Paxi is a lovely, green island of the Ionian Sea. Its small size and quiet beaches make it ideal for relaxing vacations and yet its closeness to Corfu give Paxi a cosmopolitan vibe. Except for stunning beaches, there is few sightseeing in Paxi. The most impressive beaches are found on the neighboring and tiny island of Antipaxos, accessible by boat from the port of Gaios, the capital town of Paxi. Voutoumi and Mesovrika are the most popular beaches in Antipaxos.
