Location and activities

Perched high on a pine-forested hill, the resort has a funicular down to the secluded sandy beach of Karavostasi and blissful views over to the islands of Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu. To get under the skin of this marvellous setting, the resort offers full-day private yacht cruises during which you’ll get the chance to swim in the turquoise waters of Antipaxos with its glittering blue coves that are often compared to those of the Caribbean, visit the famous Blue Caves and explore lovely Paxos itself. Another wonderful thing to do its take to the hills with one of the resort’s local guides for supervised hiking experiences on the Ancient Dimokastro hiking trail, tailored to all ages and abilities and particularly memorable in the early morning or late afternoon.

Back at the resort, here are lots of activities to do together or apart, including water sports at MarBella Elix Karavostasi Beach.
