Gaios is the charming port town and spreads itself along the waterfront. You can enter Gaios from a northerly or southerly direction passing two small islands, the first at the mouth of Gaios harbour is called Panayia (Virgin Mary) on which there is a splendid white monastery. On the 15th August, Assumption Day the gates the monastery are open and everyone travels across by boat to the monastery to pay homage. Gaios harbour and the approaching inlet is very safe for overnight mooring for all types of boats. Water and fuel vehicles patrol on a daily basis.
