The perfect combination of the natural elements, as well as the warm hospitality and excellent cuisine, make the island of Paxi one that will provide you with unforgettable summer holidays. The island of Paxi has sea connections to the port of Igoumenitsa in Central Greece, and the harbour of Lefkimi on the island of Corfu.
Located to the southeast of Paxi is the smaller island of Antipaxi. This island is a very small one, and is home to approximately 100 inhabitants. There are some beautiful beaches found on Antipaxi, which are ideal for those hot summer days.
However, the island offers little to nothing in terms of accommodation, so staying there can be a problem. There are however boats operating from here to Paxi during the summer season, so visitors to Paxi can take a day trip to Antipaxi.
