Less than 2km south, Paxí’s tiny sibling ANDÍPAXI has scarcely any accommodation and no facilities beyond several beach tavernas open during the daytime in season. Andípaxi’s sandy, blue-water coves have been compared with the Caribbean, but you’ll have to share them with kaïkia and sea taxis from all three villages on Paxí, plus larger craft from Corfu and the mainland resorts.

Boats basically deposit you either at the sandy Vríka beach or the longer pebble beach of Vatoúmi, although quieter bays are accessible to the south. Paths also lead inland to connect the handful of homes and the southerly lighthouse, but there are no beaches of any size on Andípaxi’s western coastline and thick thorny scrub makes access difficult.
