Fiskardo Resort description

Fiskardo Resort Photo

Fiskardo the most northern town on the island is the jewel in the crown of Kefalonia. Pastel coloured Venetian building looking down on the fisherman preparing there nets for the next trip, Rows of boats tied along the L shaped waterfront running parallel with the shaded restaurants that line quay all the way along.
Due to the earthquake of 1953 much of Kefalonia's old architect was destroyed except for Fiskardo, which was passed by with much of the tremor absorbed through the bed of limestone it sits on. There is a small museum just at the top of the harbour with pictures of how the village was over the years, well worth a visit.

There are of course several boat trips available from the harbour, or why not try hiring your own motor boat and explore the horseshoe bays and lagoons often only accessible by boat.
Like the rest of the island the people are warm and friendly the restaurant prices can be a tad higher than elsewhere but itís worth it just for the setting alone.
There are several gift, home craft, ceramic and souvenir shops dotted about the village and itís worth exploring the side streets to find the hidden tavernas and cafes. Fiskardo is also and active ferry port with boats to Ithaki, Lefkada and Patra on the mainland.

More information on Fiskardo
Though there are many places to stay here hotels, studios and villas for rent most of the tour operators use Fiskardo as a day excursion from the main resorts. This is a truly beautiful place and not to be missed even if it is a 2 hour drive from the south of the island.

Fiskardo the Good
Stunning scenery, atmosphere, views from the restaurants and cafes the wild flowers and rugged landscape as you traverse across the mountains to the village.

Fiskardo the Bad
Some late night bars but nightlife stretched to the meals in the tavernas and restaurants generally itís a low-key affair. The distance if you are coming from the south of the island an average of 4 hours round trip without stops.
