It is the smallest of the Ionian islands, the so-called Benjamin of the Ionian Islands.
According to mythology, the island was created when Poseidon, god of the sea, wanting to find a shelter to house his love with Amfitriti, struck hard with his trident the southern tip of Corfu and so detached a small piece . That is why the trident is the emblem of Paxos.
Charming and idyllic island impresses at first glance the visitor with its dense vegetation, beautiful beaches and picturesque villages.
