About the Island
The green clad Ionian Island of Paxos is situated near Corfu.
Nestled on a beautiful harbour is Gaios, the main town of Paxos island.Overlooking the lush green islets of Agios Nikolas and Panagias, gracious Venetian and neo-classical mansions and mastic trees line the shore keeping watch over a colourful string of traditional fishing boats, yachts and cruisers.
Gaios is the main port for regular ferry and speedboat connections with Corfu, mainland ports of Igoumenitsa and Parga and the Italian port of Brindisi. Markets, shops, cafes and patisseries are found as one strolls through the flower-ladened, narrow streets leading off the waterfront plateia.
Easy access to water taxis; boat, car and motorbike rentals; banks and a vibrant nightlife make the picturesque town of Gaios and its surrounds a wonderful focal point for exploring the beauty of Paxos by land and sea.
