Many of the most unforgettable sights to experience on a Kos holiday can be found in Kefalos, a resort where the ancient remains combine with much more modern pursuits to give you a break which brings these two disparate attractions together beautifully.
Apart from some of its ruins, the town's trademark is its many ancient windmills dotting the hillside.
Kefalos is essentially two resorts in one - there's the tiny, quieter older area, and the modern, purpose-built complex of Kamari, which caters for those looking for a more lively, contemporary style of holiday.
The modern development is the base for most of the visitors who take a Kefalos package holiday or all-last minute holiday, and it includes a good compliment of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
The best beach in the area is in Kamari. Its mix of sand and shingle and quiet waters make it a good swimming location. Just down the road, Paradise Beach earned its name with good reason, and this is a more archetypal stretch of sandy beach, also with calm waters.
Local seafood takes pride of place among the offerings in local restaurants, as you would expect, and the old town of Kefalos boasts plenty of places where you can enjoy some locally-caught swordfish or mullet. Transfers from Kos airport, about 15 miles away, are straightforward and from the moment you arrive, you'll sense that you're in for a real holiday treat.
