What To See And Do In Palairos, Aktio-Vonitsa, Greece

Palairos is located in the south ionian sea on mainland Greece. Palairos is technically a City and a modern town but doesn't feel like it. Instead it feels like a Greek village with all the charm and history to go with it. Palairos boasts one of the most beautiful sunsets i've ever seen and not as a one off but rather a daily occurrence.

I spent a couple of seasons living and working in this beautiful town and want to share with you the best things to do and see here and in the surrounding areas. This beautiful city has views in every direction weather you are looking back from sea, up the hill looking down over the rooftops or looking out to see, to view the stunning mountains across the bay and even a peak of Lefkada Island on a clear day. This sheltered area of the inland sea (an area of the south Ionian) gets all the sun and only a little wind, which can get very intense in summer.

What To Do In Palairos

Whilst working at Neilson I took full advantage of my access to the water. If you are staying at Neilson most activities are included (See the section below on the Neilson Resort). However if you are not staying at Neilson you can still take advantage of this awesome location and the water conditions.

Scuba Diving

The scuba diving school is based on the Vounaki Beach Club (Neilson) site however it is also open to none guests. It is a PADI school and the instructor / owner is an Elite instructor and was fantastic. I would suggest reaching out to him direct to organise this. I believe he is also now based on Lefkada island Click here for his facebook. I did my PADI open water with him.<
