Anything changed this year? Are the small beach taverna & sunbeds still being run by those that have had them for a number of years? Yiannis & Yiannis to the left of the taverna (if stood in the sea!) I know each was up for the "auction" & put up for tender.
Today, I have heard that all is not well down at the Banana's. Big Banana looks like a war zone, the tavernas have been pulled down and there is a lot of rubbish around and there are no beds or parasols at all. They have built a large taverna behind the far left of Big Banana but it is unfinished and not up and running.
On Small Banana, the taverna is open, but who is running it is not known. There are no sunbeds or parasols on the beach at the moment. Hopefully, there will be some in 3 weeks!!
I believe the auctions for the tavernas and sunbeds take place sometime this month, so hopefully in a few more weeks things may be running a bit more smoothly.
Thanks Richard. 4 weeks until we come, so fingers crossed. This will be our 12th visit to the island & we would hate for it to change too drastically. We have made such good friends with some of the islanders.
