Traditional Kos resorts
If you want to get away from the popular resorts and see something a bit more traditional Greek, why not try heading to the south west corner and visiting Kefalos, it’s a quaint village in the hills and a lovely place to spend the day. Zia is another popular traditional village, it’s up in the mountains and has several restaurants that are filled with people who come to enjoy the sunset views.
