We can at last put some of the rumours to rest, Castello, a.k.a Baby (Babe?) Beach, is on the brink of opening. Not as a hotel or exclusive bungalows. The beach itself remains free of rows of umbrellas. Nor are there signs of a noisy water sport center. So most of the wintertime rhubarbs were, not surprisingly, based purely on speculation and hot air.
A refurbished castle in Kamini

Latest “News” Flash: Castello opened last night (June 11) and is, according to first-hand reports, set soon to become a Mediterranean-style restaurant. It is already a nightclub, serving cocktails at standard exclusive prices!
Predicted Future Rhubarb: Sources tell us that Castello will be running its own sea shuttle with hourly service to and from Hydra Port for only €2.50. A novel idea, but if history is anything to go by, this innovation may attract several rhubarbs and potentially invite blockades from the resident water taxi and ciaqui unions! θα δούμε!
