Skala Beach is one of the “hidden” beaches in the area of Ammoudia. It’s just 4 km from the national road of Igoumenitsa – Preveza.
The road leading to the beach is paved except the last 100 meters that are located among the trees and end up in a place fit to park several cars. From the moment you leave the national road Igoumenitsa – Preveza at the point where there is an exit to Valanidorahi village follow the signs that show “Ormos Odysseus“.The exit from the highway is on the contrary by the side of the sea, but you will then pass under it and will go in the right direction.
The beach is fairly lower than parking in the woods. To get down you need to follow a short footpath a few meters and then descend about 35 steep stairs that will lead you to beach.
Before you visit the beach,you can admire the beauty of nature. The color of the water reminds a swimming pool and the rocks with the trees on the backs offer a very beautiful sight. A familiar sight is a few anchored sailboats. Seems to be a favorite destination for swimming in the many owners of small sailboats.
On the beach the sand is fine and grey. Neither seaweed or rocks or sea urchins. The waters relatively warm and very shallow for a quite distance from the beach. Under these conditions, the swimming is delightful for young children.
The beach attracts every type of visitors (though not too many) or families with children and young groups of friends and couples. Canteen there is neither on the beach nor in the parking. The nearest is a kilometer further down the Ormos Odysseus Beach.
