Beaches of Paxos

The nearest beaches to our house are in Lakka Bay, an 8 minute walk down through the village.

And in the opposite direction, the secluded Orkos Beach, a 10 minute walk down a rocky path through the trees. Other excellent beaches further down the coast from Orkos are best reached by hiring a small boat with outboard motor. Our guests also have free access to the large swimming pool of a quiet hotel, a 2 minute walk down the path. For a sandy beach with crystal clear water, nothing beats the nearby tiny island of Anti-Paxos. Boats leave throughout the day from in front of the main square in Gaios. There is a regular bus service between Lakka and Gaios.

Activities on Paxos

The house is ideally situated as a starting point for interesting walks to both sides of the island. Your best guide is the lovely eccentric Bleasdale Walking Guide to Paxos, which also has the best map of the island. (Our house is on it). You can buy a copy in the village shops. It's also full of information about the island. Small motorboats can be hired by the day or week, as can motor bikes and cars. Greek cooking and yoga lessons are available on the island. And Lakka has its own diving school.

"Wonderful ambience. Greece as it should be. It offers peace and seclusion. English couple
