If there is peace on the earth with incredibly beautiful natural ambience, then it is none other than Paxos. The Greek Island in Ionian Sea is the smallest one with the population of about 2500.
If you love traverse the tranquil places, then this is the best touring destination for you with its beautiful landscapes, shingled beaches, olive trees, sheer cliffs, calm Ocean water and secluded villas.
Some of the villas are abandoned while some are owned by local people who give these villa houses for rent to visitors. There is no airport, so you have the only way to reach here is a ferry ride. You can hire a water taxi or ferry from Corfu which will drop you at the main port of Paxos, Gaios. And here begins your tranquil excursion to this beautiful Island.
You can feel the freshness and purity of nature everywhere on this Island. The clear skyline and azure water are enough to delineate the natural charm and glory of this island. It’s really an amazing feel when you go for a long walk with your beloved and olive grove surrounded pathways help you in making your walk romantic.
When you go for a promenade at shingled beaches, then you can feel the serenity spread on the beach, in water and sky. Looking at the clear skyline, laying down on the beach side with your partner really feels wonderful. You can feel like you are in heaven where no one is there to disturb your privacy and the peace.
Apart from the beaches and olive groves, you can go for a romantic lunch at some traditional Taverna. The Island is rich in nature, history, culture and tradition. The perfect epitome of cultural, historical, and architectural beauty are available here in the churches, museums, and Tavernas. These traditional Tavernas are very few in count and all are situated near harbors. You can feel the calmness of water at your feet while having lunch or dinner with your partner.
There is a myth about the Island’s discovery. It is said that the God of Sea Poseidon has invented this Island as a peaceful love nest. And, here you can find this peace even after centuries spent.
The centuries-old settlement has also not changed. No artificial glitters of pubs, shopping malls, waterparks are available here. Only pebbles, olive trees, sheer cliffs, coves, and calm water with some abandoned villas, churches, and museums are there. Inhabitants live in the houses which prove the Greek architectural settlement in real meaning.
Instead of guesthouses and hotels, tourists stay in villa apartments when come to this Island, because you will hardly find hotels and guesthouses in Paxos. Despite its small periphery, there are several villa houses with enough space and several amenities.
