The most famous town on Kefalonia
The town of Fiskardo can be found at the very northern tip of Kefalonia. It is also a port from where you can go to Lefkada or Ithaca. The sheltered bay with the harbor is surrounded by many taverns. The historic center is on a hill to the south of the bay. Even further south is a second, smaller bay with a city beach. However, be aware that this is the stop for all boat trips, so after the boats land, hundreds of visitors will flock to the area looking for a place to have lunch.
Waterfront in Fiskard
Taverns and low picturesque houses surround the entire southern side of the main bay in Fiskard. You have a view of the bay and the boats from every place in the restaurant.
We head along the embankment in a northerly direction and soon have a beautiful view of the entire bay
View of Ithaca
From Fiskardo there is a beautiful view of nearby Ithaca. However, in historical times it was connected with Kefalonia
We continue along the walking path leading along the sea around the entire town and the view of the second bay slowly opens up.
The path continues to the ruins of the Roman cemetery
City beach in Fiskard
The city beach is more for refreshment than you would go here for it. Better beaches are located north of the city

Fiskardo from the north
A view of the town from the other side of the bay. Not that Fiskardo is bad, but it's definitely not something special to see either, considering that almost every trip to Kefalonia goes here
