Full description
Enjoy a full-day cruise to the jewels of the Ionian Sea – the islands of Parga and Paxos. After a pickup from your accommodation, depart from the harbor of Corfu, situated between two Venetian fortresses where you'll have a beautiful view of the Old Town. Pass Kanoni island and the palace of Mon Repos as you sail towards Parga and Paxis. See the tourist resorts of Perama and Benitses, and reach the most southern part of Corfu – the villages of Kavos and Asprokavos. After a relaxing two hours cruise, you'll reach Paxos which is located just off the southern tip of Corfu. Relish in the beauty of the green island covered with endless olive groves stretching up as far as the eye can see. Learn about the legend that Paxos was formed when Poseidon severed the tip of Corfu with one mighty blow of this trident and dragged it south to create an idyllic retreat for his love, the nymph Amphitrite. Today, you can find millionaire yachts alongside small fishing boats at the port. Then, set sail for the narrow channel, which leads to the picturesque port of Gaios, the capital of Paxos. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the two islands of Panagia and Agios Nikolaos. The captain will then drop anchor close to the city center of Gaios village. Stroll the narrow streets and enjoy lunch at a traditional taverna overlooking the sea. After lunch, head toward the Greek mainland and the town of Parga, a charming seaside town on the Greek Mainland overlooking its picturesque port. Marvel at the rare physical beauty of the island with its interlaced beaches, emerald seas, calm bays, and olive groves. Explore the romantic pathways with storey houses forming an amphitheater under imposing remains of a Venetian castle. Finally, enjoy the wonderful views of the impressive rocky coast and the sandy beaches one last time before returning to your hotel.
