What to do in Fiskardo

Visit the Enviromental Museum

The Fiskardo’s Environmental Museum is established in the old elementary school of Fiskardo, situated at the top of the hill in the village of Fiskardo possessing unique view from all sides of surrounding sea and landscape. Both the building and the land were originally donated to the village around 1940 by a rich local named Vandoros.. In 1999 the building was partially offered to FNEC in order to be refreshed and transformed into a Museum.

The entire work in the Museum was undertaken by volunteers, including repairing and refreshing the old building. Early 2000 the first part (1 room) of the Museum was ready and it started receiving visitors. The success was enormous mainly because it is a small unconventional interactive place and visitors are requested to touch in order to learn. In 2001 the Museum had changed completely and now both rooms of the building are used by FNEC volunteers.

Walk to the old Venetian lighthouse and Byzantine Church

From the road in front of Nicholas Taverna, to your left hand as you walk in the harbour, just walk along the waterfront and pass the taverna. You will go over a small fence with a makeshift gate and then follow the footpath along the peninsula. You will soon find yourself walking along a shaded and fragrant footpath amongst the pine trees. The sea will be close on your right.

Walk to Dafnoudi Beach and WW2 Gun Emplacements

The enchanting walk down the narrow and windy trail to Dafnoudi Beach is truly beautiful. The track takes you through a forest of Olive and Cypress trees and a gorgeous herb scented valley leading you down to the magical pebble cove of Dafnoudi. The tricky access to the beach on foot keeps this cove secluded and quiet, however, during the day it can become busy with people arriving by boat.

A walk in this area will take you to stunning viewpoints, German gun emplacements remnants of the occupation during WW2, beautiful derelict buildings, cannon mountings used for the guns that guarded the channel and amazing tunneled caves carved into the rock previously used as ammunition stores.
