THE ISLAND OF PAXOS

ANTI PAXOS

About a mile south of Paxos is the island of Anti Paxos, with its wonderful sandy beaches and turquoise blue water that is ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Anti Paxos is just a mile wide and two miles long but the beaches are amongst the best in the whole of Greece and even rival those in the Caribbean!

 

 

Vrika and Voutoumi are the two main beaches on Anti Paxos. Vrika is sandy, whereas Voutoumi is pebbly but sandy once in the water. There are tavernas on both beaches and above Voutoumi Beach is the Bella Vista taverna, with its wonderful views along the coast of Anti Paxos and across to Paxos - a short sharp climb but more than worth the effort.

Inland, Anti Paxos is very different from its larger neighbour Paxos and is well worth exploring. A network of narrow paths and tracks leads through the maquis and over the undulating countryside past orchards, vineyards and the walled gardens of the houses in the village of Vigla down to the small harbour of Agrapidia and the quiet coves in the south of the island. The terrain is steep and uneven in places and good walking shoes are recommended.

Anti Paxos has a population of less than 100, some of whom produce a highly prized red wine that is rarely available for sale. There are no shops on the island.

Anti Paxos can be reached in just 15 minutes using the sea taxis that leave Gaios several times a day, and also by traditional caique which takes a little longer. Sea taxis also leave from Lakka and Loggos and round-the-island boat trips also usually spend a couple of hours on the island.
