       How to got to Paxos      

Paxos has no airport, can only be reached by boat and has been able to protect itself from the strain of modern tourism. 

You will find the pace is still 

unhurried, very relaxing

There are several ways to travel to Paxos.  You only have to choose the most convenient to you.  You can reach the island by:

 airplane  

car

Between the months of May to October

you can fly direct to Corfu from most European air ports.

Daytime on Mondays to Corfu from Gatwick and Manchester.

Between November to April you have to fly to Athens and then on to Corfu.  If you fly Olympic Airways from the UK they will arrange the London/Athens/Corfu flight and the transfer of luggage between all airports.

On arriving at Corfu airport you take a taxi to the New Port.  There are usually several taxis available, just ask the driver to take you to the New Port for the boat to Paxos, they all know where to take you. It's helpful to give them the name of your particular ferry boat or sea taxi. The journey to the New Port will take about 10 minutes and cost between 6 and 9 .

And then to PAXOS : by

 "  flying dolphin " *

The main "passenger only" ferry boats are the hydrofoils Santa II and Santa III which carry approx 150 passengers and leave the New Port in Corfu for Paxos every day (in the summer). The crossing to Paxos takes about one  hour however, at certain times of the day the boat will go to Paxos via Igoumenitsa which is on the main land of Greece opposite Corfu, journey time then is about 90 minutes. Arriving in Paxos the boat will dock at the Gaios New Port where the local taxis will be waiting. The cost of a one way boat ticket from Corfu to Paxos is about 12.

Or by car- ferry * * 

The "   Theodora "

are  the 

"local car ferries" also carries for vehicles and foot passengers  . The Theologos leaves Corfu from the New Port and sails to Paxos via Igoumenitsa. The journey time is about 4 hours and the cost of a one way passenger ticket is about 11/12 .

 The interior of the passenger accommodation is new, comfortable and drinks / snacks are available.

If your arrival is delayed and you miss your intended ferry to Paxos, or you arrive in the early hours of the morning don't  worry call a sea taxi.****  

Driving to Greece

If you wish to drive to Greece, you should allow around two to three days for the journey by car from the UK. If you do not wish to drive the entire distance, a motor rail service operates between a terminal in Belgium and Milan in Italy.

If you are traveling overland by car you have several departure ports in Italy from where the main shipping lines sail to Corfu and Igoumenitsa. Igoumenitsa is on the main land of Greece opposite Corfu.
