2nd holiday in Skala - 1st one in 2002 and we dined at the Pines a couple of times because the food was so superb. Just returned from 1 weeks holiday in Skala last week. We visited the Pines again - we were so hoping the food would be the same 2 years on - and it WAS !! My favourite dish was one called Lamp Klefetico - to DIE FOR !! It's a dish wrapped in foil so you cant mistake it - lamb, tomatoes, onions, potato and feta cheese - absolutely scrummy - you must try it ! Very reasonable to - I think it was about 8/9 euros. My partner's favourite dish was swordfish which also is a must it that's your thing. Yes, it can be expensive but we wasted so much money on cheaper places before, it's best to stick to waht you know ! Again, yes it can get very busy but that's only because the food and service is so damn good !
This beach took my breath away. I have never seen such a stunning beach with the most amazing, breath-taking, heart-stopping views. Crystal clear, azure blue waters, crashing waves which I could'nt stop staring at... definately has the WOW factor ! The sand was very clean, a nice little beach bar and about 4 beach showers which was really good. The only downside would be that it certainly is not safe for swimming. There is an extremely strong under current which was quite scary. Definately not safe for children. A must visit though
