About Paxos

The sophisticated smallest of the Ionian islands in the south of Corfu, Paxos, is a hidden gem of tranquility, serene nature and sophistication. Once a “secret” among Italian visitors, sailors and jetset yachters, it is witnessing a growing popularity in the last years among those seeking a relaxed holiday in a peaceful sanctuary among the olive groves. 

The beauty of the natural landscape can be found in the contrast of the green of the Mediterranean flora and the turquoise of the Ionian waters. The picturesque and lively port of Gaios, with the fiords in the entrance and remarkable cultural events, along with the other two colorful sea villages of Loggos and Lakka, with traditional tavernas, restaurants and bars, are the heart of the island’s lifestyle. 

The island of Paxos

The century-old olive trees as far as the eye can see and the endless sailing boats in the marina will relax you before the boat takes you to Voutoumi, the famous beach of nearby Antipaxos islet, with its turquoise waters, as well as exotic Vrika beach. 

Paxos has some beautiful beaches itself. The most easily accessed are Levrechio, Kipiadi, Marmari, Kaki Lagada, Kloni Gouli, Arkoudaki and Herimitis. Planos in the north, with a unique wild beauty, or Kipiadi with olive trees and crystal clear waters are two musts. Visit the beautiful caves and hidden beaches that form on the steep western coast of the island either by organized water excursions or by renting a boat.
