Fiskardo (or Fiscardho or Fiskardho!) is a bustling, crescent shaped harbour with brightly painted houses, harbour side cafes and restaurants. Located on the northern tip of Kefalonia, Fiskardo is a well protected bay and also a very popular one. Fiscardo offers a wide selection of cafe bars, restaurants and tavernas to enjoy as well as an array of shops, cash points, showers and a regular ferry service are available in the port. On the pontoons you will be able to fill up with water. It has been said that Fiskardo is the most scenic spot in the Ionian island sailing area and certainly one of the best opportunities to take some photographs!

If you are planning on visiting in the high season it is best to arrive early in the afternoon to avoid disappointment in finding a place to moor. You may wish to moor in the bay just south of Fiskardo, explore the caves and take a dinghy into town. Dinghies and outboards are provided with every Island Sailing yacht charter in Greece. Sailing south choose from many inlets where you can stop, swim and relax before heading to Agios Euphemia, from where you can visit the famous underground caves of Lake Melissani.  

Whilst approaching Fiscardho keep an eye out for Kevin from ‘Sailing Pics’ – a fantastic photographer and sailor Kevin can take photos of you sailing your yacht into port with no obligation to buy. If you stop by his booth when you moor up he can show you what he has taken and you can buy a CD containing the whole photo-shoot of you, on your yacht, on the sea - a fantastic holiday souvenir. If you don’t want to buy them, no problem you don’t have to. For more information visit www.sailingpics.com
