Kefalos is a beautiful, typical Greek town on the far south-western tip of Kos. Bathing in Mediterranean sunshine, this town is more relaxed than the party towns of Kardamena and Kos Town, but still has lots going on. With a long, golden sandy beach and clear water, families and couples on a romantic getaway can spend days enjoying the tranquility here, and try out new watersports for an adrenaline boost. Explore the streets of Kefalos with its whitewashed houses and blue doors, and find a street café to indulge in some delicious local foods. With a fun and laid-back nightlife, enjoy friendly bars, candlelit dinners, and cocktails on the beach.
Things to do
This Greek town sits on the southern peninsula of Kos with spectacular views and beautiful beaches. Although the warm sand is tempting every day, there are so many things to do and around the town that you’ll want to spend at least a little bit of time away from the beach. Wander the winding streets of the town itself where every house is whitewashed, and every door is a pure Mediterranean blue. There are several ancient ruins very close to Kefalos, and many more further along the island. With fantastic seafood, lots of watersports, heaps of history, and the golden beach, you and your family will never run out of things to do.
Kefalos holidays are best taken in June, July and August for hot, dry weather and warm seas.
