From Kamari Bay to bubble beach

Kamari Bay is actually where holidays mainly take place in Kefalos, with the newer tourist area spreading along the beach road where you’ll come across a selection of village shops, whilst the old sleepy town of Kefalos is set uphill and enjoys a peaceful location overlooking the delightful beach and bay of Kamari.

The resort is located on the south west coast of Kos and takes about an hour to reach via airport transfer. There is a wide choice of various types of accommodation here, ensuring you’ll find somewhere just right to stay for your holidays in Kefalos. The long main beach is made from sand and shingle and offers a choice of water sports, whilst just along the coast there are some wonderful coves such as the ‘Chryssi Akti’ golden coast and ‘Bubble Beach’, which is accessible only by water taxi.

Volcanic Islands, ancient ruins and medieval castles

There is an excellent choice of food available in the resort, where you can eat anything from British favourites to traditional Greek cuisine. There is a selection of bars to head onto afterwards, however nightlife remains low key here in Kefalos. A wander around the old town of Kefalos is a must when you are here – it is set amidst windmills and ancient ruins and there are basilicas and a byzantine church just waiting to be explored.

Kefalos holidays can be enjoyed still further by visiting the nearby volcanic island of Nisyros, which has a monastery and a medieval castle making it a perfect daytrip destination. So if it’s a combination of exploration and relaxation you desire then visit the beautiful resort of Kefalos, but remember to book up early as this popular destination is highly sought after and generally becomes sold out in advance!

Places to Visit

Nisyros Island

– According to mythology, during the period of the Gigantomachy (war of the Giants) Poseidon (the god of the sea) plucked a rock from Kos and in anger threw it at the giant Polyvotis with the intention of killing him. This rock, which crushed the giant, became Nisyros.

Greek Nights

– In Greece there is nothing like a traditional Greek night when it comes to fun, be seated for a traditional Greek meal before being entertained by a bouzouki band and costumed dancers. A great way to learn traditional Greek dance!.
