Kefalos Beach

Beaches on Kos

Kefalos beach is very stony in parts and the water is freezing!
We found a lovely quiet section with just a few sunbeds and hardly any kids just down from the laundry and syrtaki restaurant.
The sweet old greek lady gives u cake evry day and an elastic band to tie your towel down with as when we went there were gale force winds like i,ve never known anywhere in greece! Dont know if this is the norm for kefalos but dont try to read a newspaper it will be straight in the sea!
Buy a mask and snorkel and feed the fish it,s great fun if you can stand the cold water.
Went to mastihari on the moped for a day lovely beach less windy and its slightly warmer.

Well what can I say! FANTASTIC! That was the best holiday we have ever had. The resort bay is beautiful with its tiny island sitting out in the sea. We spent many hours just drinking a beer or two! in one of the many bars & cafe lining the shore line and it just felt like paradise. We have come back home relaxed & that doesn't happen very often. The sea is so clean, people friendly, great food, watersports are cheap at Baywatch, and without a doubt we'll be back this september if we start saving! Don't miss the guys at Baywatch they're great fun.

Sorry but we've just come back from Kefalos and were very disappointed with the beach. There was rubbish every where, too many pebbles, no showers working and the worst was if you needed to go to the toilet you had to find a bar or restaurant that would unlock their toilet for you. This was not my kind of holiday with children.

Kefalos is a great beach with the most crystal clear water I have seen in my life, even better clarity than the Great Barrier Reef and Hawaii. Would definitely recommend this beach.

Although a mixture of sand and shingle it was very clean.Also great views of the nearby islands.Baywatch watersports is a must.Try the parascending.Excellent!!!!!

Lots of room to relax specially if you go towards where the fishing boats dock! No sand, mostly stones, though the water is lovely. Definately buy a snorkle to see the thousands of fish! Lovely swimming water. Great for water sports. Get a jet ski and go round Kastri Island- Lovely. Also get a pedelo and take a waterproof camera out, great photos!

Don't visited Kefalos if you want to see something. The beach might be good but don't expect to see much.

Kefalos is renowned for snorkelling so makes sure you buy a snorkel cos there are some wonderful fish to see.


The beach at Kefalos is OK but it is very stoney and also the stones that are in the water go out quite far so flip flops are a good idea.
