Antipaxos Yacht Charters
Explore island Antipaxos on your luxury yacht charter in Greece
First inhabited by the Souliotes in the early 19th century, after the Ottoman Empire defeated their homeland in 1803, Antipaxos is the smallest of the Ionian islands — measuring only two square miles in diameter, and home to no more than 100 inhabitants at any given time.
Dotted with verdant cypress, pine and cedar trees, Antipaxos is covered with vineyards and olive groves known for producing some of the most popular Greek wines and olive oils. Harvesting small quantities of grapes of the Greek Adamis, Glyceras, Tsoukaniaris, Lianorogo, Asproudi, Fidias and Petrokoryntho variety, Antipaxos is regarded as a “wine lover’s Paradise.” The small batch of bottles it produces are sought after by wine connoisseurs all over the world, and constitutes the main source of income for the island, considering there is hardly any shopping or tourist attractions onshore.
Just a short boat ride from the island of Paxos, Antipaxos is coveted by many as an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and a place to enjoy some of nature’s most beautiful landscapes. Antipaxos makes the perfect stop for yacht charters that are seeking solitude and a calm nature retreat.
Things to Do and See on Antipaxos
Vrika Beach: Located at the northern end of the island of Antipaxos, Vrika Beach is characterized by its beautiful sand and turquoise waters, making it perfect for activities like swimming and snorkeling. Home to two tavernas — each of which serve delicious local fare, as well as the island’s popular wines and olive oils — Vrika Beach is an idyllic spot to anchor your yacht and come onshore for traditional Greek cuisine.
Voutoumi Beach: Known for its pebbly coastline, translucent turquoise waters and lush, hovering cliffs, Voutoumi Beach is equal parts tranquil and dramatic. Dip your toes in the cool Ionian Sea and you’ll be surprised to find that, beneath the water, the seafloor is covered in soft, white sand. Located high above Voutoumi Beach, the area’s Bella Vista taverna boasts the best view of Antipaxos and beyond; making it a must-try haunt for travelers from all over the world.
Mesovrika Beach: Tucked in between the island’s Vrika and Voutoumi beaches, Mesovrika is characterized by large boulders dotted atop a white, pebbly coast. Perfect for yachts and sailing boats, this beach offers yacht charter guests incomparable views of other Ionian islands, made more sacred by its enchanting blue waters and vibrant Greek sunsets.
