Photographer's Note

You can see here a larger version of the photo.

During the daily cruise we had the opportunity to stop for one and half hour at Gaios port,the capital of Paxoi island.It is a very charmy port with a lot of luxurious sailing boats and motor boats cover all of the waterfront as you can see on the foreground of the photo.
Again 'Captain Hook' during its returning to Preveza passed in front of me during my relaxing time in a coffee shop.


Gaios is the picturesque seaside capital of Paxos. The approximation is made by Gaios prey passing between two small islands. At first, the island of the Virgin, is a beautiful white monastery. In mid-August the monastery gates open and everyone to worship.

The second, Agios Nikolaos forms a natural breakwater which leads to the scenic entrance (old) port of Gaios. The island of Saint Nicholas are two small churches, St. Nicholas and St. John and an old castle which was built in 1423 and for a long time protected the island.

The square of Gaios is the ideal place to experience the atmosphere of the capital. You will find various restaurants around the picturesque streets and leading to tourist and other shops, cafes and restaurants even more. In the center of the square is the church of the Holy Apostles. The port of Gaios is very safe for any kind of docking ship. Easily seen vehicles supply (water and fuel) and going to the seaside.
