Holidays to Magazia deliver an authentic Greek island experience, with vine-dappled meals and sunny afternoons spent in secluded coves.

Splendid isolation

Magazia's a magical little hamlet nestled among the pines of Paxos – an Ionian Island that gets less press than nearby Corfu. Only accessible by ferry, this tiny island hideaway's largely undiscovered despite its stack of charms. Magazia's all about unspoiled country lanes, olive groves and postcard-worthy coastlines.

The spoils of Paxos

Although there's no mass tourism in Magazia, there's still plenty to keep visitors occupied. The nearest beach is under a 30-minute walk away, while watersport action can be found a 10-minute drive up at north-coast Harami Beach, or 15-minutes south at Mogonissi Beach. And in-between these beach beauties is a world of criss-crossing walking trails.

A culinary odyssey

Magazia doesn't boast a bustling restaurant scene, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. Think regional specialities and Mediterranean favourites served on a sun-soaked terrace. Take in views of olive groves and across the sea towards Greece's mainland as you tuck in.

Further afield

Just a five-minute drive away's the island's capital, Gaios. Here, you can take a boat trip to the nearby islet of St Nicholas from the small harbour lined with pretty, salmon-pink houses. Or, another five-minute drive from Gaios will bring you to the Venetian ruins of the ancient village of Ozias.
