Getting to Paxos

One of the charms of Paxos is that it does not have an airport. The nearest airport is in Corfu Town. There are flights to Corfu from many UK and European airports.  From London the flight time is approximately 3 hours. You will then need to take a boat from Corfu to Paxos.

We can arrange your boat and taxi transfers, if you wish.

Passenger boats

The passenger boats operate between Corfu and Gaios on Paxos.

Joy Cruises operate the hydrofoil which takes about 1 hour. It leaves from outside the Sette Venti café at the new port in Corfu Town (which is about 10 minutes by car from the airport).

Kamelia Lines’ Despina boat departs from Lefkimmi (in the south of Corfu). Their service includes a free transfer bus to/from the airport to Lefkimmi port. The total journey time between Corfu and Paxos (including the bus transfer) is 2 hours. Timetables, contact details and an online booking facility can be found here: www.kamelialines.gr/en/

The passenger boats can get busy, especially in the high season, so we recommend pre-booking.  We are happy to arrange boat tickets for you on request.
