Tropical beauty in Greek seas

A verdurous island of perennial olives, pines, cypresses and bushes, with beautiful beaches, graphic gulfs, steep coasts and fascinating marine caves. The settlements, with samples of genuine eptanisian architecture, the churches and chapels, in combination with the distinct natural environment make Paxoi an ideal destination. Walking the streets and paths give you the opportunity to see every corner of the island, while the bays are offered for mooring and are a reference point to those who travel in the Ionian.
According to mythology, Neptune extracted Paxoi with his trident from island Corfu, and made them the erotic shelter for himself and Amfitritis.
