Kefalos is a purpose-built holiday resort with a laid-back atmosphere situated in the south west of the island of Kos. It is surrounded by spectacular scenery and sits beneath the old town of Kefalos, from which it takes its name. The resort has plenty of good restaurants and a couple of small nightclubs, but is mainly geared for tourists looking for a quiet holiday.

Resort Rating











The beach in Kefalos is a mix of sand and shingle and is ideal for lazy holidays in the sun. The sea is crystal clear and warm making it well suited for all the watersports that can be arranged here. Some of the best beaches in Kos are nearby including Paradise Beach. There are fascinating historical sites scattered around the island, particularly in the capital of Kos Town, 90 minutes away. So close that you can swim to it is the Agios Nikolas Monastery. Further afield, boat tours can be arranged to the spectacular volcanic island of Nisyros and to Rhodes (though be aware the journey takes almost three hours).


Kefalos boasts some of Kos's best restaurants with holidaymakers frequenting the Aussie Barbeque for mouth-watering steaks, Rainbow Taverna for authentic Greek hospitality and its famous barbecue chicken, Sebastian's, Captain John's, and Argo. Antonio's Taverna has earned itself quite a reputation as one of the finest eateries in Kefalos, situated on the beach behind Sacallis Inn Hotel.


Kefalos is not as well known for its nightlife as other Greek holiday resorts, but it is by no means at all boring. Popeye's Bar is excellent with friendly staff and is by far one of the most popular places to head for a pint or two. Players Lounge serves delicious quality cocktails with great music while Sydney Bar is the place to go for live music, where guests can enjoy a meal and sip on their favourite beverage while watching local artists perform on stage. There are also a number of tavernas that offer low-key entertainment.


Kefalos itself is dotted with the usual souvenir shops geared towards holidaymakers and grocery stores, but more seasoned shoppers usually find themselves heading to Kardamena or the very cosmopolitan Kos Town where there is a much larger variety of shops, markets and boutiques to choose from, and bargain hunters can buy anything from homemade jams and honeys to expensive hand crafted jewellery and trinkets.


The shingle beach in Kefalos can be very hard on your feet. Make sure you have good sandals for the beach and even swimming shoes.
