Paxoi Sailing Guide
Catch a glimpse of the unparalleled beauty of a natural landscape.
Fast approaching the island of Paxoi from the sea, you get a glimpse of the unparalleled beauty of its natural landscape. Swim in its Fjord-shaped beaches and small bays, dive in its underwater caves and stroll around its green hills. Paxoi is one of the places that IonionSails recommends to all its bareboat or skippered charterers.
Gaios is the main Port of Paxoi and the capital of the smallest of the main Ionian Islands. It is located on the east coast of the island and it is made up of a maze of small alleys and a central square at the seafront. The visitor can taste high quality local cuisine in the numerous restaurants instated in the town and the olive groves surrounding it.
While you are sailing with a monohull or catamaran chartered from Ionionsails, you must visit Paxoi. Approaching Paxoi from the North, you will reach Lakka, a fishing village with an almost circular natural harbour, delimited by two headlands rendering it to a safe shelter from the open sea. The scenery is completed by the presence of an harmonious combination of olive groves and cypress trees.
The east coast of the island is the seat of Loggos, a small fishing village that comes alive in the summer months and offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the greek hospitality and taste the greek entertainment at its simplest form.
