Just good for walk
Oct 2021
Personally after travelling to so many places I haven't found something special on this area. Good place for walk especially on summer months but apart from this is a total chaos from many cars during most hours of the day. It has many stores, cafes and restaurants. Some of them are very good to try. Difficult place to park a car

Amazing!

An absolute must, make sure you get to the harbour when the fishing boats come in. It’s fantastic to see the turtles in their natural habitat even if lured by the tut bits thrown by the fisherman. My favourite part of our holiday.

Early morning turtle spotting
Aug 2021
I really like Argostoli. It is clean and small enough to get round with a good range of shops and tourist spots. It may not have the charm of other Greek towns with more historical buildings and traditional architecture but is certainly worth a visit.

One of the highlights is the pleasant harbour where you can walk along and watch the yachts come in and have a nose at the people sitting on their decks. The biggest highlight though is visiting around 09.30/10.00am when the fishing boats start selling their catches. This not only attracts local Argostolians who want to buy their dinner but also turtles looking for scraps from the fishermen. You get a full acrobatic display from the turtles as they swim around the boats and the harbour in water as clear as glass. It is mesmerising and I have never seen turtles in the wild so close. It was a real treat and worth visiting the harbour if for no other reason.

Beautiful area to walk and people watch

This is a lovely town, full of interest and the harbour is no exception with its fabulous super yachts and boats of all sizes. Be sure to watch the fishermen land their catch on the promenade, when all the turtles swim up for tasty morsels!

Well worth a visit.

Great place to see the turtles early in the day when the fishing boats come in. Lots of bars & restaurants along the front to enjoy a drink & watch the world go by. Great local market along the prom selling many local products at great prices too.

Turtles and great views
Sep 2020 • Friends
We arrived about 10am and we was lucky enough to see a few of the sea turtles swimming around, great views from the bridge a perfect spot for group pictures, with a range of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from. Also a very flat place to wlak around with board trips available.
