The small port village of Kamiros Skala is located at¬†the west coast of the Greek island of Rhodes, about 45 km southwest of the capital city.
The small harbour of Kamiros Skala (or Skala Kamirou) is famous mainly because¬†boats leave from here in the main tourist season to the nearby island of Halki (the journey there takes about 1 hour), and to the smaller, deserted island of Alinda (the journey takes about 30 minutes). Throughout the year, however, the harbour serves mainly as a safe haven for small fishing boats.
The name of the whole village is the same as of the harbour, but it is very small as it consists only of¬†a few small houses and pleasant taverns. We recommend visiting one of the local taverns to taste the specialties of freshly caught fish. The fishing tradition is still strong here. If you want to stay longer in Kamiros Skala, you can also get a room for rent from the locals.
There is a small pebbly to rocky beach close to the harbour, calm and with crystal clear sea. On the shore there also used to be a basilica with beautiful mosaics, but it was destroyed by the big sea waves and is now just ruins.
The fishing village of Kamiros Skala is located at¬†the west coast of Rhodes, south of the small resort of Mandriko and north of the well-preserved, Johannite castle of Kritinia. Tourists sometimes confuse the name of the harbour of Kamiros Skala (or Skala Kamirou) with the archaeological site of Kamiros, which lies about 13 km to the north from here.
