Anti Paxos

If Paxos is small, then Anti-Paxos, which lies to the south, is tiny, with only fifty permanent inhabitants. On the way, stop perhaps at Mongonisi, a small enclosed bay just over a mile (1.6 km) south of Gaios for a swim or a spot of lunch at Theo’s Taverna, or at the small islet of Nisis Kaltsonisi, just off Mongonisi, where you can anchor between the two Islands and enjoy a tranquil swim in spectacularly clear blue green water.

It’s an opportunity to enjoy some peace and quiet after the bustle of Gaios. Anti-Paxos is known for its good, sandy beaches and wonderful clear water. There are two bays on the north-east side of the island, Emerald Bay and Ormos Agrapidhia. These are popular as day anchorages but can become uncomfortable at night when the north-westerly wind gets up.

There are a few tavernas that open only during the summer months to cater for day-trippers and visiting charterers, but really the charm of Anti-Paxos lies in the fact that there is very little to do here bar relax on deck or on the beach, swim and snorkel in the amazingly clear waters, maybe have a few quiet drinks and a spot of lunch at one of the tavernas on the beach and pat yourself on the back for having chosen such a great Greek sailing holiday.
