Fiskardo holidays transport you to the northern tip of Kefalonia, an Ionian island off the west coast of mainland Greece. The town has a long history having had a settlement there for over two millennia. An earthquake hit the island in 1953 causing dreadful devastation to all but the northern tip so Fiskardo had a very lucky escape. Surrounded by forested hills, it is a delightful town with a busy harbour where fishing boats arrive with their daily catch. Boat trips can be taken from here to neighbouring islands and to resorts along the coast. The principal town Argostoli is only an hour away and is worth a visit.
Although cheap Fiskardo holidays have fairly wide appeal, the lack of sandy beaches deters those with young children. There is plenty to occupy couples both in the town and the surrounding area. One or two lively music bars contribute to the nightlife, but Fiskardo remains almost as peaceful by night as it is by day. Its range of hotels and apartments provide for all budgets and standards are high. As always in Greece, you'll receive a warm and friendly service. Fiskardo has an abundance of restaurants, tavernas and bars serving everything from local fare to international cuisine. As a small fishing port, fish is a prominent feature of menus. A favourite local dish is a prawn saganaki. If you like prawns, tomatoes, garlic and feta cheese, you'll love this. Local wines offer good value. Shoppers will be pleased with the facilities and should be able to find all that they need. There are plenty of gift and souvenir shops down by the harbour.
The Fiskardo holiday season lasts from April until October. Temperatures rise from twenty to thirty in the height of the summer season. Several low cost airlines fly direct to Kefalonia from regional airports. You can check on the Cheekytrip website for the availabilty of holidays from your local airport.
