About Paxos: Paxi is the name given to the smallest group of the Ionian Islands (the Heptanese), the largest of which are Paxos (Paxos comes from the word 'pax' which means peace in Latin) and Antipaxos (a smaller nearby island famous for its wine, and two of the finest sandy beaches in the Ionian Sea). According to the 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 west coast is dominated by steep white, chalky cliffs and many 'blue caves' which can be explored on launches departing from Gaios. The visitor can admire the exquisite beauty of a rare nature, which keeps its picturesqueness through the ages and can enjoy the harmonic coexistence of the oil tree, the pine tree and the stone. The seaside small villages Loggos, Lakka and Gaios, are waiting for the visitor to taste the cuisine of the Ionian Islands and to enjoy the fine taste of Antipaxos wine.
