This tiny island just south of Corfu is edged by white cliffs, pretty harbours and sleepy coves. Inland, it’s a rural paradise full of olive groves and farmlands. Paxos is just seven miles long and three miles across, so it’s really easy to explore on foot or by bus or taxi. Visit on a day trip from Corfu, or stay for longer and completely switch off. There are a number of private villas in Paxos, as well as small, charming hotels. It takes three hours by sea to reach the island from Corfu, but as you arrive in the crystal clear waters and see the beautiful scenery, you’ll know it’s worth it. Holidays in Paxos are all about really getting away from it all.

Things to see & do

Although holidays in Paxos are mainly about relaxation, theres still a few things you might like to see and do: Visit the Olive Press Museum in the inland village of Magazia, take a scenic boat trip around the island, go hiking, visit quaint villages and bustling harbours.

Food & drink

Island capital Gaios is home to a good choice of restaurants serving up everything from freshly caught fish to Italian dishes. Elsewhere, the island is dotted with an array of traditional Greek tavernas serving up local specialities such as moussaka, hummus and stifado (not forgetting ouzo.) All these are best eaten al fresco, so its a good thing most of the venues come with terraces.
