A town in two halves
Kefalos brings you a wonderful harbour with historic buildings, and beautiful gardens stretching up into the hillsides. From here you can enjoy spectacular views over the glittering blue waters of the sea, as well as a selection of excellent restaurants, hotels, bars, and shops. Visit the remains of the town’s castle during your stay and soak in the Roman history of Kos island or simply wander through the older streets which are lined with Venetian architecture housing boutique hotels and local homes.
The newer side of Kefalos offers an excellent range of restaurants and bars which have been built up around the thriving tourist trade of the town. The beach makes it an ideal choice for couples and families, with its photogenic golden sands well known to the island’s brochures. Spend the day ordering drinks and snacks to your lounger, swimming in the sea, or enjoying jet skiing trips, and exploring the coastline.
Holidays in Kefalos bring you the golden sands and crystal clear waters Kos is so well known for, with yachts and fishing boats ideal for those wanting to spend a day exploring. Ancient ruins are just waiting to be explored, while the pretty hillsides are ideal for hikers and mountain bikers wanting to take in some spectacular views.

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.
In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers.
The official language of Greece is Greek. English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
