Back to Top of SKALA PageSKALA


Skala is set on a very long golden sandy beach on the southernmost tip of the island, 37 kms from the island's capital Argostoli and is one of the most popular resorts on Kefalonia.

The distinguishing feature of Skala is the forest of pine trees which separates the land from the sea. Its lovely beach is a mixture of sand and shingle which stretches for miles along the coast towards the resort and port of Poros 12 kms away. You have a choice of lively beachlife with its beachside snack bars, sunbed and beach umbrellas for hire and water sports, or you can opt for the quieter beach by walking along the shoreline until you find your own secluded piece of paradise.

In the village and resort of Skala you will find a selection of tavernas, restaurants,bars and supermarkets to cater for all your needs along the main street which leads down to a small square.

Skala is an ideal resort for walkers who can discover a wealth of natural beauty in the surrounding countryside and wonder at the Roman mosaic floors found in the middle of a sun-lit olive grove.

A column that was used as a pedestal for the chapel's aler can now be found in the Archaeological Museum in Argostoli.

Back to Top of SKALA PageRoman Villa in Skala

The remains of the Roman villa were accidentally discovered in 1944 by the owner of the land in which it was found. Excavations started in 1957. The villa belonged to a wealthy Roman in the 3rd century AD.

One of the mosaic floors depicts an altar with a sacrificial bull, a ram and a boar and a man about to kill the bull.
Another mosaic shows Fthonos or 'Envy' being attacked and eaten by four wild animals - lion, tiger, panther and leopard.

At a later period a church was built over part of the villa. The remains of the mosaic floors are today protected by glass and a walkway has been constructed around the viewing panels.

Open daily from 9-3 pm, with free entrance. Closed on Mondays
