Kefalos is a lovely, traditional village built on the hill in the south west of Kos and sprawling out over the surrounding areas and down to the beach. Kefalos is roughly 15km from the airport and 40km from Kos Town.
In Kefalos you’ll find the folklore museum as well as many restaurants, some of which offer gorgeous views out over the south west of the island. Also in the village are a couple of supermarkets and other shops.
The village has no shortage of hotels to suit any budget and all tourist facilities too including ATMS, vehicle hire shops and loads of restaurants. The evenings in Kefalos people tend to head down to the harbour area on the south coast where there’s lots of beach front bars and restaurants. It’s possible to find Karaoke if that’s your thing, live music bars and Greek nights too. There’s even a small club for those that like to stay out a little later.
Kefalos is not far from the Basilicas of Saint Stephen and the white stone caves. There’s also a number of beaches in the area, Limnionas beach on the north coast and also the south coast beaches which are widely considered some of the best on the island like Paradise Beach or Agios Stefanos beach.
