DO NOT USE KATELINA'S HIRE KEFALOS - Looked forward to using a scooter around the island and a bit of exploring. Hired one from KATELINA's filled it with fuel and within an hour it broke down, someone came out and stated it could not be fixed. They said I could have it another day for free (should think so too!!). Turned up on the day and was told I now could not have it??? I asked for a refund and was bluntly told "WE DON'T DO REFUNDS". So with the fuel I was 42 Euros out of pocket and two wasted half-days. I'm sure there are better hire companies out there and in future I will use my Visa Card, that way I have some protection.
This is a great beach. Very sandy with a nice breeze - welcome when you're in the middle of a Greek heatwave! You can walk out quite a long way into the sea - no nasty rocks or sudden dips - and it's fantastic for swimming.
The taverna is funny. As it is the only one here it gets very busy but the service is a little on the chaotic side. You do need to be patient. We bonded with people on other tables through nervous smiles - the family running the place were all screaming and shouting at each other in the kitchen.
Importantly, there are clean public toilets next to the taverna.
Worth a day out of Kardamena.
Went here once which is the first time on this beach. Was very quiet due to the time of year but the beach was excellent,the sea warm and calm.The only drawback is where we were there was only one taverna which was some way away and up a bit of a gravel track-I had nothing on my feet!
WE WENT TO SUNNY.. MANY TIMES,RELAXING QUIET,WELL IF YOU MOVE AWAY FROM YORGOS AT HIS BEACH SHACK IT IS,HE HAS A TENDANCY TO BLAST THE MUSIC A BIT..THERE WAS TWO TAVERNA'S AND BARS NEAR TO THE BEACH..YORGOS SOLD COLD DRINKS FROM HIS SHACK,,,ONLY PROBLEM WAS THE SEA GOT DEEP PRETTY QUICK SO NOT REALLY GOOD FOR SMALL KIDS..BUT EXELLENT FOR CHILLING...OH..BE CAREFUL IF YOU TAKE THE CAR DOWN
My hubby and I hired a Jimny car and made our way around the island. We were looking forward to going to Paradise Beach, we decided to check out Sunny Beach as the name took my interest.. we found this beach to be our favourite on the island, there were not many ppl and there was only one row of sun beds and NO KIDS.. the only downfall was there was no bar or restaurant in sight. So after some relaxing time there we made our way to Paradise Beach and we were disappointed.. it was beautiful but soo busy and small!
We headed out of kefalos and went to paradise beach but the sunbeds were so crammed in together and they charged 7euros!
So the next day we drove just a bit further on and found sunny beach..heaven!
Dead quiet with just a few sunbeds and only 5euros
Only thing was the moped we hired from katerinas in kefalos was so crap it wouldnt get back up the steep cliff with a passenger so i ended up walking while my boyfriend wheelied on up!
Oh yeah thanks to the nice couple that felt sorry for me and gave me a lift one day in their nice air conditioned car!
Only thing i would say about sunny beach is there is not really anywhere to nip for a drink so take supplies.
This was a fabulous beach, only about 20 sunbeds dotted along the water's edge, plenty of room, and very clean.
You can also drive your car or bike round down to the beach, so no parking problems.
Overall, one of the best beaches on Kos
