The east coast of the island is recommended to search for nice coves. The west coast offers a more rugged landscape, with steep cliffs, that can reach 200 meters high in many cases. Here is where most caves are found, many of which can only be accessed by a boat.Moreover, Paxi has many small sandy beaches that get crowded in summer. However, waters remain crystal and clear, ideal for swimming and for practicing some other water activities, such as scuba diving, snorkelling and fishing. The most important beaches are Glyfada, Levrechio,Orkos, Monodendri and Arkoudaki.
