The Skala Women's Rock Group hosts daily morning swims out to the large rock in the harbor. Meeting at 10 am outside Zorba the Buddha Bar, the swim is an ideal way to meet other female tourists and make fast friends. Supported by strong swimmers and a number of canoes, it's a long swim but very safe and invigorating. The women often have a late breakfast together afterwards. A small ceremony takes place at the end of every week where participants are awarded a certificate. Don't forget your goggles!
