Fiskardo

Fiskardo is described by Rod Heikell as the “Chelsea” of Kefallonia, extremely popular and fashionable. As a consequence it is extremely busy, hundreds of visiting yachts of all sizes, local fishing boats, dinghies & ribs buzzing around and then to top it all the local ferries who’s approach is just to come in at full steam ahead and if anything is in the way, just keep their hand on the horn until it scares everybody and everything out of their way.

We arrived around lunchtime and having hunted around the town quay decided to tie up on the north side of the bay away from the noise.

Fiskardo certainly has real charm even if it is touristy; we found a great local bakery and some lovely bars and restaurants, including a great bar at the far end of the bay, looking East from the island.

We also took a short walk around the headland where there is an abandoned lighthouse which you can still climb up and enjoy the amazing view.

It is certainly a beautiful and memorable place but we were also quite glad to leave and get away from the hustle & bustle
