Skala Oropou is linked with the road linking GR-1/E75 and Oropos down to the beach, as well as the roads to Kalamos and Malakasa. Skala Oropou is surrounded by olive trees, pasture farmlands, grasslands and hills. Pine trees and mountains dominate southward; farmlands are in valley areas. The South Euboean Gulf covers the northern edge, providing a panoramic view of the island of Euboea. Skala Oropou is located N of Athens, E of GR-1/E75 (Athens - Lamia - Thessaloniki) and north of Rafina. The Asopus River flows to its west and through Chalkoutsi. Beaches along with hotels, taverns and restaurants are along the coastline and are Skala Oropou's fame.
