A trip from Parga to Paxos.. Simply unforgettable!!!
Excursion boats make daily cruises and round tours from Parga, Sivota and Corfu to Paxos island.
You will see:
- the famous seaside villages of the island:
Loggos, Lakka and Gaios,
- spectacular caves,
- beautiful locations and the amazing Voutoumi in Antipaxos.
You need to make the right choice, because many vessels do not make round tours of the island but just visiting a couple of beaches or caves. It would be nice once you do it to choose the long ride ( round trip - Paxos )...
A trip from Parga...
We leave Parga at 10 in the morning. After about an hour we reach Loggos, the smallest of the three main villages, which is really picturesque. The taverns and the bars have a distinct style and there the heart of this village "beats". We stay here for a while and then we sail to Lakka.
This natural harbor is a sheltered anchorage with clear water. At Lakka, we will stay for a half an hour to swim and to have launch in one of the small taverns.
After Lakka, we go on the west side of the island. The cliffs with the sharp edges that resemble towers are full of caves. We will visit three of them. Ypapanti, Galazio and Ortholithos.
The view from here will fascinate you. The journey continues with a walk on Antipaxos with the shallow sandy beaches that seem to be of gold.
In Voutoumi, we will have the opportunity for a second swim in the blue waters.
Finishing the trip we arrive in Gaios, the capital. Here, one can buy fashionable clothes, jewelry and pottery, local olives and olive oil. We will stay in Gaios for an hour and a half before starting the returning trip to Parga. Reaching Parga you will feel the desire to redo this beautiful journey. Besides, it is not a coincidence that an adage of Paxos says "no one can visit the island only once!"
