Looking for any update re beaches/sunbeds/parasols Our favourite is Mandraki. Please can someone confirm if/when sunbeds are available/likely to be available & if Taverna is open.We're there for 2 weeks from 5 July.
The whole beach licence paraphernalia is a joke this year. I have heard that the licences will not be allocated until June 24th. Two weeks ago I did not see any sunbeds anywhere apart from one or two strewn around the beach. I have been on Mandraki today & they are up and running with beds and brollies. I was on Elias two days ago & there were no organised sunbeds or brollies. I believe the Mayor has tried to put a stop to the beds until the licences have been issued but most are now beginning to ignor him. The tavernas are open
24 June sounds promising as we don't arrive until 5 July. We don't like "too organised" nor do we like too many sunbeds all lined up in rows. But we do like the option to hire a bed & brolly for a lazy day on the beach with regular trips to the taverna for essential supplies! I can almost hear Mandraki calling me Does anyone know if there's likely to be a taverna of any kind on Kolios this year? The bag is always packed just in case!
kevb, Mandraki is one of my fave beaches. Just love the wine served in the little tin jugs on the beach (my profile pic!) And the feta salads with "patatas" And just the general laid back feel. Can't wait to visit early next month.
