Due to the earthquake of 1953 much of Kefalonia's old architect was destroyed except for Fiskardo, which was passed by with much of the tremor absorbed through the bed of limestone it sits on. There is a small museum just at the top of the harbour with pictures of how the village was over the years, well worth a visit.
There are of course several boat trips available from the harbour, or why not try hiring your own motor boat and explore the horseshoe bays and lagoons often only accessible by boat.
Like the rest of the island the people are warm and friendly the restaurant prices can be a tad higher than elsewhere but it’s worth it just for the setting alone.
There are several gift, home craft, ceramic and souvenir shops dotted about the village and it’s worth exploring the side streets to find the hidden tavernas and cafes.
