How to get to Paxos Island

Since Paxos does not have an airport, most people fly to Corfu and then transit to Paxos via hydrofoil, water taxi, or ferry. You can reach Paxos either from mainland (Igoumenitsa) or Corfu. Corfu has only one airport, ‘Kapodistrias,’ which is near to Corfu Town aprox 10-15 minutes with a taxi.

From April to late October, direct flights to Corfu are available from most European airports. To prevent missing the final hydrofoil, early morning departures are essential. You will need a taxi from Corfu airport to port. A lot of taxis are always outside of the airport, so you don’t have to worry.

There may be a lag between transfers, but the harbor amenities are great, including a luggage storage area. In Corfu port you will find a cafe, and the offices of the ferry companies operating the trip between Corfu and Paxos.

From Igoumenitsa there are 2 ferry companies operating the trip between mainland and Paxos :

Other ways to reach Paxos is with a private sea taxi which are available 24/7. The cost for a private transfer is between 300 – 350 euro. If there are more people you can share a private sea taxi.

Normally if there is no option of hydrofoil or Despina on that day, there are always others on the sea taxi so don’t be put off by the cost.
