Antipaxi's covered with grape vines. With few year round residents, Antipaxi, just south of Paxi, gets most of its traffic from June to September. There is a port at Ormos Agrapidias. Antipaxi produces good wines and has a fine sandy beach. There are a couple of tavernas and a small campsite.
Though choices are limited, you can find good fare in both Garos and Lakka. Prices are a bit higher than normal because everything is imported and the wind can halt incoming traffic without warning.

Paxi has had an unusually peaceful history. Mythology tells us that both Paxi and Antipaxi were created by a single blow from Poseidon's trident. Homer wrote about its seven sea caves. As he also did on the island of Meganisi, Papanikolaos used a cave on Paxi to ambush Italian ships during WWII.
The road from Garos to Lakka was donated to Paxi by Aristotle Onassis. Enjoy it!
Rent a bike or moped for the best enjoyment of the island and its forests of silvery olive trees. Walking tours of the island are fun, too. Look for a shop selling the Bleasdale Walking Map of Paxos on the island and use it to plan your walk. See more photos of Paxoi.
