Approximately, half the islands population of 2600 live in three main villages of Gaios, Loggos, Lakka. To an extent they relay on oil from their olive trees and fish from the sea, just as the islanders have done for hundreds of years. Almost a mile off the southern tip of Paxos is the tiny vineyard island of Anti Paxos, producing local wine which is a must to sample if the opportunity arises. Only two mile long and one mile wide, it has stunning natural bays with pure white sandy beaches. The glistering crystal waters are incomparable to any other island. The Paxos people are characteristically self-sufficient and many households keep livestock, produce their own wine, build their own houses and manage small business with an energy and diligence that is inspiring.
