Galaxidi is a small port situated on a natural double harbour surrounded by mountains. The deeper main harbour provides docking facilities for yachts and small fishing boats and is lined with restaurants, bars, and stores. The smaller harbour, Hirolaka, is residential, with a park (platia) from which there is a splendid view of Itea and Delphi.
The western part of Parnassus can be seen from here. On the rocky shoreline by the side of the larger harbour, is a pine forest planted by school children in the early twentieth century.
