Only 14 kilometres south of Corfu, Paxos is too small to have its own airport – which is how it’s escaped an influx of tourists to its pretty, varied coastline. The beaches are those ones with the large flat, pale stones that make the water look extra aqua, but there are a few man made beaches if your feet crave soft sand. On the island’s western side the coast is a lot more dramatic, it rises and falls and opens with caves, coves and cliffs.

People mainly visit for relaxing beach breaks – there are plenty of local restaurants and cafes overlooking picturesque ports to revel in and eat too much and drink too much and stay up too late as well - but there are plenty of places to try some watersports too if you want a bit of activity with your relaxation.

Get there by ferry or sea plane…
