As you get close to Fiskardo, the old lighthouse on the north headland is easily spotted. Over the years Fiskardo has become extremely popular due to its picture postcard looks. As a result it can be almost impossible to find quay space in July or August (but we do pride ourselves on our creative mooring techniques when required!).
If the main harbour is full, people often moor ‘stern-to’ the rocks on the north side of the harbour, which is a great option for any swimmers in the family.
We always aim to leave the previous days stop a little early and get there for lunchtime. It is about this time that the keen sailors are all rushing out to do their sailing leaving plenty of space on the quay.
The best elements to an overnight stay in Fiskardo are the restuarants, waterside cocktail spots and of course the people. One of our favourite spots to relax by the water is Theadora's cocktail bar and cafe. The panorama resturant and bar just outside the harbour is also a great spot that offers excellent views.
There are a number of excellent tavernas here and a much wider variety of choice than in other villages. Amongst our favourites - albeit a little outside of our often traditional choices - is a Thai restaurant in the backstreets. This offers a little something different for those on a two week flotilla, looking for something a little different.
There are a number of mini markets, bakeries, a post office and an ATM. There are a couple of small beaches just a 15-20 minute walk south from the village.
