The best way to Antipaxos is with your own boat. We, however, took the ferry to the island.

The problem with going by ferry in midsummer is that so does everyone else. The pretty little sandy beach looked idyllic as we approached. Shortly after, having disembarked, it was a different story. We staked our position, really close to the water and went to the cafe for a drink. When we returned, a family was inches from our towels, legs in the sea.

I stepped carefully across the waterline wondering how wide the beach was. Naturally, I measured it in feet.

    Thanks Michelle. I always like receiving your comments. Where you live certainly sounds bliss! Europe's best beaches are often very crowded. In France and Italy you often have to pay to get on the best of the beaches. Antipaxos is a tiny island very close to bigger Paxos, which is dwarfed by its other, more distant neighbour Corfu. On Paxos almost all the beaches are stony, so that's why people flock to the sandy beach of Antipaxos. It's nonetheless rather lovely!

    You seem to take it all in stride. (It's particularly annoying at open air concerts on the hill...)
