The sandy beaches of southern Kefalonia come every year Caretta caretta sea turtles to lay their eggs overnight in sand pits. Ecological groups that monitor the great ancient sea creatures, protect the nests with fences, as they belong to the vulnerable species of the animal kingdom. You will see the nests on the beach of Skala and especially on the nearby beach of Mounta. The small turtles hatch in about 55 days and are instinctively directed to the sea where they are led by the light of the horizon.
The wider area with the hidden coves and the abundant green has its own special character.Nearby beaches are Aragia, Mounta, and Potamakia.
