Paxos - Ionian Islands (Greece)

Paxos or Paxi. Paxos (and Antipaxos) are two small islands south of Corfu and west of the Greek mainland Epirus. Paxos covers an area of eighteen sq. kilometres and has about two and a half thousand permanent residents.

 It is a very green island full of olive trees and pines, sea caves, traditional villages and quiet beaches. Paxos is located about ten kilometres from Corfu and twelve kilometres from the coast of Epirus.

 By boat, the island is accessible from various ports of Corfu and Epirus. Paxos has an elongated shape,  the west coast is flatter than the east coast. The east coast is very steep with many high cliffs and caves.

The eastern part is the most impressive part of the island. Although Paxos has few inhabitants, it is very crowded in the summer. The international jet set has discovered the island, several rich people or celebrities bought a vacation home here or come here on vacation. The island is in the past visited by Julia Roberts and Pamela Anderson.

The beaches on Paxos are similar, large or small, they are generally white pebble beaches with clear turquoise water. On the island are many beautiful beaches, these are often not accessible by car but rather by boat. Therefore it is not a bad idea to rent a small boat and sail around the island at your leisure. The length of coastline the entire island is just twenty kilometres, which is so easy to do.
