Once I get to Corfu, I know that it's only a couple of hours before I'll be in Paxos, and as I stand at the bow of the boat I can see my secret hideaway coming closer. I love Paxos as it hasn't been spoilt by mass tourism, so there are not too many hotels, and you always seem to be able to find your own little piece of Greece to enjoy in peace and tranquility.
When I go out at night, I do feel like I am in a scene from a movie, and always make an effort. The bars and restaurant are pretty swanky and whilst sitting in the town in the evening I imagine owning one of the hundreds of yachts moored in front of me - my day dreaming usually starts with “If I won the lottery”…. As the island is only 12 kilometres by 4 kilometres, it is perfect for exploring, so I usually hire a car for a couple of days and do as I please, although it is really easy to make the most of the taxis and buses and do likewise.
By far the most vibrant place on Paxos for me is Lakka, although you may say it is built up, that's only relative to the size of everywhere else, so it still looks quaint. You can wander through the streets, browsing the shops whilst stopping for a drink or ice cream. The bus only takes about half an hour from Gaios to Lakka, and costs a couple of euros. A taxi is also inexpensive, and costs around 11 euros each way. Most of the beaches of Paxos are shingle or stony coves, and all are great for swimming and relaxing. For a sandy beach, it's worth taking the short boat ride to Anti Paxos, which is like stepping into a Caribbean - the beaches are sandy with the water breathtaking.
For me there is only one Greek island - be it for relaxing, walking, sunbathing, swimming or gastronomy, Paxos has it all. I have shared my little secret haven with you, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
