Topography - Climate

Paxi is a group of islands and skerries. The largest of these is Paxos and Antipaxos, both of which are low-lying. The major part of the island is 100 m or less above sea level with the highest point only 241 m above sea level. There are two hills, one in the middle of the island and the other in the eastern part near the coastline.

The appearance of the coastline is chiefly distinguished by slight inclines with the exception of the eastern side, in the area of the cove of Ermitis and to the north. The most part of the island is flat.

Like all of the Ionian islands, the climate of Paxos is temperate and wet and is sunlit the most days of the year. Similarly, the sea is calm and serene.
