Paxos: The small diamond of the Ionian
Paxos is a group of islands in the northern Ionian Sea, just seven miles south of Corfu and eight from mainland Greece.
The legend wants it to have been created by Poseidon to house his love with Amfitriti. Paxos capital is Gaios, a beautiful village that is built around the Church of the Ascension, on the east side of the island. The other two central parts of the island are the villages of Lakka and Longos, on the west and north side of the island.
The history of Paxos is long and full of cultural diversity, as they have been under the rule of many nations over the centuries, which have left an indelible mark on the identity of the island… the Romans, the Venetians, the French, the Russians, the Ottomans.
Paxos is an island full of trees, a real forest in the middle of the sea, full of olive and pine trees while the beaches are of unique beauty throughout the Mediterranean. The west side of the island is full of caves and breathtaking beaches only accessible by sea! Special mention deserves the island of Antipaxos with its exotic beaches.
An ideal holiday destination for those who are looking for quality time and relaxation and those who love the unique combination of sea and forest.
