Description

No Greek holiday is complete without a sea cruise and this one will give you wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. 

The departing view of Corfu harbour provides a unique view of the old town and its two Venetian fortresses. As we head south, the Kanoni peninsula and the Palace of Mon Repos – the birthplace of Prince Phillip – come into view. Also visible are the tourist resorts of Perama, Benitses, the village of Kavos and Corfu’s southernmost point, the cape of Asprokavos. 

Approaching the channel between Corfu and Paxos, you are treated to a magnificent vista of the olive and cypress trees that cover the lush island of Paxos. Legend has it that Paxos was formed when Poseidon severed the tip of Corfu with a mighty blow of his trident and dragged it south to create an idyllic retreat for his great love, Amphitrite. 

Poseidon’s marble palace – as legend has it – was located in Ahai, one of the blue caves of Paxos.

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

The ship enters Lakka and moors in the center of the colourful village. You can easily walk through the wonderful narrow streets for some shopping and enjoy your lunch at one of the traditional tavernas. 

Five minutes’ walk from the west side of the village are two beautiful beaches surrounded by crystal clear waters, ideal for swimming and sunbathing. We continue sailing south along the west coast of Paxos island, enjoying the impressive rocky coastline and the unique white sandy beaches. 

Next, the boat enters the breath-taking sea caves, whose clear blue waters will leave you speechless. The blue caves marine area is a natural habitat of the Mediterranean monk seal (monachus monachus). Paxos, Antipaxos and the surrounding area is included in the European initiative ΝΑΤURΑ 2000, a network of nature protection areas. 

After exiting the caves, we arrive at the small but perfectly formed island of Antipaxos, whose sandy blue-water coves have been compared to those in the Caribbean. Here, you will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal waters of “Paradise beach” (Voutoumi). 

Our excursion returns once again to Paxos from the east side of the island and we can see the small islands of Skaltsonisi and Mongonisi, the picturesque port of Gaios village and the two small islands of Panagia and Agios Nikolaos. 

Throughout your trip, you are free to enjoy the sun and purchase refreshments from the bar. 

This is an unforgettable experience of the Ionian Sea, and we look forward to sharing it with you aboard one of our ships.
