Paxi (or Paxoi) is a beautiful island in the Ionian Sea, situated south of Corfu island. Thanks to its proximity to Corfu island and the coasts of the Greek mainland, Paxi is a perfect island-hopping base!
Due to its small size, Paxi has only three little seaside villages, Gaios, Lakka and Logos. Many private yachts and fishing boats moor at the ports of these villages during the summer, giving a cosmopolitan feel to the island. In these villages, you’ll find many Paxi hotels, traditional taverns, and other facilities.
The standouts of Paxi are hands down its beaches! Most of Paxi beaches are located on the eastern and northern parts of the island and can easily be reached. Even more gorgeous beaches lie on Antipaxos island, right opposite to Paxi. The Caribbean-like setting and exotic emerald waters of Antipaxos beaches will enchant you! To get to Antipaxos island, you should get one of the daily boats that depart from Gaios port in Paxi.
If you love exotic beaches and Caribbean-like landscapes, Paxi is a one-way destination!
