Kefalos beach is a long and narrow beach on the south east coast of Kos
. It’s around a 45 minute drive from the islands capital Kos Town and just 15-20 minutes drive from the airport.
Kefalos beach runs from Kamari beach
in the south to Agios Stefanos beach
in the north. It’s mainly sandy under foot with some shingle in places. Because it’s the main beach for the village of Kefalos
it does get fairly busy but due to it’s length it doesn’t really feel crowded. The beach isn’t covered in sun loungers like some of the more tourist heavy ones are so you can easily turn up with a towel, a good book and some refreshments and it wont cost a penny.
If however, you want to stay for lunch or get an ice cold drink then you can pop in to one of the many tavernas that you’ll find along this stretch of the Kos coast line.
There’s water sports available to keep the adrenaline junkies busy and pedalo hire for those that want to explore the coast at a more gentle pace. Getting to Kefalos beach is simple as it’s right on the main road that runs the length of the island, simply head south, follow the signs for Kefalos and you can’t miss it. Once there you’ll find ample roadside parking at the back of the beach as well as a couple of designated parking areas too.
If you’re heading to Kefalos beach then why not take a look round Kefalos as well, It’s an attractive village with plenty of lovely restaurants as well as some gorgeous views, particularly if you head up the mountains.
