The largest settlement of the three main ones on Paxos, Gaios is the capital of the island. Actually, this is the only settlement that is big enough to warrant the description of being a town.
The main activity in Gaios is centered on the picturesque harbor and you will find yachts of all sizes and hues vying for space here during summer months. Many tourists prefer to sit down at one of the open air cafes around the harbor and watch the people and yachts milling around all day.

If you would like to explore the little town on your own, just walk down the shore towards the south and you will discover many beautiful, quiet bathing spots that offer complete solitude.
