Gaios is the main Port of Paxoi and the capital of the smallest of the main Ionian Islands. It is located on the east coast of the island and it is made up of a maze of small alleys and a central square at the seafront. The visitor can taste high quality local cuisine in the numerous restaurants instated in the town and the olive groves surrounding it.
Approaching Paxoi from the North, you will reach Laka, a fishing village with an almost circular natural harbour, delimited by two headlands rendering it to a safe shelter from the open sea. The scenery is completed by the presence of an harmonious combination of olive groves and cypress trees. The bay is a picturesque spot with turquoise waters over a sandy bottom under a lush landscape with olive trees. Although the bay is popular during the summer it is worth visiting as it is a safe mooring spot in addition to a beautiful swimming spot.
The east coast of the island is the seat of Logos, a small fishing village that comes alive in the summer months and offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the greek hospitality and taste the greek entertainment at its simplest form.
Kipiadi Bay is a large bay that can host many yachts and during the summer period is a popular. The anchorage in turquoise waters sits in contrast with the white pebbled beach in the background.
