The picturesque bay of Lakka is the second largest of the three main villages on Paxos Island in the northern Ionian and is a windsurfing and dinghy sailing haven and there are some great places for sailing yachts to anchor too. Lakka has many great restaurants and tavernas near the waterfront and along the lanes and alleyways that lead from the harbour into the village, all of which serve a good selection of traditional Greek cuisine. In some tavernas, the owners take you into their restaurant which is a unique experience as they tell you about what they are serving and show you the fresh local produce, all done in the friendly Greek style! The family friendly bars help you relax and unwind after a day sailing, whilst you sit back on the water’s edge and watch the boats come in and out. The cocktails here are particularly delicious!
Lakka is a magnificent setting on Paxos island, at the head of a long, curving inlet with water that is the most beautiful shade of turquoise. Hills covered in trees drop gently down to the sea, providing shelter from the prevailing winds which makes this an ideal harbour to stop in during your Ionian yacht charter when visiting Paxos.
