Holidays to Loggos – a quiet fishing village on Paxos' east coast – have splendid seafront views and water taxis ready for adventure.
Ancient rumour has it that the tiny Ionian Island
of Paxos was created when Greek
god Poseidon struck his trident at nearby Corfu
. That drama's long forgotten in Loggos though – this east-coast village couldn't be more peaceful. Think colourful cottages, tree-covered hills and secluded coves carved from rugged cliffs.
Loggos has its own beach, but there are also a few others within walking distance if you fancy a change of scene. Marmari Bay might be one of the more secluded spots, but don't let the calm deceive you – beneath the still sapphire surface these coves are teeming with life.
If you're itching for a day out, catch a water taxi to neighbouring Antipaxos, famous for its sandy beaches. A little closer to home, Paxos has quite a few hidden gems itself. In Gaios, the Church of the Assumption is a famous pilgrimage site. And a five-minute drive from there's Ozias, where two Venetian-era churches sit amid olive groves.
