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.
