A small wonder
Lakka sits in the north of Paxos, a small Greek island just off Corfu. Holidaymakers arrive here by sea – and what an entrance you’ll get when you sail into the gorgeous horseshoe-shaped bay filled with fishing boats and super-yachts. On land, meanwhile, it’s all pastel-coloured houses and friendly tavernas, many with that all-important waterside view. And as Paxos is such a small-scale place – just 8 kilometres by 3 – getting to see the rest of it is rather a doddle.
The beaches of Paxos are pebbly, so it’s a bonus that at Lakka’s tree-shaded Harami Beach you can paddle into the gently-shelving shoreline to find lovely soft sand underneath. There’s plenty of activity on offer here too, including ringos, banana boats, windsurfing and water-skiing. Lakka also comes with a second beach, Kanoni, though if it’s more sand you want, then manmade Mongonissi Beach is about 20 minutes’ drive south.
Daytrips to Gaios
You can be in the little capital, Gaios, in about 10 minutes. There’s a pretty pink-walled church at the harbour and a folk museum with old pottery, 14th-century guns and a couple of rooms that replicate ancient village life. From Gaios, it’s a couple of minutes across the water to the islet of Panagia to see the whitewashed monastery. A second islet, St Nicholas, has a couple of churches and a ruined Venetian fortress.
