Bubble Beach / Paradaise Beach
On theKefalos Peninsula in the southern part of Kos there is a so-called Bubble Beach, which lives up to its name. The beach is better known by the name Paradaise Beach. Through the nearby volcanic island Nisyros there are also some volcanic lines that Meet Kos Island. These hot gases seep through the ocean floor and bubble up to the surface. The bubble area is located on the eastern edge of Paradaise Beach and is marked with a blue buoy that reads “Bubble Area”. In order to marvel at the bubbles, you should definitely not forget your snorkel, diving goggles and underwater camera and have them with you. Note that around noon, numerous excursion boats anchor directly in front of the buoy and it is therefore often overcrowded.
The Bubble Beach is one of the Must Sees in Kos.
On the Kefalos Peninsula in the southwestern part of the island is Kefalos Bay with a kilometer-long sandy beach. The beach stretches from the ruins of the ancient basilica of Agios Stefanos to the port of Kefalos, with different beach sections. The most beautiful sandy beach is located opposite the small island of Kastri – about 80 meters from the shore. This can be reached by swimming (at least half can be reached standing up) or by pedal boat and is home to a small chapel. Towards the port, the beach section becomes more sandy, pebbly and finally stony.
