The perimeter of Paxos and Antipaxos is like a lacy work of art, making it a “must” for every visitor to take a tour of the island by boat.
The beaches (“spiantzes”), most of which are narrow in size and pebbly, have clean, translucent waters. The most impressive are those of Gianna, Soulanena, Balos, Agia Marina at Mogonissi, Kloni Gouli, Kamini, Kaki Lagada, Alati, Kipiadi, Marmaria, Levrehio, Glyfada, Monodendri, Arkoudaki, Orkos, Kanoni, Harami (sandy beach), Ahai, Avlaki, Galazio and on Antipaxos the clear, turquoise sea and sandy beaches with exotic charm of Vrika and Voutoumi, popular yet idyllic, as well as the pebbly deserted beaches of Rodovani and Sarakiniko.
The magical caves of Mogonissi will impress (the caverns of the Sea Nymphs according to the Bishop Paramythias’ Athinagoras), Tripitos with its natural stone bridge, the cliff of Mousmouli, “Ortholithos” (a great rock formation standing in the middle of the sea), Ahai with its continual caves, the impressive cliff of Erimitis (the sunset from Agii Apostoli in Boikatika in the area of Magazia, with a view of the cliff is a spectacular sight indeed) and the cave of Ipapanti are sights that nature carved over time for us to admire and enjoy.
Boat tours of the island
A decidedly unique experience is a boat tour of the island (by high speed or other boats that you can take from all harbors). In this way you can enjoy the beaches as well as the spectacular natural formations of the western coast (Caves, Tripitos, Ortholithos, Ahai…)
The sea around Paxos is one of the most beautiful in all Greece. It awaits fans of underwater activities to explore and discover a world, rich in color and shapes.
