Paxos and Antipaxos from Corfu
As no Greek holiday is complete without a sea cruise, we offer you the opportunity to visit three wonderful places – the islands of Paxos and Antipaxos, which are situated close to the southern coast of Corfu, and also the famous Blue Caves of Paxos.
Departing from the harbor of Corfu, there is a unique view of the old town, among the two Venetian fortresses. Heading towards the south of Corfu you will see the Kanoni peninsula and the palace of Mon Repos where Prince Phillip was born. You will also see the tourist resorts Perama, Benitses, the village of Kavos and the cape of Asprokavos which is the most southerly point of Corfu island.
As you approach the channel between Corfu and Paxos you will see in front of you the green island of Paxos covered with olives and Cyprus trees.
Legend has it that Paxos was formed when Poseidon severed the tip of Corfu with one mighty blow of his trident and dragged it south to create an idyllic retreat for his love, Amphitrite! The Legend goes on, with Poseidon´s marble Palace which was situated in one of the blue caves off the island named Ipapanti. During your passage, on the left hand side, you will see the beautiful port of Laka.
You will continue sailing south along the west coast of Paxos island, enjoying the impressive rocky coast line and the unique white sandy beaches. Then the boat enters the breath taking sea caves, the clear blue waters will leave you speechless.
Departing from the caves you will soon arrive at the small but perfectly formed island of Antipaxos, whose sandy blue water coves have been compared to the Caribbean´s. Here you will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal waters of the "Paradise beach".
The excursion returns once again to Paxos. Its up-market reputation continues today as millionaire yachts sit at anchor alongside local fishing boats. After entering the narrow channel which leads to the picturesque port of Gaios village, you see a breathtaking view of the two islands Panagia and Agios Nikolaos. The boat moors close to the centre of Gaios village where you can easily walk through the wonderful narrow streets and enjoy your lunch at one of the traditional tavernas.
During your trip you can enjoy the sun and help yourself to refreshments, which you may purchase from the bar.
