Skala beach was beautiful and you can hire sun beds through the hotels for around 6€ each. The beach itself is very stoney and harsh on the feet, so I would recommend wearing shoes on your walk along it. We also took a five minute cab ride from Skala beach to a neighbouring beach called Mounda which cost about 10€... More

Beach was uncrowded and allowed for a relaxing couple of days. If you wanted to be active there are were a number of things to do, but I just wanted to chill.

We came onto the beach during our day trip to Skala, and found there to be lots of room to sit on the sand close to the sea, you could hire sun loungers if you wanted too,with a beach Taverna serving drinks and snacks. the access to the sea was easy, with gently sloping shingle,and the water was clean and...

You need to pick your spot for young children as you will need to find some sand away from the shingle and sharp grit, slopes away so you really have to watch youngsters as well. There are plenty of amenities near by with bars and places to eat handily placed. There are better beaches around.
