The beautiful island of Paxos lies in the Ionian sea. According to the Greek Mythology, Neptune extracted this tiny island with his trident from the island of Corfu and made an erotic shelter for himself and Amfitritis. Unusually verdurous with perennial olives, pines, cypresses and bushes, as well as with amazingly beautiful beaches, gulfs and fascinating marine caves, Paxos is known to all yachting aficionados attracting each year an impressive collection of “A-list” motor cruisers and sailing yachts.
Here you can enjoy the genuine architecture of the Ionian islands, follow the tracks running through the olive groves along the breathtaking west coast cliffs and down to its secluded beaches, spend an afternoon at Lakka, the picturesque natural harbor and taste local fish specialties, rent a boat and explore the amazing north-west coastline of the island where the blue waters will amaze you.
A day trip to Antipaxos (only 15 minutes away by boat), best known for its two magnificent white-sand beaches Vrika and Voutoumi, is a must. This island may be small, but our local concierge will always have various ideas and propositions to enrich your days and nights uncovering all of its hidden pleasures.
How to get there
- By plane to Corfu directly from major European cities or Athens and from there by sea taxi (1 hour)
