There are about 30 beaches around Paxos. Most of them are on the the east coast. The beaches on the spectacular west coast are mainly only accessible by water and here are also a number of magnificent caves. Gaios: north of Gaios are successively northward Kioni Gouli Beach, Kamini Beach and the sheltered beach Kaki Langada. Altough it has good accessibility and parking, this a not frequently visited bach. There's a beach cantina during the summer months.

Further on north there are successively Alati Beach, Kipiadi Beach and Kipos Beach. On the other side of the cape, across the three tiny islets you will find Pigadi or Marmari Beach and Leverechia Beach. They are mostly pebble beaches. Loggos has a pretty nice vollage beach and north there are Phykia, Glyfada Beach, popular Monodendri, Lakkos, Orkos and Arkoudaki Beaches. Levrecho Beach is easily accessible and therefore one of the busiest beaches on Paxos in the high season. It has a popular taverna. Glyfada is only accessible via a steep footpath or from the sea and therefore more quiet. Monodendri is the most popular beach along the stretch of coast from Lakka south to Loggos is Monodendri. It has several facilities and water sports. Lakka has Harami and Kanoni Beach. They are just a few minutes walk from Lakka. These are pebble beaches, but the seabed is covered with sand. Harami has gravel and sand and is therefore more frequented by families with children. There are also some water sports and a nice taverna with free sunbeds and umbrellas for their guests.

On the headland east of Lakka there are the more quiet Komeno and Plani Beach. Further south the baches and coves are best to be discoverd by boat. Take the paths to the tops of the cliffs, and you'll be rewarded with stunning views of the majestic cliffs that stand out brightly against the clear azure and turquoise sea. There are several day trips by boat to the cave and Ypapanti creek, and the impressive steep cliffs Kastanida Erimitis leaving from Gaios, Lakka and Loggos. On the southwest side of Paxos are there still such beautiful Achai Bay, Bay of Agrilas and Galaziou Mouzmouli. On the far south there is spectacular Trypitos Arch.
