Kefalonia is an island in the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. It's marked by sandy coves and dry rugged landscapes. Its capital, Argostoli, is built on a hillside overlooking a narrow harbor. The indented coastline of Kefalonia is made up of limestone cliffs, bays and short strips of white sand, like Myrtos Beach in the north. A few beaches are only accessible on foot or via narrow twisting roads.

Fiskardo, on the northern tip, was one of the few villages to escape the 1953 earthquakes that destroyed most settlements on Kefalonia. It still has 18th-century Venetian-style houses, painted in pastel colors, and a picturesque harbor lined with cafes. The ruins of a 16th-century Venetian fort stand on the peninsula above the quiet northwestern village of Assos. The Drogarati Caves are filled with stalactites. Melissani Cave’s sunlit underground lake can be explored by boat. Inland, Mount Ainos National Park has pine forests, hiking trails and sweeping views.

The beautiful resort of Skala lies 37 km southeast of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia and 12 km from Poros village. Skala was built after the major earthquake of 1953 that destroyed the ancient village of Skala. The ruins of Old Skala still survive today.The village is also home to ruins of a Roman Villa dating back from the 2nd century BC with magnificent mosaic floors 


Skala stands out for its natural beauty and unspoiled green landscape as well as crystalline waters and stunning coves. The long beach is located right above the resort and is surrounded by lovely pine tree forests and rock formations.It is a famous destination for the summer offering plenty of modern amenities mostly gathered on the main street of the village and along the beach road.
