BACK  Paxos

At only 6 miles from tip to toe, you are never far from anywhere on Paxos. A true gem among the Ionian Islands, it has a slightly English look with Dover-white cliffs descending to a very un-English sparkling blue sea under a Greek sun. Although fairly small, there are several popular resort areas including the ‘capital’ Gaios, Lakka, Loggos and the tiny Mongonissi. Not to mention msses of beautiful inlets and sandy beaches plus many under- or low-water ‘Blue’ grottos. There is no airport here so the only way to arrive is by boat or, for the more well heeled, a new sea-plane service from the mainland. Although only a short hydrofoil ride away from Corfu to the north, Paxos is in another world. Life here is enjoyed at a slower, gentler pace than its larger neighbour. Instead of large resorts and tourist crowds you will only find pretty fishing villages, sleepy hillside hamlets, sheltered coves and the frequent chance to have one of the island’s beaches all to yourself - best reached by hiring your own motor boat. If you hanker after something even smaller and quieter than Paxos, take the short ferry ride from the island’s capital Gaios to the islet of Anti Paxos, famous for its wine. With just 4 tavernas, valleys of vineyards and some of the most stunning beaches in Greece you may just want to stay for ever.
