    Clean & clear warm waters
    Lovely day at the beach as only a short stroll from our villa. 2 x Sunbed & brolley were 20€. Crystal clear warm shallow waters. Life guard on duty as well. Need to get here by 10:00am or no chance of a bed. Continuing works to put up more rattan type brolley shelters and add more beds. But still very busy. Downside was overflowing bins. But was a lovely day and will be back for sundowner swims.

    Another great stay
    Accommodation is brilliant we had a one bedroom apartment by the pool. The beds were lovely really comfortable each one had a mattress topper. Rooms are really big, Maid service every day except Sunday rooms were clean a safe (paid for at reception) . A TV with English channels, Air conditioner if required 70 euros a week. A fridge, 2 cooking rings, kettle and toaster if required. All staff were polite and friendly nothing to much trouble.

    Lovely beach but HOT!!!
    Beautiful sandy beach. Crystal clear and warm waters. A few large boulders in the water to be careful with. Area offers reasonably priced food and drink. However because of the narrow beach bordered by cliffs there’s little breeze and it gets extremely hot. We had to leave around 3pm as it became too hot for us. Worth visiting however

    Shame about the rip off sunbeds.
    As others have said the sunbed mafia have taken over this spot and are charging €25 for 2 beds and a parasol. If you get here early there are beds immediately to the left as you walk down the ramp that are €15 for the same combo, and I heard that there are also some at the extreme right side of the beach for the same money. If the bed is made of wood then they are the rip off ones, the metal ones are just as good but €10 cheaper. Luckily our apartment was close to the beach so we could get there early having said that if we couldn't get a €15 euro bed then it would be back to the pool. Shame really because Lee beach is lovely beach. A lady who has had an apartment on the island for years told us it is down to Albanian gangs and not the locals who are responsible for the hike. Still if they are out bidding the locals for the franchise then the Greek Authorities need to step in because it will be the downfall of the place. Can't believe how much prices have risen generally but I suppose while people will pay it, that will be the going rate.

    Beautiful but pricey beds......
    Would have got 5+ if they didn't charge €25 for two beds and a brolly!!!! Beautiful beach, shallow warm water and soft sand, gets quite busy but very chilled later on, toilets nearby that you have to pay to use! We would have spent more time there but pricey which is a shame :(

    Lovely Beach, Overpriced Sunbeds
    The beach itself is lovely, water is crystal clear and the nearby cafe does some good food very reasonably priced. Sadly at 25 Euros a day for 2 sun beds it's just too pricey for what it is - apparently the people who were inflating the prices of sunbeds in Mykonos were kicked out by the government and have now descended onto Pefkos, Lindos and Lardos with prices dramatically increasing. It's bad enough that I wouldn't return here solely for this reason!

We've been coming to Pefkos on and off for about 10 years. We absolutely love the beach and the multitude of good restaurants and bars they have throughout the town. We are not pool people so always go to the beach, sadly as has been noted by other travelers the cost of the sun beds is now 25 Euro! So if you are on a 14 night break as a couple that 350 Euro. This is ridiculous and I simply cannot justify paying this amount of money to lay on the beach in Pefkos. Hopefully if more people avoid the beach the cost can be reduced to something more acceptable.

What has happened to Lee beach!? Its so dirty now compared to my last visit a few years ago!
Sunbeds are really expensive at a charge of €25 you would think the beach would be kept clean, sunbed owners should hold some responsibility for this with what they are charging. Fag ends, bits of plastic and even glass totally ruined what was a beautiful place to sunbathe, so sad to see it in this state. Have opted to go elsewhere in future.

Unfortunately the greedy Greek sun bed mafia have moved in on lee beach pefkos.
25 euros for most sun beds , except for the wonderful people at flyers bar , who rent out sun beds at 15euros. Vote with your feet.

Sunbed prices are a complete rip-off. 25 euros for two sunbeds and a parasol between Lee Beach and Philosophis Beach at Pefkos. The operator must be raking in at least 1,000 euros a day.
