It will take you 20-30 minutes to walk along the coast road to the village of Scala. It is a lovely walk in the early evening and if you prefer you can catch a taxi back later.

You will be made to feel very welcome in the village and it won’t take you long to find your way around.

There is a good choice of restaurants and bars along the coast road and in the village. Remember that Pelagos Bay also serves food in the evening to save you going out and we are also situated beside two very popular traditional Greek tavernas.
