Island Sailing

The unique beauty of the coastline of Paxos island or Paxi is renowned throughout the Ionian. The natural harbours of Lakka, Gaios and Mongonisi teem with boats in the summer months. The importance of the anchorage they offer increases when the maestro blows and the microclimate is a refuge from the currents and the swell of the Paxos straits. The impressive cliffs with sea caves and underwater caves along the west coast of Paxos are a ‘must see’ in favourable weather.

Lakka and Gaios are both perfect Greek villages to moor up whilst visiting Paxos island on your Ionian yacht charter, with venetian architecture and pretty small lanes and alleyways these Ionian harbours provide an air of understated sophistication and elegance. Loggos (or Longos) the smallest of the three main villages of Paxos has a charming and peaceful ambience and, due to it's size has fewer visiting yachts on summer sailing holidays.

The beautiful natural beauty of the small island of Mongonissi just south of Gaios offers a very sheltered bay, crystal clear water, white sandy beaches with it's welcoming taverna for visiting yachts on their Ionian charter sailing holiday.
