Antipaxos: Connecting with nature. Our true source energy!

Only 2 km or so south of Paxos is the island of Antipaxos; an even smaller, almost uninhabited with small vineyards. There are two beaches in the north end, Vrika and Voutoumi. Here you have some of the finest clear blue seas in the world safe for swimming and snorkeling. South of these two beaches, there are many smaller, more private coves that can be reached without too much difficulty. Your visit to Paxos would really not be complete without a trip to Antipaxos, it is a unique experience that makes you feel heaven on earth! The islands have become very fashionable with Italians and are popular with charter fleets. Consequently they are very crowded during the months of July and August. Outside these times, they and their numerous attractive anchorages are a delight to visit. 2 German Hallberg Rassy 43 (SY Flora on the left, Victoria on the right!) An die Flora Crew: Lustig wars mit Euch, freuen uns jetzt schon auf unser nächstes Treffen! Paxos: Visiting yachts have the option of berthing in the main harbour of Port Gaios or in the anchorages of Lakka, Mongonisi and Longos on the same island. Stunning Lakka (We paid nothing for the excellent anchorage, very calm and protected) Back to life on land! There’s so much to learn from each individual person we cross paths with. To be able to move wherever my heart desires with our boat is awesome. I’m grateful for that. Greece has more than 6000 islands, some 200 of which are inhabited, others little more than rocks. But which is the right one for us? We need more time!

If I had to choose one definitive best time of year, I would say that the prime time to see Paxos & Antipaxos is May. You’ve got perfect weather during spring and you are able to enjoy some peace and quiet before the crowds show up. The Ionian islands are often warm enough for swimming. The Ionian Sea is renowned for its perfect sailing conditions with plenty of wind to have a really fun sailing holiday in the sunshine. Typically winds build about lunchtime and drop again at sunset. This means that you can spend the morning sailing gently to a lunch time stop to a secluded bay or pretty village and go for a swim or snorkel, have lunch on board and then have a great sail to your evening destination. The winds are fairly consistent and usually result in a very calm evening with still waters. Imagine how Robinson Crusoe felt when he woke up to his first full day marooned on a desert island. Good morning from Antipaxos! Here’s a list of the places we stopped while sailing around the Greek Ionian Islands 1. Paleokastritsa Marina, Corfu – anchored (free) 2. Gouvia Marina (around €60/night for 43′ yacht incl. water and electricity) 3. Corfu Town, Corfu – anchored (free) 4. Petriti, Corfu – anchored (free) 5. Lakka, Paxos – anchored (free) 6. Port Gaios, Paxos – 26 Euro 7. Antipaxos- anchored (free)

Sometimes, when things are going really well, I feel like I've already seen things - it's the flashback feeling in a good way. Like I'm watching a rerun, because I've studied this defense and know what comes next. Now, that is a good feeling, when your mind is working fast because you've studied, and you realize, 'I've seen this before.' Follow us on Flipagram! https://flipagram.com/birgitt.krumm
