We have just returned from Skala staying at Ocean View Apartments. We had a fabulous time as did our two children aged 6 and 8. It was very hot and the air conditioning was a must. The pool was great for the children, very clean and well kept. The apartments are ideally situated very close to the beach and town centre. The beach is great for children, I have never swum in such clear, warm water.There are even little fish to watch, though they do like to nibble at your toes.We hired a car from the airport which is a must if you want to see some of the island. We went with some Greek friends and they too love the island, it really is very beautiful. The children had to share a bed which was not ideal as they do not have 4 bed apartments. Perhaps bring one nice large towel as they are rather thin. We did not use the kitchen cupboard at all. Every morning we went to get fabulous crossiants from the local bakery. There are lots of great restaurants nearby and no one got ill from the food or water! We will certainly be returning one day.
