Gaios town

Gaios is the capital of the island of Paxos. Gaios is a natural channel that looks like a small fjord. It is a very picturesque town with a very beautiful Venetian square, harbor, cafes and taverns. The best and closest beach in Gaios is Mogonissi, which is a small island connected with Paxos with stones. To visit it, you can walk through the stones and reach the best sandy beach on the island.

Mithology

According to Greek mythology, the small island of Paxos and the nearby island of Antipaxos were formed when Neptune threw its trident on Corfu in order to detach a piece of it and make a beautiful peaceful island away from the Gods and people to live with Amphitrite, sea goddess.

Food & Beverages

Like all the Ionian islands, Paxos and Antipaxos, thanks to their climate, have a large production of excellent quality agricultural products: olive oil, citrus, thyme honey, grapes and excellent quality wines.
