Skala houses the majority of hotels, apartments and rooms for tourists to Agistri. Its bustling centre has a large choice of places to eat, drink, swim and sunbathe.
The sandy coastline wraps itself around the length of Skala from its port to far beyond the heart of this lively town. Children will relish the sandy beaches which shelve gently into the sea with no sudden drops in depth. Parents will experience true relaxation as they bask in the sun and in the knowledge their little ones can play safely.
All the beaches are served by the nearby cafes with refreshments throughout the day.
Skala has a unique combination of quiet spots for romantic or peaceful evenings and busy bars and tavernas for a livelier holiday experience. The tavernas provide a wealth of choice from fresh, fresh fish to the traditional ‘meze’ menus for which Greece is so well known. Agistri is famous for its fresh octopus and visitors can see many tavernas cooking them slowly on the barbeque with their luscious aroma filling the air.
The bars are filled with friendly staff keen to ensure its customers are thoroughly spoilt day and night! Learn how to play ‘tavli’ – Greek backgammon, join in the impromptu nights of singing and Greek dancing which can happen when you least expect it!
Skala’s port is the arrival point for all ferries from the Athens’ port of Piraeus to Agistri and is also served by the island’s own Agistri Express several times a day.
