Yachting and sailing around Paxos, Greece
Here are some facts:
Around Paxos, you will find all sorts of boats - yachts, motor cruisers and small dinghy.
Greek Waters Pilot by Rod Heikell provides detailed guides and charts for the waters and harbours around Paxos as well as the Ionian and Aegean coastlines.
Greek law states that to hire a yacht or motor cruiser without a skipper, there must be two experienced/qualified yachtsmen in the party. So obviously, you cannot hire a boat without previous experience. There are many places on Corfu and throughout the Ionian region where you can hire boats of all sizes, both skippered or where you skipper the boat yourself.
Boating around Paxos
Lakka is also popular. Anchor in the bay which offers good shelter from the wind and is a nice place for a swim. There is a small quay but it is used for the day-tripper boats. You can get water at the quay sometimes. There are provisions for boaters as well as several tavernas and bars.
Antipaxos is very popular with day trippers and can get very busy in the summer, with many small boats to watch out for.
There are many hazardous rocks, both above and below water, so it is best to stay well out.
Mooring on Antipaxos
There is a small harbour on Anti-Paxos, though this is unsuitable for most yachts and is usually congested with small local boats. Instead most visiting craft drop anchor off the coast near one of the beaches. This is only practical during the calmest of conditions, however, as soon as there is any wind or sea swell the conditions become too unpleasant to stay.
