As no Greek holiday is complete without a sea cruise, we offer you the opportunity to visit three wonderful places. The island of Paxos and Antipaxos, which are situated, close to the southern coast of Corfu, and also the famous blue Caves of Paxos. The boat departs from the harbour of Corfu, offering a unique view of the old town, among the two Venetian fortresses. Heading towards the south see the Kanoni peninsula and the palace of Mon Repos where Prince Phillip was born and several tourist resorts, Perama, Benitses, the village of Kavos and the cape of Asprokavos which is the southern point of Corfu island. Approaching the channel between Corfu and Paxos the green island of Paxos is appearing covered with olives and cyprus trees.

Legend has it that Paxos was formed when Poseidon severed the tip of Corfu with one mighty blow of his trident and dragged it south to create an idyllicretreat for his love, Amphitrite! The Legend goes on ,with Poseidon´s marble Palace which was situated in one of the blue cave of the island named Ipapanti. During this passage, on the left hand side, see the beautiful port of Laka.
