Cultural village of Europe for the year 2004, Paxoi is the ideal island for a peaceful holiday. Fjord-shaped beaches, underwater caves, small bays and green hills welcome the lucky visitors. According to the legend, the island would be the southernmost tip of Corfu, if the God of the Sea, Poseidon, had not broken it off with his trident when he needed a god-deserving place to live his love with the Nereid Amphitrite.

Its capital and main port, Gaios, is separated from its natural breakwater, the tiny island of Agios Nikolaos by a narrow channel, displaying one of the most beautiful port sceneries in Greece.

Do not miss, the Venetian fortress of Agios Nikolaos, the English Governor’s House, the Paxoi Museum and the churches and chapels of the area. Visit the picturesque villages of Loggos, Lakka and Ozias, tucked away in pine and olive trees. In the areas of Oziás, Yaná and Glyfáda, sulphur thermal springs offer an alternative treatment for rheumatics and other health conditions. Innumerable ravishing beaches await the fitter ones as a starting point for scuba diving into underwater caves and shipwrecks, and for windsurfing. It sounds pretty interesting to walk through the vast olive groves inland. In the area of Magaziá, don’t forget to drop by the Olive Museum, once a traditional olive press. In the areas of Agia Eleoussa, Vlahopouliátika and Boycática look for the clusters of stone cisterns, carved on the rocks as rainwater collectors.
