West side Paxos with cliffs and caves, it's a must. Bathing in Antipaxos is actually done from the boat and all of a sudden 100 people are thrown into the water. For us it was more interesting to swim on the small beach of Gaios during the 2 hour stop without this town. On the boat, apart from the comments of the guides, there is constant music whose sound level should be greatly reduced. Otherwise overall it was a great day.

The ride was great, the transfer worked perfectly and everything was easy to find. The boat was a bit crowded in my opinion but well what the heck. Otherwise, beautiful points are approached and you can take fantastic pictures. The stopover in the city is very pleasant and you have enough time to look around the small town and enjoy 1-2 beers on the promenade. I would do it again

We had a great day on the boat. Very well organized cruise with a guide at the top! Superb landscapes! We were able to swim despite the weather (overcast sky and rain at the end of the day), very rough seas at times. During the day we took a break of one hour to swim and 2 hours in the small village of Paxos, the rest of the time on the boat. Remember to cover up well if the sun is not at the meeting. The return was done in music with a dj and dancers. Activity to do without hesitation!!
