lively with a number of music bars that remain open from dusk to dawn. While there is good provision of shops, if greater choice is needed, take the bus to Argostoli.
Cheap Skala holidays can be taken from April until October with temperatures rising from twenty to thirty during the summer months. Several budget airlines fly direct to Kefalonia from regional airports. You can check on the Cheeky Trip website to see if there is a service from your own local airport. Transfers take roughly ninety minutes.
