History on your doorstep
You don’t have to go far to glimpse Skala’s past – a third-century Roman villa sits close to the beach. A little up the hill you’ll find the ruins of the old village that’s been replaced by the new town. And there’s an ancient temple dedicated to Apollo just down the road.
It’s a knockout
Skala boasts 3km of sand and shingle beach, fringed with pretty pine trees. The town comes with a full back-up of beach bars, while the south end’s perfect for secluded sunbathing. Evenings are spent sampling traditional Greek dishes in local tavernas, or sipping a cocktail in one of the chilled-out beach bars.
