For a Greek getaway with an intoxicating mix of tempos, come spend your holidays in Paxos. This tiny island south of Corfu is moved by many rhythms. From the hustle and bustle of the main ports of Gaios, Lakka and Loggos, to the natural calm and majesty of the rugged west coast – you have the whole symphony to enjoy!
Daytrippers, passing yachts and island-hoppers flock to the picturesque harbours, pebbly beaches and crystal clear, warm waters. But you can relax entirely, secure in the knowledge that you won't have to leave this heavenly isle in a hurry.
When you arrive, get your bearings by joining a boat trip around the island. You'll see the scores of tiny coves and larger beaches, interspersed with quaint villages along the east coast of Paxos. Try and remember your favourites so you can return later in your holiday. And you'll experience the towering white cliffs and gaping grottoes of the west coast from the best vantage point.
Spend your self catering holiday in Paxos in one of the villages on the coast, or in a rural little hamlet like Magazia. As Paxos is so small, the whole island is easily accessible by bus, taxi or on foot. Go hiking through ancient olive groves, rediscover that idyllic cove or savour an ouzo at a traditional coffee shop. Then return to the buzzing daytime hotspots once they've calmed down a bit. Pure magic.
Only one thing is certain. When you return home, you'll be singing the island's praises.
