As Paxos has no airport, you reach it by sea from either Corfu or from Igoumenitsa on the Greek mainland.


Travelling via Corfu


You can fly direct to Corfu or via Athens or Thessaloniki, depending on the time of year and departure airport. For many years there have been regular direct charter flights to Corfu from the UK and most of Europe between May and October and, more recently, the two UK no-frills airlines easyJet and Ryanair have started operating scheduled services to Corfu. EasyJet’s flights from London Gatwick and London Luton start at the end of March, flights from Manchester at the beginning of April and flights from Bristol at the end of April.


Once on Corfu, you can reach Paxos several different ways:

Hydrofoil - The most popular way is by hydrofoil, which runs at least once a day in summer and only takes one hour.

Car Ferries – On most days there are domestic car ferries which go from Corfu Town via Igoumenitsa on the mainland and Lefkimi at the southern end of Corfu. These are cheaper than the hydrofoil but take longer. Foot passengers do not need to book tickets in advance.

Sea Taxis - Sea taxis take between 30 minutes and one hour and leave either from Corfu Town (1 hour 20 mins), Lefkimi (40 mins) or Kavos (30 mins) at the southern end of Corfu. Sea taxis can be very convenient if a group of people are travelling together but otherwise they can be expensive.

Skippered Yacht – You can also travel by skippered yacht and start or finish your holiday on Paxos with a two-, three- or four-day mini-cruise, instead of the usual transfer by hydrofoil, ferry or sea taxi.  


Travelling via Igoumenitsa


An increasing number of visitors to Paxos are now choosing to travel overland across Europe to one of the Italian ports on the Adriatic and then take an international car ferry to Igoumenitsa on the coast of Epirus just opposite Paxos. Driving from the UK, the journey can be through France, Switzerland and Italy, through Belgium, Germany, Austria and Italy, or indeed by any other route and usually takes three or four days. Car ferries for Igoumenitsa leave from Trieste, Ancona, Bari and Brindisi, so you can have a short cruise at the end of the trip.


You can also reach Paxos by travelling overland across Europe without a car, as there are coach and rail services from London to Trieste, Ancona and Brindisi, and from there you just travel as a foot passenger, in as much or as little comfort as you choose.


If you wish to travel to Igoumenitsa via Athens or Thessaloniki, there are regular bus services, and it is also possible to fly to Ioannina and take a bus from there.   


Once in Igoumenitsa, you can reach Paxos in several different ways:

Car Ferries – On most days there are domestic car ferries which go either direct to Paxos or via Lefkimi at the southern end of Corfu.

Sea Taxis - Sea taxis take 40 minutes and can be very convenient if a group of people are travelling together but otherwise they can be a very expensive option. Sea taxis run at any time of the day but you need to book well in advance, particularly in high season.

Skippered Yacht – You can also travel by skippered yacht and start or finish your holiday on Paxos with a two-, three- or four-day mini-cruise, instead of the usual transfer by ferry or sea taxi.
