God made Paxi in a man's measure -you can easily sail around the island's perimeter as it is only 10 kilometres long and four kilometres wide. Silver-green olive groves reach down to the foot of the cliffs on the south western coast and sandy beaches surround the capital. Antipaxi is an easy sail, and the beaches at Voutourni or Vrikei invite you to swim. A number of small islands are located near Gaios the capital, with fortresses (Agios Nikolaos), monasteries and phantasmagoria sea caves (Grotto of Ipapantis).
