The title Paradise Beach does not express my personal judgment about the beach in this photo but is an actual name of this place. It is supposedly the most beautiful beach on the island. Paradise Beach looks more attractive from the opposite direction and therefore it is rarely showed from this POV.
Guidebooks are pretty clear about the Kos Island, they say: The natural environment of Kos is not spectacular as such. (...) The number of testimonies to the Hellenistic and Roman periods on Kos is fairly limited – unlike the number of sunshine hours. (...) In the ranking of most popular Greek destinations, Kos occupies number four behind Crete, Rhodes and Corfu. A main reason for this are the many all-inclusive hotels...
It basically means that people choosing Kos Island do so mainly due to the numerous blue flag sandy beaches and not for the beauty of architecture or nature. That is why I had to upload at least one beach photo from Kos.

Hi dear Mariusz
Ya I agree with you. This beach is surely paradise in the world! So timely posting you did, as Summer season has just finished and we have to stop having a Nostalgia for Summer passing. Outstanding sharp and clear image in the detail as usual. Thank you for your sharing and have a good day!

Quel beau point de vue sur la plage.Elle est de toute beauté sous cette lumière très forte. Les vacanciers semblent bien en profiter.

Certainly it is better to be on the beach than anywhere else. This is total relaxation, worries are far from people. The bank is nicely framed. The picture is bright, colorful, sharpness and depth. Bravo.
Have a nice day

When I seen the thumb, I thought that the title is perfect. As it buckets rain in Dublin today, I look at this and it is indeed a vision of paradise. The composition is smooth and very pleasing to the eye. I do have to wonder what those dark patches in the sea are though, hopefully not some big shark waiting to surprise somebody!
All the best

The colorful parasols gave an extra vivid tone along the beach, Mariusz.
The bay in a perfect curve is most fabulous.
Lovely taken pic., I like the POV from higher spot.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

A fantastic view that shows the beauty of this beach, a sandy browning and a lovely enclosed bay shaped in form, certainly an ideal place to enjoy of these turquoise waters.
Magnificent lighting that conveys the beauty of the beautiful day and place.
Have a nice weekend.

its great to see some new recent photo's from you on a new trip :)
reading your note, good for you to show the other side, the darker side if you want to call it that.
well....if this is the bad side, i wonder what the good looks like!
its all in perspective right....cause here in canada, we'd love to have a warm beach like this!
good clear shot with the ocean opening up to the side.
I like it

An eyecatching seaview taken from excellent vantage point captured in good coloring and well exposed despite harshness of light. The deep blue renders outstanding contrast and a real pull to viewers with some nice bright dotted of colors to create the excitement. Tremedous depth and lovely play of shadows. Well done,

A lovely beach with a good effect from this pov, I like the curve and the blue sea, light is well captured.
