There is a massive amount of tourism in this small village because of its amazing beauty. You sit in the shade of lemon and olive trees, surrounded by gardenias and bric-a-brac and are served traditional food . The one of the best place for anyone to spending their vacation.
If you are visiting Fiskardo in May or early June you might wonder how all the tavernas can survive with so few tourists. But if you visit in August you might need to book a table in advance when dining in the evening.
A popular activity when staying in Fiskardo is to rent a small motorboat and explore the small beaches that can only be reached by boat.
When it comes to tavernas you should definitely try Irida and Makis, they are both a little more expensive, but they are well worth the money.
