Paxos

 

Paxoi, antipaxoi

Paxi or Paxoi (Greek  Παξοί ( pronounced Paek’si in English) is the smallest group of Ionian island (the Heptanese), just seven miles south of Corfu.

In Greek mythology, Poseidon created the island by striking Corfu with his trident, so that he and wife Amphitrite could have some peace and quiet.

The island is approximately  13 km in length and tipped up towards the west. The west coast is dominated by steep white, chalky cliffs that are greatly eroded at sea level ; in the East coast we find the four main anchorages : Lakka, Longos, Gaios and Mongonisi. Much of the  attractive landscape is still covered in olive groves.
