Tourism has been gently introduced to the island. There are excellent beaches and quiet coves, with crystal clear waters, perfect for swimming. Although only one or two are sandy beaches, Paxos has the most magical clear waters for enjoyable swimming. The island has become a favourite destination but continues to remain unspoilt.
The fox is considered to be the messenger of Inari, the god of rice and sake.
Lots of fox statues can be seen throughout the shrine.
Often the fox has a key in its mouth. It’s the key of the rice granary.
