Paxi is the smallest island group within the Ionian Islands (the Heptanese). The largest islands are Paxos and nearby Antipaxos. Antipaxos is famous for its wine and two of the finest sandy beaches in the Ionian Sea. The capital of Paxos is Gaios. The area of the island is 76 square kilometres, just under 30 square miles.
In Greek mythology, Poseidon created the island by striking Corfu with his trident, so that he and his wife Amphitrite could have some peace and quiet.
The island of Paxos is approximately eight miles (13 km) in length and tipped up towards the west. The west coast is dominated by steep white, chalky cliffs that are greatly eroded at sea level, and harbour many 'blue caves', which can be explored oby boat. Much of the attractive landscape is still covered in olive groves. These stretch from Lakka, the harbour community in the north, through Magazia to Gaios, the capital. Olive oil making, soap manufacture, fishing and tourism are the main industries.
