  1. Was there last summer – had the most beautiful beaches I ever saw! Olive trees on the beach touch the water and give you shade – Kipiadi is indeed a must and so is Monodendri! In Antipaxos, make sure you go the second beach and eat fresh Skorpina. Ask for red wine – you’ll be lucky if the harvest was good – darkest red wine in Greece. Go to Genesis restaurant in Gaios for a view of the whole city and Agios Nikolaos.
    Erimitis bar and restaurant – people say this a lot, but seriously the sunset is uninterrupted.
    Also, I strongly suggest you take a boat tour to see the caves.

    • definitely one of the best islands!

  2. Hi guys,
    thx for such nice words regarding Paxos Island, I think all Greek & of course Cypriot beaches haven’t anything to jealous from other beaches around the world and especially the Carribean ones.

    Have a nice day.
