Introducing Galaxidi

The prettiest of the low-key resorts on the Gulf of Corinth, Galaxidi is graced with narrow cobblestone streets, handsome stone mansions and two small harbours, and makes a pleasant base from which to visit Delphi. A forested headland, opposite the waterfront, is fringed by a 1.5km walking path and pebbled coves popular with swimmers. The town is reasonably tranquil except during summer and holiday weekends, when its charm is tested by car loads of Athenians. Galaxidi’s most prosperous period was between 1830 and 1910 when it was a major centre for building caïques (small boats).
