Paradise Beach, Kefalos

Beach Nature / Park
Home to white sand and crystal clear water, Paradise Beach delivers on the promise of its name. One of the most famous beaches on Kos, Paradise features amenities to keep visitors comfortable and happy, such as sunbeds and umbrellas to rent and a variety of restaurants. If you want to mix in some activity with your sunbathing, you'll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports here. Make sure to bring your snorkel gear to get a close-up look at an area of water where many air bubbles rise from the ocean floor. Volcanic activity on the neighboring island causes the strange phenomenon. Look for this in-sea jacuzzi by the water sports hut, or, if in doubt, ask locals about "bubble beach."

  • We heard many good reviews on the beach and decided to visit late in the afternoon, after another Beach (from those that come before going to Paradise Cephalus). Luckily for us we decided to go an hour that most people leaving the beach, otherwise there was jam-packed. You can purchase drinks or snacks from the beach store (CAUTION: we do not serve at the beach). Sunbeds are charged extra, 8e Kit (because we went in the late afternoon we paid 5E). The beach is sandy and there are water sports nearby. I think it was a nice beach, without anything special, though, to have someone to visit anyway. Actually there were much better options before reaching the Paradise beach.
