“Beautiful relaxing beach”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Skala beach is one of my very favourites. Long sandy/shingle golden stretch. Never crowded or noisy. Pebbles into the sea can take a little getting used to under foot but they are multicoloured and very pretty. Water is clear and warm with small fish. Lovely :)

“Nice large beach”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Skala beach is a very pleasant shingle/sand beach with plenty of amenities and a lifeguard during the summer. It can get busy during the summer months but there was always plenty of the room. As to be expected the water quality is superb.

“Stony”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Only used the beach immediately opposite my hotel. You need beach shoes but the water is clean, clear, and warm. There are much better beaches further along.

“Beautiful long beach”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This beach stretches so far that wherever you sit you aren't surrounded by other people. The sea is so beautiful and clear with lots of fish swimming around. The sea is warm and I really loved swimming in it. There are bars and places to buy drinks and snacks very close to the beach. It is really hot so advisable to buy a parasol! Skala beach is a must-see!
