Why you should visit Paxos – Antipaxos island near Corfu Greece
The Ionian Sea has its wonders. Paxos is just one of them and it’s rather hard to describe in words how much I enjoyed my short staying here.
Small beautiful island, with a surface of just 25 square kilometers, with a population of 3.000 inhabitants, sister of AntiPaxos, neighbor to Corfu, Paxos is just perfect with its little wild beaches and the manifested nature. It is mostly visited by British and Italians.
The all natural, non-commercial beaches are bound to be discovered, this is one of my favorites. Just rent a car or a scooter and go discover them for yourself.
Gaios is the main port in Paxos and it is a lovely place to take dinner. The tiny fishing village offers you an experience you won’t soon forget, when it comes to just drinking a beer, or having dinner. The place is clean and welcoming, very tourist friendly, but you won’t find here the crowds of tourists from the most known islands in Greece.
Lakka, the northern port of the island is also very nice and the restaurants on the sea shore serve excellent food. Been there at noon when the Greeks are having the siesta. There was nobody on the streets 🙂
Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to visit AntiPaxos. I suggest you spend half a day in AntiPaxos the color of the water here is just breathtaking.
You take a small boat from Paxos for 15 minutes and you can also taste the famous AntiPaxos wine while you’re there.
Conclusion: if you’re in Corfu, don’t miss a trip to Paxos and AntiPaxos – I promise you an unforgettable day! You can also find accomodation in Paxos if you want, but book in advance 😉
