As you gaze out across the harbour from your bar on the water's edge at Skala, you will see, as we did, a rocky hillside on the opposite side of the bay. You may wonder, as we did, if there would be a good view from there. Here is your answer!
We scrambled about on the mountain to look down on the bay and town of Skala and beyond to the monastery above the town and the three windmills on the ridge summit.
From this viewpoint, you can easily notice how sheltered the almost circular bay is, making it an ideal harbour. You can also see that Skala itself is on a very narrow neck of land: you can even see the sea on the far side of the island here - in fact it only takes a few minutes to walk from one side of the island to the other.
