Parga and Paxos Boat Trip from Corfu

Departing from the harbor of Corfu at 9am, we have a unique view of the old town situated among the two Venetian fortresses. Heading towards the south of Corfu we see the Kanoni peninsula and the palace of Mon Repos where Prince Phillip was born. We also see the tourist resorts Perama, Benitses as well as the most southern part of Corfu: Kavos and Asprokavos. As we approach the channel between Corfu and Paxos we see in front of us the green island of Paxos covered with olive and cyprus trees. The 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 idyllic retreat for his love, the nymph Amphitrite. Its up-market reputation continues today as millionaire yachts sit at anchor alongside local fishing boats. Entering the narrow channel which leads us to the picturesque small port of Gaios village, we see a breathtaking view of the two islands Panagia and Agios Nikolaos. From the harbor close to the center of Gaios village you can easily walk through the wonderful narrow streets and enjoy your lunch at one of the traditional tavernas. Then we head towards the Greek mainland and the town of Parga which is a large picturesque village with island character with a rich and eventful history. See its rare physical beauty, interlaced beaches, emerald sea, calm bays, olive groves, a healthy climate, romantic side streets and pathways with two three-story houses forming an amphitheater under imposing remains of a Venetian castle. As we return to Corfu, we travel close to the mainland enjoying another wonderful view of the impressive rocky coast and the sandy beaches. During your trip you can enjoy the sun and help yourself to refreshments, which may be purchased from the bar. We look forward to meeting you on one of our ships and are certain that your experience on the Ionian Sea will be an unforgettable one.
