The capital of Paxos Island (Greece) is Gaois. It is a pretty town with a busy harbour (when there are boats anchored on day trips) lined with cafe terraces, shops and restaurants.
The island is small so its best to stay here for just a few days unless your idea of holiday is going slow, less sightseeing and not doing much. A day trip is just as perfect.
We were here last year and I took a lot of pictures! Here are my other posts of Paxos Island:
- Sailing on Gaios Strait and Arriving on Gaios Harbour
- The Little White Beach in Gaios
- Spoon Sweets in Gaios
- Lunch at Taverna Spaghetteria Mediterraneo
Where Paxos Island is on the map:
The little island is just below Corfu and quite near to mainland Greece.
Windows, doors, sunshine, flower pots and laundry.
A wine cellar and warehouse.
The main square of Gaios is filled with outdoor cafe terraces.
The Church of Analipsi on the main square of Gaios town.
Side shopping streets, lots of shops, outdoor cafe terraces and restaurants.
The pirate's taverna.
Gaios has still many Venetian style houses.
Streetside cafe terraces facing the water.
The statue of Georgios Anemogiannis on the port of Gaios. He fought to free Greece from the Turks.
The port of Gaios is formed like a horse shoe. This picture is taken from the other side of the harbour.
A very inviting private outdoor terrace.
