Absolutely adore Kefalos (possibly a retirement place for us), lovely beach and harbour, great restaurants, too many good ones to name, but very rarely disappointed. Always end the night with Yiannis & Manos at Marias bar on the harbour road and if you enjoy your football, they have at least five screens showing different games simultaneously - big bonus for me. Great atmosphere when major tournaments on.

The beach at Kefalos is a mix of sand and shingle and is within swimming distance of the Agios Nikolas monastery. The coastline leading to Kefalos has some of the best beaches on the island including Paradise Beach.

Kamari is only 1km away where visitors will find the basillicas of Agios Stefanos dating back to the 5th Century and also a pretty marina.
