If you make the effort to go to the sandy area near the harbour it is more than worth it. The beach is sandy and gently slopes out, most other areas are shingle and pebble until you get out a foot or so. The sea at either is beautifully clear and not too cold at this time of year and... More

Although we always stay in Kos town, no holiday is complete without a trip to Kamari ( Kefalos ) Beach. A long stretch of bathing beach with facilities and water sports, backed by an excellent array of tavernas. Whenever we visit , the latter always seem to be extremely popular with local Greek families - this says it all!

Situated at the bottom of the road from Kefalos, it is not somewhere I would like to spend much time on. The bay is quite picturesque, and there is a small fishing harbour with small working boats, but the beach is also quite pebbly, not to be recommended to the "All day long beach dwellers"

The beach was covered in rubbish. It was cleaned .. but at the end of our holiday. They had had some bad storms, which had washed away a lot of sand and deposited the rubbish, but still.

It was a quiet place, the beach was reasonable, but not brilliant. A lot of locals use the restaurants, there is a lovely island to photograph with a typical church sat on the rock. It's all a bit out of the way.

We travelled here a few years ago and found this beach while driving around, one of the best beaches we found on our trip. We weren't brave enough to swim out to the island but wish we had.

This was our local beach beds and shades mainly belong to the restaurants along the sea front not a wide beach but sandy. lots of good places to eat or get a drink and a couple of super markets if you want to 'self cater'
