THE ISLAND OF PAXOS

GAIOS

Gaios is the main village on the island and the centre for communications, as the hydrofoil and car ferries arrive at and leave from the New Port, and sea taxis leave from the very pretty main square. It is also where most of the shops and services are located: the post office, electricity offices, telephone (OTE) office, council buildings, and the tax office are all situated in Gaios. It is a very attractive village with a particularly attractive harbour where many yachts and small boats are moored.

Gaios has a good range of facilities:

Beaches There is a small but attractive town beach about five minutes walk from the main square and the other beaches on the island can easily be reached either by local bus or by hiring a car, scooter or small boat. However, many people who stay in Gaios choose to take either the speedboat water taxi or the traditional caique to Anti Paxos with its wonderful sandy beaches.

Supermarkets and Other Shops - Gaios is the main shopping centre on the island and there are several supermarkets in the village with a wide choice of food and other everyday items. There are also several bakeries and butchers' shops, and a wide variety shops selling clothes, jewellery, DIY, gardening equipment etc.

Tavernas, Bars and Kafenios - There is a vast range of tavernas, bars, kafenios and fast-food outlets in the square, around the town and along the harbour front.

Currency Exchange - There is a bank and a couple of ATMs in Gaios and many shops and tavernas now take credit card payments.

Sports - There are boats for hire from the harbour and there is a good football pitch on the road to Magazia, where the local Paxos team plays every other Sunday in the winter.

Churches - There is an Orthodox church in the square and a number of others elsewhere in the village.
