About the location
Fiskardo is one of Kefalonia's prettiest towns. Backed by cypress-clad hills and pastel buildings, this colourful resort provides the kind of views they make postcards from. Its chic bars and restaurants attract an A-list fan base - you'll often see smart yachts moored up in the harbour, alongside the fishing boats. Tavernas set out tables and chairs along the waterfront, serving up local favourites like fresh calamari and shots of ouzo. The waterfront is guarded by the town’s twin landmarks; its famous lighthouses, one dating back to the Venetians and one a product of the Victorians. There are two curved, shingle beaches for soaking up some sunshine, and it’s well worth putting your history buff hat on to explore the 12th-century chapel on Fiskardo’s outskirts.
Transfer time
