The capital of Paxos is Gaios, home to a pleasant bay, and the island’s main harbour with fishing boats and ferries. It’s a town of pleasant winding streets, charming tavernas, and the island’s museum. On the north coast of Paxos is the town of Lakka, again located in a bay, surrounded by verdant olive trees. Along the harbour there’s a choice of pretty bars and tavernas, and a great view of the sheltered crystal clear blue waters which are ideal for swimming. Other delightful harbour towns on Paxos are Loggos and Ozias.
As well as towns and traditional tavernas, there are other things to do on Paxos too. The island’s main attractions are beautiful natural scenery and wonderful beaches. Highlights include the impressive Tripitos Arch, the ancient healing hot springs, Erimitis beach, and the island’s many spectacular sea caves.
