Galaxidi

The picturesque coastal town of Galaxidi has a rich maritime history. Galaxidi was an important maritime city with a very large fleet, a shipyard, and many captains. The maritime history of the city is so pronounced that even today visitors feel it everywhere: in the streets with the captains’ houses, in the magnificent Maritime Museum, on fishing boats in the harbor, and in the old shipyard.

In a pure island setting with mansions and colorful wooden shutters, the sea is always the focus. The harbor and the Ianthia Coast are the center of Galaxidi, and tourists fill the cafes and tavernas, especially on weekends. The simple and unadorned beauty, the serenity and tranquility, and the warmth of a place without excesses and pretension are the elements that have made Galaxidi so dear to visitors.

Apart from its historic and romantic atmosphere, visitors will also appreciate the natural beauties. The Pera Panta Grove is located just opposite the harbor and is essentially a peninsula full of green trees surrounded by sea. The residents of Galaxidi love the grove and choose it for their afternoon stroll.

Also within a short distance from Galaxidi, there are many beautiful beaches, often hidden from the road, which visitors will find only with the help of the locals.
