Paxos - Antipaxos
Along the east coast there are around 30 beaches between the northern and southern tips of the island. They offer safe swimming in delightfully clear warm water and are composed for the most part of white pebbles or a mixture of pebbles and sand. The beaches can be reached by bus or on foot but many of them are best discovered by boat. Indeed much of the fun of a Paxos holiday lies in exploring the coastline in a small motorboat, looking for a beach to spend the day on, probably with a picnic.
There are two superb sandy beaches on Anti-Paxos, Vrikes and Voutoumi, which are reached by the frequent speedboats from Gaios. The same boats also go to the sandy beach on Mongonissi island, on the way to Anti-Paxos.
