Fiscardo, Kefalonia | Sailing Greece

 In Europe, Greece
After exploring a couple of coves on the island of Lefkada (catch up here if you missed the blog post) we sailed south to the next island.

Here we arrived at the North of Kefalonia in a beautiful sailing village called Fiscardo. I am lucky enough to have been to Kefalonia on a few occasions before as one of my best friends moved out here 4 years ago with her family.
Kefalonia is such a stunning island, one on which you can expect gorgeous weather between April – October, dreamy beaches, waters you can see to the bottom of and swim in and well… more amazing greek food.
Whilst Lassi and Sami may be more popular tourist destinations on the island, and Argostoli being the capital, Fiscardo is the most popular mooring point for sailors and homes some of the most stunning apartments on the island. 
Despite having been here before, I have never arrived by boat and it gave the island a completely new perspective. 
After sailing 4 hours to get here we were all ready for a dip and so dived straight into the ridiculously beautiful waters before whipping up some lunch.

After filling up our tummies, we were eager to explore and headed straight over to the village for a nosey around.

We may have also slipped into the Waffle shop by accident…

… Heart shaped waffle with frozen yoghurt ice cream, melted kinder bueno, melted freer roche, strawberries, caramelised almonds and white choc flakes.
It’s called Frozen Yoghurt and they do everything from frozen yoghurt (obviously) to sundaes, ice cream, waffles & pancakes.
Are you ready for me to show you around, possibly, the most beautiful village i’ve ever seen?
Decorated in the most gorgeous combinations of pastels, shuttered windows and flowers, I found my dream home 10 times over…
I mean… tell me you agree?!
Which is your favourite?
I love the last photo of the white house, blue shutter and pinks flowers, but HOW gorgeous are the yellow flowers clinging to the spiral staircase (first picture).
After wasting away in the sunshine and pottering in and out of boutiques and art shops, we hopped on the tender back to our boat and scrubbed up ready for some dinner…

All along the harbour in Fiscardo there are restaurants on the water serving fresh fish and local delicacies for you to to feast on. 
On the first night we ate at one of these, which didn’t blow my mind and was the most expensive meal on our trip so far. 
I guess thats due to the fact Fiscardo regularly hosts yachts on it’s harbour alongside famous visitors, so you are paying for the location.
Anyhow, on the second night we walked a little further around the harbour to a restaurant called Panormos which boasted absolutely BEAUTIFUL views across the Ionian ocean.

You can come here for a couple of drinks, or for dinner as we did.
At Panormos you can expect freshly caught local fish, Greek delicacies and a wide choice of International dishes – something for everyone.
I went for the Sea Bass which was the special for the day and it was absolutely on point. Served with a tangy slaw/salad, they really did make sure the flavours complimented each other and fully enhanced the dish…

After a fully satisfying meal on the terrace, we begun our walk back through the village to our boat.
Being continually mesmerised by the sunset that was evolving before us, I was drawn away from the conversation and got a bit snap happy with my camera.
If you’ve read my Gili Island adventures in Bali you will already know that pink sunsets are my absolute favourite…
Another memory for the keeping. 
When the sun rose, another day was upon us and so was another meal.
I enjoyed some overnight oats, topped with greek yoghurt, honey and freshly chopped peaches on the top of the boat as i watched the early sailors pull into the harbour.

Before setting sail to the next island, I popped my trainers on and hopped off to explore a nature trail that leads just off from Fiskardo around the peninsula.
Here you come across 2 lighthouse, one of which you can ascend to the top off and also a few ruins…
It takes a mere 15 minutes to walk around, is completely sign posted and is perfect for grabbing some fresh ocean air if you’re staying in Fiskardo.
Fiskardo, it was short and sweet but you were more beautiful than ever & maybe one day I will return, live in my little white and blue house and we will meet once again…


Thank you for reading, lots of love…
