    Beach Report by Eric:
    Skala beach, have been to this resort and beach on holiday three times in
    the last four years and can only say that it gets better and better. My
    opinion of the beach is very clean, makeup of sand and small to
    medium sized pebbles is good, sea is crystal clear, access is
    superb also sea is great for snorkeling loads of sealife. Overall
    opinion brilliant all together a beach to look forward too.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
