Skáli (also called Skála) lies on Skálafjřrđur-inlet’s west-side.
In Skála lies the largest shipyard of the Faroe Islands. Many of the ships in the Faeroese fleet are built here. As not many new ships are built on the Faroe Islands these years the shipyard is mostly doing repairs now. In addition to ships from the Faeroese fleet also Russian ships are visiting the shipyard in Skála to get overhauled. In 1994 the ship ‘Vasily Adonkin’ from Murmansk came to Skála for repairs. Unfortunately the ships owner in Murmansk went bankrupt and the ship with a crew of 8 was left in Skála. The men on the ship didn’t get any pay and they didn’t have the money for a flight-ticket back to Murmansk. After 2 years on-board the ship the poor guys left back home. The shipyard sold the ship for scrapping in Spain in 1998.

Since the mid 1970'ties an annual civic-festival has been held in Skála. Football and boat-racing in the characteristic Faroese rowing-boats are the main attractions. The festival
runs in the last week-end of May.

In the 16th century the church in Skali was washed into the inlet with all the churchgoers in it due to a heavy shower.
