Fiskardo: The south quay of the harbour, with its colourful buildings

A beautiful place of multi coloured houses ringing the clear bay, set at the foot of dense pine clad slopes.

Fiskardo escaped the ravages of the 1953 earthquake and now enjoys a high level of protection from development. This gives a rather up market air and a number of the Hollywood set have visited.

It’s a very popular stop for both Flotillas and Bareboat charterers too, so you’ll need to get in early to get a prime spot on the quay. Later arrivals can usually find somewhere around the bay from where it’s only a short walk to the village.

There’s a small beach in the bay, but better options about 20 minutes walk away. For the more adventurous, there’s a dive school in the village.

For such a small place, it’s surprisingly well equipped with supermarkets, bakeries, banks with ATM’s and a post office, as well as, naturally, a good range of restaurants and bars. There’s even a small night club but don’t worry, this isn’t a place for loud music late in to the night – it’s all rather more genteel.
