As you arrive at Copla the owners Anneta and Triantafilos with their bartenders and DJs welcome you. After a hot summer route Copla is the ultimate delight.
Frozen coffees, cold drinks, lovely cocktails and delicious club sandwiches are served. Where should we sit, at the bars or at the wooden tables around the pool? I can’t help noticing that the wooden stripes of the chairs are the same as the ones of the trellis that provides shadow while permitting air circulation.
Everything is lovely here and the “holiday spirit” peaks. You will not know what to choose: swimming in the sea, sunbathing on the sandy beach, swimming in the pool of Copla or relax in the Jacuzzi? You can start from the sea and return to Copla later when the afternoon parties with the shots begin.
The owners wanted to create a building in perfect harmony with the natural environment that would reflect memories from their childhood when people would go to the beach to pick the "copla", woods brought to shore from the sea.
"Wood is a corruptible material. It brings in mind wooden huts, wooden ships of a past era. Copla lies on the beach as a sensitive surface of wooden “breathing” extension of those memories." - (source: akkm.gr )
This effort was recognized at the 4th Biennale of Young Architects where Copla beach bar was awarded the prize for the integration to the natural environment.

It is a white sandy beach with 1.500m length and 60m width that lies on the base of a hill (300m height) and it is the best organized beach of the island.In this beautiful blue beach you can enjoy swimming in crystal waters. This spot is being used by the paragliding athletes. Organized hotels with panoramic sea view offer their hospitality and everything moves in a holiday rhythm. As you gaze from above the enormous beach so you yearn to touch the blue sea. In the latest twist of the road to Kathisma beach and very closely on the vertical cliff near the the sand, you see the pool of Copla Beach Bar, a unique wooden construction which is integrated perfectly into its natural environment.
