No Greek holiday is complete without the trip to Paxos – Antipaxos from Corfu and this one will give you wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. We depart from the port of Corfu and we continue sailing south along the west coast of Paxos island, enjoying the impressive rocky coastline and the unique white sandy beaches. Next, the boat enters the breath-taking sea caves, whose clear blue waters will leave you speechless. The blue caves marine area is a natural habitat of the Mediterranean monk seal (monachus monachus). Paxos, Antipaxos and the surrounding area is included in the European initiative ΝΑΤURΑ 2000, a network of nature protection areas.
After exiting the caves, we arrive at the small but perfectly formed island of Antipaxos, whose sandy blue-water coves have been compared to those in the Caribbean. Here, you will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal waters of Mesovrika or Vrika beach.
Our excursion returns once again to Paxos from the east side of the island and we can see the small islands of Skaltsonisi and Mongonisi. Sailing alongside of the narrow channel of Paxos and the islands of Panagia and Agios Nikolaos. Depending on the day, we either moor in the picturesque port of Gaios village or the peaceful village of Lakka. In both villages, our passengers have the opportunity to wander through the wonderful narrow streets, visit the souvenirs shops and enjoy lunch at one of the traditional tavernas. This is an unforgettable experience of the Ionian Sea and a must for all the visitors of Corfu.
