No Corfu holiday is complete without an Ionian Cruise, so do not miss the chance to embark on an unforgettable boat cruise to Paxos and Antipaxos islands, which are situated close to the southern coast of Corfu Greece.Corfu cruises are the best!
Departing from the harbour of Corfu island, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the unique view of the old town, the New and old fortress and the palace of Mon Repos where Prince Phillip was born. As you move south, you will see the village of Kavos and the cape of Asprokavos which is the southern-most point of Corfu. When you approach the channel between Corfu and Paxos you will see the green island of Paxos in front of you, covered with olives and cypress trees.
Legend has it that Paxos island was formed when Poseidon, the ancient Greek god of the sea, severed the tip of Corfu with his powerful trident and dragged it south to create a romantic retreat for his mistress, Amphitrite. Upon your arrival you will surely be impressed by the stunning rocky coast line and the unique white sandy beaches. You will have the delight to spend some hours at Gaios port, the capital village of Paxos, walking throught its narrow streets with the charming traditional houses, little orthodox churches and seafront tavernas.
Next stop is Antipaxos island. In a few minutes time you will arrive at the small but perfectly formed island of Antipaxos, whose sandy blue water coves have been compared to the Caribbean´s. Here you will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal waters of the "Paradise beach".
