You’re then whisked south along the picturesque Kanoni Peninsula, cruising by the palace of Mon Repo and the charming towns of Perama, Benitses, and Kavos. Sounds dreamy, right?
Your journey to Paxos will be nothing short of epic. You’ll get a spectacular view of the olive and cypress trees that coat the island. It’s like a Greek salad but for your eyes. And yes, according to legend, Paxos was created when Poseidon used his mighty trident to chop off a piece of Corfu as a love nest for his missus, Amphitrite. Greek gods, eh? Always so dramatic.
Now, get ready to dock at the natural bay of Lakka, located on Paxos’s unspoiled northern side. Here, you’ll have some free time to meander through the narrow streets of this traditional village. Want to splash about or catch some rays? There’s a beach nearby calling your name.
Next up, you’ll sail to the west coast of Paxos to enter the enchanting Blue Caves, which are so beautiful that even the local monk seals have set up home there. After exploring these marine marvels, you’ll cruise over to the petite island of Antipaxos. Here, you’ll stop at Mesovrika Beach for a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear waters.
Finally, you’ll glide along the east coast of Paxos, gawking at the petite islands of Skaltsonisi and Mongonisi, before making your grand return to Corfu.
