Unforgettable water
I was lucky enough to travel to Greece and spend my vacation in the wonderful green islands of Paxi and Antipaxi. I stayed at a friend's house in Gaios, the biggest village of Paxi. I had only a week to spend there and my only wish was to see the astonishing beaches that my friend was talking about all these years. We started from Levrehio, only 5 minutes from Gaios, a wonderful beach with crystalline green waters. We also went to beaches like Logos and Monodendri. However, one of the most amazing places that I ever seen in my whole life is the small island of Antipaxi. We passed across with a small boat that travels back and forth between Gaios and Antipaxi. I can easily characterize the place as the ultimate Greek island. You feel like that the island has been crystal for ages, enough to make it a paradise. The island has no habitants, only a few people go there in summer to spend the day and leave at night. The boat made the tour of this magical island and all we could see was clean exotic sea. The turquoise water was just breathtaking. Voutoumi is a wonderful pebbled beach on the northern side of the island. It is situated inside a cove with tall rock on the sides. The water is quite shallow, ideal for all ages. There is also a tavern on the hill.
