Photographer's Note

You can see another view of this harbour in WS. These photos were taken in the sea trip from Benitses (Corfu).

Paxos is the smallest of the Ionian Islands, lying just 11 km from the southernmost tip of Corfu. Many visitors return year after year to Paxos to experience the intimacy of this peaceful haven, the genuine friendliness of the locals, and the captivating scenery. Paxos is covered in many olive groves with ancient gnarled and twisted olive trees, some of them hundreds of years old, which shelter numerous species of wild flowers and small vineyards. This serene and unspoiled landscape is what makes a holiday to the island of Paxos truly memorable.

Since the 1960s, many of the 2,500 inhabitants of Paxos are involved with tourism, fishing and the production of olive oil. The olive oil in Paxos is of a very high quality and is also used in the production of soap and shampoo. All the local products can be bought from shops on the Gaios water front.
