Galaxidi

Galaxidi
galaxidiGalaxidi is a small harbor built on a bay of the Gulf of Corinth, a little less than 35 kilometers south-west of the archaeological site of Delphi. The elaborated architecture and the relaxed atmosphere make it an excellent choice as a stopover, perhaps also taking advantage of the taverns along the pier.

GalaxidiGalaxidi is a corner of Greece quite unique in its kind. It soon becomes clear, as you get there, that this is not a fishing village. The richness of its past as a major shipyard, with an impressive fleet of merchant ships operated by the same “Galaxiotes” has remained evident.

During the day you can park under the trees in front of the pier [N 38.375308, E 22.386656], for the night is better to move in order to avoid the noise of the bars close by and the comings and goings of scooters.
We stopped on the quiet beach ‘Yiannakis’
[N 38.376856, E 22.393437] about a kilometer and a half south of the pier, in the company of three French RVs.
