Paxos is 20 km2, 12 km from Corfu and 20 km from Parga. It is famous mainly for its crystal clear water, green olive groves, interesting rock formations and caves. The capital is Gaios. It is the only city on the island. Its western side is dotted with white cliffs that are home to so-called blue caves. You can also see more of these up close. (Bathing is also possible at the blue caves during the cruise) Even a larger boat can swim all the way to Ipapanti Cave. (Unfortunately, we were not taken in, but we had the opportunity to swim in the crystal clear waters.) During the cruise, the ship also passes the huge, straight rock called Ortholithos.
