Paxos – by boat
Are you sure you have seen it all?
Paxos can be found 14 kilometres south of Corfu, and about 20 kilometres from Parga ( Greece’s mainland). The island covers an area of some 19 square kilometres and it is situated amongst a beautiful cluster of picturesque small islands located in the Ionian Sea. It has no airport and can only be reached by ferry boat : therefore, it has been able to protect itself from the strain of modern tourism. Our speck of paradise is an island of endless olive groves and Anti Paxos one large vineyard.
The eastern coastline of the islands are gentle compared to the west coast which are bold and abrupt, with caves, arches and shear cliffs. The capital of Paxos is Gaios, a picturesque village built around a port which is protected by two small islands, Agios Nikolas and Panagia. On the Northern side is the village of Lakka and on the east side is the very charming village of Loggos. You will find the pace is still unhurried, very relaxing with genuine friendly Greek hospitality at its best. With so many meters of breathtaking coast line, the best and most complete way of exploring it is by boat!
