More about Paxos

According to Greek mythology, Paxos, practically untouched by time was created when Poseidon the Greek God of the sea hit the island of Corfu with his trident, breaking off the southern tip creating Paxos and Anti Paxos, where he would keep his lover Amphitriti.

With enchanting tiny harbours of liquid aquamarine with colourful hand painted fishing boats and waterfront tavernas, Paxos weaves its spell and its no wonder that people return year after year to be around its stunning beauty and warm and extremely hospitable people. 

Despite Paxos being just 29 sq km & 8 x 3km there is no shortage of things to do.

  • A walkers paradise with hundreds of ancient walled donkey tracks leading to unspoilt inland villages and hamlets discovering the many flora and fauna of the island along the way.
  • Mix with locals in quirky Kafenions and village tavernas. You will be spoilt for choice for your al fresco suppers, some with impromptu live local music.
  • Speedboats and caiques depart hourly for the beautiful white sand beaches of Anti Paxos and there is also a discreet selection of water sports in the translucent turquoise bay of Lakka.
  • Daily boat trips take you round to the dramatic west coast to discover deserted beaches and swim in the many caves which have been carved out over the years.
  • Charter your own motor boat (with skipper if you require) and discover the many isolated coves and beaches yourself.
  • The Greek coastal resort of Parga on the mainland is just over an hour away, boats leave daily and return late afternoon.
  • Local traditional Paxiot cookery demonstrations in stunning outdoor locations.
