At the southern point of Paxos, one of the best beaches on the island is the sandy beach of Mongonissi, which has recently been dynamited out of cliffs and filled with sand. It has easy access by road from Gaios. Wonderful, clear blue sea and perfectly safe bathing. There is free mooring for up to 50 boats and yachts. Shower and toilet facilities are available along with wind surfing and paddle boats
There is also a friendly family run taverna with evening Greek dancing.
