Kefalos, Kos

Kefalos, a Greek resort, is situated at the southwest side of the island of Kos, 43 km from Kos Town.

It is built on a stone height, dominated by the imposing windmill of Papavasilis and is home to 2097 inhabitants.


The resort of Kefalos is purpose-built and is surrounded by vast scenery and sits beneath the old town of Kefalos, from which it takes its name.

The resort has plenty of restaurants and a couple of small nightclubs, but is mainly geared for tourists looking for a quiet holiday


Kefalos itself has some souvenir shops and grocery stores, but serious shoppers will have to head to Kardamena or Kos town to find a wide variety of goods.
