Paxos

Map view of villas in Paxos
Paxos, a tiny idyllic island in the Ionian Sea, is an enchanting mix of unspoilt beaches, exquisite emerald bays framed by pine-clad hills and charming villages capturing the essence of traditional Greek life. Discover a stunning landscape of lush olive groves and wild flower meadows, scattered with old churches and picturesque stone windmills. From quaint fishing villages with traditional Greek tavernas, to a bustling Venetian harbour and ancient sites steeped in history, Paxos is a glorious haven to escape to...

On the beach
Paxos is a vision of glorious stretches of untouched coastline peppered with tranquil coves, framed by spectacular limestone cliffs and breathtaking sea caves. Snorkel in crystal clear turquoise waters around white-pebbled coves throughout the island, hire a boat to seek out solitude on a beautiful secluded beach, or take a cooling swim in one of the glittering azure bays flanked by undulating pine trees and olive groves, where you might glimpse rare Monk seals basking in the warm ocean.
Local cuisine
For those who want to enjoy authentic Greek cuisine, this tiny island offers real culinary delights. In every resort, wonderful family-run tavernas line the waterfront, offering a plethora of delicious Greek specialities from succulent lamb kleftico, to fresh tzatsiki and Greek salad. Find a lantern-lit courtyard eatery tucked away in Gaios to sample homemade beef stifado, freshly cooked from the kitchen, or spend an evening in picturesque Loggos or Lakka, dining on the catch-of-the-day grilled in olive oil and enjoying the famous Greek hospitality.
Outdoor pursuits
As an island only accessible by sea, Paxos offers a wealth of opportunities to discover unspoilt Greece off the tourist trail. Amble along dry-stone walled pathways and explore the countryside carpeted with cypress trees, or set sail on a boat trip to see the legendary blue caves, where Poseidon’s marble palace is reputed to have been located. Your holiday here wouldn’t be complete without an unforgettable boat cruise to neighbouring Anti-Paxos island - an enchanting retreat where you can find tranquillity on its deserted paradise beaches.
Atmospheric evenings
An evening out in Paxos is the ideal way to savour the laid-back Greek lifestyle and enjoy the staggering beauty of this charming island at dusk. Sip a glass of local Anti-Paxos wine in a delightful waterside taverna, gazing across the ocean as the sun sets, or soak up the atmosphere in the bustling flagstone town square at Gaios, lined with quaint restaurants. It’s the perfect place to take a leisurely stroll along the lanes to watch sailing boats bobbing in the water at the harbour promenade.
