One of Kefalonia’s most picturesque villages, you’ll be enchanted by the luxury yachts and colourful fishing boats bobbing in the harbour. Combined with the rugged hillsides of cypress trees and the pretty Venetian buildings, that contrast seamlessly against glistening white-pebble beaches, on holidays to Fiskardo.
Fiskardo holidays are like travelling back in time. This jewel in the crown of Kefalonia, located on the northern tip of the island, survived an earthquake in 1953 virtually unscathed as the tremor was thankfully absorbed by the bed of limestone under the village.
A former fishing village, Fiskardo is now a cosmopolitan resort, favoured by A-listers, as well as being a picturesque harbour village. Stroll through the narrow alleys feeling like you’ve stepped back in time and explore the myriad of tavernas, restaurants and cafes. Shop for souvenirs in the boutiques and make sure you spare some time to visit the small museum at the top of the harbour to see photos of how the village once looked. A traditional village by day; by night Fiskardo comes alive as the waterfront lights up. It’s easy to see why visitors return here with so much to see and do.
