Description

While in Corfu, don’t miss the chance to visit the beautiful neighboring islands of Paxos and Antipaxos the undisputed hidden gems of the Ionian Sea. Paxos Island is one of the smallest in the Ionian group of islands but one of the prettiest and loveliest. If you are on luxury holidays chartering luxury yachts, this small island should be on your list. Paxos is small enough for tourists to take a tour of the whole island and yet very unexploited from mass tourism so is a very nice place to visit with a private yacht. On this fascinating cruise, we will discover the world-famous Blue Caves, visit the tiny, unspoiled island of Paxos and swim in the irresistible turquoise waters of Antipaxos!


Join us on a day private cruise to discover the “hidden gems” of the Ionian coastline, explore the island’s secrets, observe magical locations, have fun and enjoy of course a pleasant day accompanied by the sun and the sea!

Poseidon´s marble palace, is one of the blue caves of Paxos.


As we sail away from Corfu, the natural bay of Lakka comes into view on the north side of Paxos, unspoiled by mass tourism, a traditional village suitable for those who seek tranquillity.
