Kefalos – Kos


Transfer time – 50 minutes

Best For – Families and couples looking for a laid back resort

Kefalos is a very scenic resort perched on the hillside overlooking Kamari Bay, it gives you a true sense of a traditional Greek holiday. The resort spills down the hillside onto the coastline, the bottom of the hill has the newest hotels and apartments and the more traditional accommodation is located at the top of the hillside. The views are outstanding from the top of the hill and the surroundings are lush and green.

The beach in Kefalos is a long sandy and pebble beach, gently shelving into the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean sea, and of course you have the stunning Kamari beach a short stroll away, both perfect for families who want shallow water to play in and views to die for. There is a small amount of water sports available for the more energetic but you would need to go to one of the more major resorts for a larger choice.

Kefalos’ night-life is certainly gentle, with nights spent in the village centre having a drink or spending time over a meal. There is a selection of cafés and bars offering local beer and wines and spirits, there’s even a cocktail bar or two. Kefalos has one disco for dancing til the early hours. And there is more choice in nearby Kamari too. The restaurants and tavernas have a very traditional feel and cater extremely well for families, the tavernas are famous for the Greek dancing and plate smashing too, fantastic entertainment for all the family.

Kefalos is the most southerly resort in Kos, making days out to many locations a long drive, however, everyone should visit Kos Town, it is beautiful, steeped in historical wonders and the places to wine and dine are superb. There are a choice of water parks on the island, lovely days out for the young and young at heart. There is a multitude of boats trips leaving from various parts of the island, and that is a perfect way to get out and about and see a bit of the island.

Kos is the 2nd largest of the Dodecanese islands and seeps history, culture, crusader castles, minarets, palm trees, massive choices in resorts, some lively, some quiet and some of Greece’s best beaches. It is a jewel in Greece’s crown, definitely worth a visit.
