If the bigger, brasher resorts on the island of Kos seem too full of tourists and noise, then Kefalos could be the perfect destination. Perching on a hillside, overlooking the beautifully blue sea, this is a quieter location from which to enjoy the stunning Greek island. Holidaymakers book flights to Kefalos in search of some time for contemplation and relaxation among beautiful surroundings. The long beach is as attractive as any on the island, but much less busy than those at Kardamena. There is also a range of attractions in easy reach for days spent sightseeing, including the monastery of St Ioannis.
