Paxos is quite simply a stunning Greek island, a timeless place to escape the stresses and strains of modern life and take a step back in time. This tiny island is just seven miles long and three miles wide, yet despite its minute size is home to more than 30 white pebble beaches, lapped by translucent waters.
If you are looking for a great place to relax, with plenty of sun and great swimming for all the family, then Paxos is the place for you. The lack of an airport has saved this pretty Greek island from becoming over commercialised, as you can only reach it by boat. Paxos is a small island, only 7 miles long with three harbours Lakka, Loggos and Gaios, all very charming, with a laid back atmosphere. There are plenty of secluded beaches, impressive cliff faces and caves. The stunning Erimitis cliffs, change to a beautiful golden colour as the sun sinks.
There is also the Ortholitos, an enormous pyramid of rock emerging out of the sea, as well as the Tripitos, a stunning stone arch.
The beautiful, horseshoe-shaped bay of Lakka is situated to the north of the island of Paxos. This elegant bay is extremely well sheltered, protected from the rolling cypress and olive tree-covered hillsides that tumble onto the inlet.
Measuring a tiny ten kilometres by four kilometres, Paxos is one of the smallest Greek islands. Without an airport or any mass developments, it is also one of the most unspoilt. Consequently Paxos remains a beautiful and tranquil haven, the perfect place to enjoy natural Grecian beauty at its best.
Whilst there is plenty to enjoy for nature lovers and those seeking peace and tranquility, is Paxos a realistic place to holiday with children?
Lying just 10 miles to the south of Corfu, Paxos is the smallest of the Ionian Islands. This sleepy Greek island is perfect for those wanting to discover an old-fashioned and timeless way of Greek living.
