A few words about Paxos island

Welcome to Paxos to the the romantic hideaway of the god Poseidon. A verdant island with turquoise waters, picturesque villages, imposing cliffs sheltering littoral caves and fantastic beaches! Paxi, the smallest of the Ionian Islands, is located 7 nautical miles to the south of Corfu and 8 nautical miles off the Greek coast, 12 nautical miles distant from the mainland town of Parga.

The capital of Paxi is Gaios, an attractive port naturally protected by the two islets of the Panagia and Agios Nikolaos, giving the resemblance of a Norwegian fjord. Olive groves and cypresses predominate on Paxos, while on Antipaxos there are vineyards producing an exceptional red wine and the renowned exotic beaches Brika and Boutoumi. These two islands with their astonishing natural beauty will leave a lasting impression!

The outstanding beauty of Paxi is the main attraction for thousands of visitors. The island is considered one of the most cosmopolitan of our country. It offers lush green countryside, enchanting beaches and quaint villages ideal for romantic strolls as well as traditional Greek hospitality and entertainment in the bars and taverns of the island's resorts.
