“Good but shingle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Lovely clean sea. Quiet beach. But not sand. So if your thing is walking on the fringe of the sea up and down, you just can't do it.

“Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Nice beach but prefer sand myself, small grit type stones, sunbeds ok with plenty of shade, close to Tavernas for lunch time snacks and beer.

“quiet unspoilt beech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Im not a beech person per se but at 5 Euro for two beds an umbrella and table it was well worth the value. Quiet beech not too hurried and plenty of places to eat and drink if you want to get out of the sunshine for an hour or two

“Shingle shallow beach with clear waters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Skala beach is a decent enough beach, and one of the better ones in the resort. The beach is quite gritty and made up of shingle and sandstone. The sea like most resorts on the island is very clear.

There are plenty of things to do in the surrounding area with sunbirds ranging from €5-8 with a range of choices from the bars nearby the taxi rank. Metaxa has to be the pick of the bunch with a good selection of drinks and food plus free wifi in the bar (some offer it on the beach).

The beach and the sea get slightly less crowded if you head towards Poros as well as going southbond depending upon how far you are willing to venture.

“Gorgeous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Fabulous beach but very stony so invest in beach shoes. The beach shelves very quickly and the water gets deep very quickly so beware!
