The smallest of all the Ionian Islands, Paxos is a mere 7 miles long and 2 miles wide but this verdant drop in the sea more than makes up for its size. Covered in olive trees, extreme cliffs and beautiful, unspoilt beaches, the island is accessible only by boat which lends to its rugged charm. Unsurprisingly given this lack of access, Paxos remains relatively unchanged by tourism but this in turn attracts quite a number of tourists looking for the real Greece.
The main harbours of Paxos are Gaios in the South and Lakka in the North, both welcoming ports which stretch languidly along the waterfront. Both good bases for exploring the Island, Gaios and Lakka offer some charmingly authentic accommodation and are also home to several good restaurants for sampling fresh seafood and local produce. Paxos even has its own wine thanks to the vineyards that cover the tiny island of Antipaxos, just off the southern coast of the island. Antipaxos is almost uninhabited but there are still one or two tavernas in which you can sample the goods but for those less adventurous, the wine is readily available all over Paxos.
