Gaios - Paxos
Gaios is concerned as the capital of Paxos Island and the biggest port, with large ferries, hydrofoils, sea taxis and (occasionally) the hydro plane from Corfu.
Gaios is the largest town on the island. It is still relatively small and quaint with Venetian architecture, a maze of side streets and pedestrians square on the seafront stripe.
Restaurants and snack bars are scattered throughout the town, to cover all tastes and demands.
The surrounding olive grove is offering a high standard of local Greek cuisine, which is a must for each visitor.
Local amenities include a post office, banks, chemist, doctor’s surgery, gift shops, high-school, jewelery and handmade craft shops, as well as supermarkets, bakeries and butchers.
Gaios hosts the only night club on the island and its range of waterfront bars is extensive from a quiet traditional coffee place to livelier bars playing a variety of music.
There is a limited number of taxis based here and a bus service, which is not very regular, but when running enables you to get to the resorts of Loggos and Lakka or smaller neighbourhoods in between.
Gaios is one of the most popular and cosmopolitan resorts in Mediterranean.
Hundreds of VIPs are visiting Gaios or living at their private properties every summer and finding a place to stay in the peak season is a big bet.
