The Beach at Kamari.

Technically, Kefalos is the traditional white-washed town you always see with its ancient windmills that sits on a hillside. But the name has come to be used for beachside Kamari too, essentially a self-contained purpose-built resort with a laid back atmosphere and a reasonable selection of bars, restaurants, discos.

Famous for its watersports, Kamari’s beach is a pleasant stretch of sand and shingle with good swimming. However, if you’re looking for more of a picture-postcard stretch of sand, the aptly named Paradise Beach just down the road will fit the bill.

The ‘old town’ of Kefalos is the place for sightseeing, though. There’s a lovely Byzantine church, built amidst the ruins of an ancient temple, the remains of an amphitheatre, as well as another temple, built during the Hellenistic period. And when you need a break, you can stop off for a coffee in a ‘kafenion’, and maybe have a game of backgammon with the locals.
If you really want to get away from it all, hire a bicycle or a car and travel the few miles north to Limnionas. This is the only north facing beach in the western part of Kos, and after a dip in the sea, there’s a taverna where you can tuck in to some delicious grilled mullet or swordfish.
Alternatively, take to the water for a boat trip to the volcanic island of Nissyros. A peaceful place, with a picturesque harbour, quaint villages and some beautiful landscapes, this is most definitely the life.
