A Cruise to Parga and Paxos

Departing from the harbour of Corfu, we have a unique view of the old town, situated between 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 of Perama and 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 cypress trees. 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's yachts sit at anchor alongside local fishing boats. Entering the narrow channel which leads to the picturesque port of Gaios we have a breathtaking view of the two islands of Panagia and Agios Nikolaos. From the harbour, close to the centre of Gaios, 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 picturesque town of Parga. Here the romantic side streets form an amphitheatre under the 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. (You will need to bring a camera or video camera, swimming suit, towel, sun oil, sunglasses, hat and comfortable shoes or sandals.)
