Gaios is the Capital of the Island. It is a very picturesque harbour town with cafes and tavernas and a Venetian Town Square. The best beach nearest here is Mogonisi, and is the best sand beach on Paxos. Mogonisi is actually an islet connected to Paxos by stepping stones. There are many coves for you to discover and explore. The scenery around here is very flat and although the sea is excellent for swimming, and the coves interesting to investigate, it is only possible to sunbathe if you donąt mind sunbathing on rocks.
