Antipaxos (Greek: Αντίπαξος, pronounced [ɐnˈdipɐksos]) is a small island (5 km²) in Greece, about 3 kilometres (2 miles) to the south of Paxos. It is administratively part of the municipality of Paxoi in Corfu regional unit in western Greece. As of 2011, the resident population of the island was 20, which increased in the summer.[1] Largely covered in vineyards, Antipaxos has several beaches and one harbour, Agrapidia.

It has three main beaches: Vrika (white sand), Mesovrika (pebbles) and Voutoumi (pebbles) and it can be reached by 15-minute ride with a sea-taxi from the port of Gaios in Paxos.
