The village jewel in Kefalonia's glittering crown, diminutive Fiskardo gains a lot of attention for its natural splendor: where pristine, ice-cream colored villas curl around a lively central harbor. Visit during the shoulder seasons (spring or autumn) when it's still wonderfully balmy but less frequented.
Perfectly manicured fishing village Fiskardo is home to a serene natural harbor that lures many a superyacht charter to its shores. But its wonderful anchorage is not the only reason guests flock here. A visual delight from the moment one arrives, it's hard not to be charmed but its beauty. On blossoming bougainvillea-lined streets lie upscale restaurants and humble seaside tavernas, all offering a freshly plucked seafood tapestry that taste all the more divine when coupled with Fiskardo's gorgeous vistas.
Picturesque Fiskardo manages quite a rare feat, managing to harmoniously combine a wholesome fishing village ambience with a real cosmopolitan buzz.
This little Ionian spot is not quite so secret anymore, and can get busy in the summer. Visiting in the morning or at night time after ferries arrive to retrieve tourists is best if you are looking to elude the crowds.
The largest of the Ionian islands, Kefalonia's abundance of jaw-droppingly pretty beaches, calm bays and its multitude of sublime villages makes it a popular yacht rental in Greece destination.
