I have just returned from Skala where I picked up a leaflet for Bubbles, the local dive operator. They have an office in the Main Street but as this was always closed I tried to phone the owner to try to book a day's diving but he wasn't interested. He told me that he was too busy as it was peak season and to try again the following week - then he hung up! So instead I went to Agia Efimia where Aquatic World were excellent. I had 4 dives over two days. All by RIB boat to a different site around the local bay each time. My wife a non-diver was made welcome too and joined us on the boat at no charge. The guides were excellent ensuring that the large groupers, ancient underwater steps, WW2 mine, amphora and ballast weights from a Roman wreck were all seen.
This is definitely the best taverna in Skala and is a pleasant surprise at the back of the square behind the Roman Villa. Very friendly with excellent Greek dishes and all reasonably priced. Importantly it retained a calm and peaceful atmosphere even in high season when some of the other local restaurants turned eating into an urgent production line process. The specials are just that! Denise even suggested one or two starters that did not appear on the menu at all.
