Skala is a sandy beach on the north-eastern side of the island. On the beach at Skala are hotels, restaurants and cafeterias. Swim at the sandy beach of Megalochori, Dragonera, that is surrounded by pine forests. By following the narrow path from the harbour at Skala westward, we first come to the beach of Skliri and further on to the totally secluded beach of Chalikiada. Lastly, Aponisos is a shallow beach between the private island of Aponisos and Agistri.
The impressive church of Agion Anargyron with its blue dome, towers above Skala (its feast day is 1st July). Zoodochos Pigis is the island’s metropolis, situated in Megalochori and it is worth a visit to admire the remarkable murals inside (its feast day is the Friday after Easter and a fair is held). Above Megalochori, in a thick pine forest, stand the chapels of Agion Panton and Agion Theodoron. The view from the church of Panaghia (Holy Virgin) at Metochi will make up for the walk. You can climb up to visit it (its feast day is 15 August). Another two churches well worth a visit are the Church of Agia Kyriaki at Limenaria and Agios Nikolaos. It is also worth visiting the various archaeological remains at the Cultural Centre in Megalochori.
