The Islet of Agios Nikolaos (or Ai-Nikolas) in Paxi, Greece: Agios Nikolaos is the jewel of Gaios port, a lush green islet that covers almost the entire entrance. It was named after the small chapel that lies. The islet was built for the protection of the pirates as well as the 15th-century Venetian fortress built on top of it dominating the whole area.
Today only ruins of the fortress can be seen but it is well worth a visit for its breathtaking view and peaceful atmosphere in this amazing setting that attracts every visitor. On this islet, you will also see another small chapel dedicated to Saint John as well as an old windmill. Small boats depart from the port of Gaios for the small islet.
