PAXI

Paxi is the ideal island for a peaceful holiday. Fjord-shaped beaches, underwater caves, small bays and green hills welcome the lucky visitors. According to legend, the island would have been the southernmost tip of Corfu, if Poseidon, god of the sea, had not broken it off with his trident when he needed a place worthy of a god to live his love with the Nereid Amphitrite.

The beautiful town of Gaios (or Gais) is the island’s capital and main port. The image of the port with the narrow canal between Paxi and the islet of Agios Nikolaos is one of the loveliest in Greece.
During your stay on Paxi, it is worth visiting the Venetian castle, the English governor’s mansion, the Paxi Museum and the city’s churches. A tour of the island by boat will reveal the amazing underwater caves with imposing domes, about 40 in all, on the west coast of Paxi, as well as the island’s old paths, especially the beautiful section between Mousmouli and Porto Ozias and from Manesatika to Ypapandi north of Paxi.
Stroll around the picturesque villages of Paxi, Longo, Lakka, Ozia and other green sites in between, with pine and olive trees. On Paxi you can enjoy sulfur spas at Ozia, Gianna and Glyfada with their known curative properties. Beaches of incomparable beauty are the starting point for a jaunt into the caves and seeing the region’s shipwrecks, as well as offering high quality windsurfing.
Particularly impressive are the vast olive groves in the interior of the island. In the village of Magazia, a traditional olive press has been transformed into an Olive Museum. Of special interest are the cisterns hewn from the rock by the inhabitants of the island to collect rainwater.
The Paxians, as genuine members of the Ionian family, hold a Festival of Classical Music. At the beginning and end of every summer, the island is flooded with melodies sung by famous soloists from Greece and abroad.
Just 3 n.m. from the port of Gaio is the tiny islet of Antipaxi.
