Great Snorkelling Spot Near Gios Paxos

Paxos And Antipaxos

The west side of Paxos when we were there was quite rough so not much swimming was done there, except in the very North art Lakka 1 on the satellite image. The bay here on the west side is pretty good lots to see and the water get reasonably deep quite quickly. There are a few nudists lurking in the rocks so snorkelers beware. It is also rocky and difficult to get in the water; rubbers shoes may be a plan here.

The east coast was always calm even during the storms that hit the island for a day or two. Good excuse to drink beer. Clear water everywhere and always something to see, points 2 and 3 on the satellite image.

Anti-paxos is probably the best Snorkelling here the bays are crystal clear sandy, shallow and deep and full of life. I recommend this spot, except when the party boat turns up from Corfu. I am a miserable bugger when it comes to teenagers having fun and spoiling my tranquillity. The orange lines mark the spots for a good snorkel
