Overview Kefalos is a purpose-built holiday resort with a laid-back atmosphere. Situated in the southwest of Kos, it's surrounded by spectacular scenery and visitors can expect a charming and authentic experience as the village has retained many traditional ways. The resort has plenty of good restaurants and a couple of small nightclubs, but is mainly geared towards tourists looking for a relaxing beach holiday.

Shopping The usual souvenir shops and grocery stores dot Kefalos. Seasoned shoppers usually find themselves heading to Kardamena or Kos Town, where there are more shops, markets and boutiques to choose from. Visitors can buy anything from homemade jams and honey to expensive, hand-crafted jewellery.

Restaurants Kefalos boasts some of Kos' best restaurants. Travellers will find familiar international staples and exciting local options.

Nightlife Though its nightlife isn't as well-known as some other Greek resorts, Kefalos is by no means boring. A number of low-key bars offer cocktails and live music.

Activities The beach in Kefalos is a mix of sand and shingle, and is ideal for lazy holidays in the sun. The area's clear, warm sea make it well suited for watersports, which visitors can arrange on location. Some of Kos' best beaches are nearby, including Paradise Beach. Visitors will also find fascinating historical sites scattered around the island, particularly in the capital of Kos Town. Boat tours head to the spectacular volcanic island of Nisyros, and to Rhodes.

Negatives The shingle beach in Kefalos can be very hard on feet. Visitors should wear good sandals.
