Kefalos was once the capital of Kos island, but is now a laid-back hillside town split into two equally pretty parts. There’s the village, with its sloping streets and whitewashed houses, and the picturesque coast which has a gorgeous beach, harbour filled with yachts and colourful fishing boats, and a clutch of excellent bars and restaurants. Kefalos holidays are perfect for those who are keen to relax on the beach but are also game for exploring.
As it’s just 40 kilometres southwest of Kos Town, there’s plenty of opportunity for day trips into the hustle and bustle, but everything you need is on the doorstep. Whether you fancy a multi-course Greek meal or a slow sunset stroll along the harbour, want to admire ancient ruins and churches or take on an action-packed wind surfing session on Kamari beach, holidays to Kefalos have plenty to offer.
