Car Rentals Kefalos

Kefalos is a traditional village on the island's southwest side, 40 km away from Kos Town. It is one of the few villages that has managed to retain its authentic character. Kefalos used to be Kos capital until 366 B.C. Kefalos is split into two parts; one is perched on top of the hill near the Byzantine Castle of Kefalos and in the middle of the remains of ancient fortifications. In this part of Kefalos, you will admire the traditional Dodecanese island architecture with its winding cobblestone alleys, old windmill, and picturesque small houses.

The other part of Kefalos is situated on the seaside Kamari and it is also Kefalos marina. There you will find all modern tourist facilities such as hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, bars, supermarkets, car hire, and more. The quaint islet of Kastri is just opposite Kamari and creates a wonderful landscape with Agios Nikolaos church, the turquoise Aegean Sea, and a rocky pine tree backdrop. An interesting landmark near Kefalos is the White Stone Cave, situated on Mount Zini at an altitude of 258 meters. Its discovery shows that the island was inhabited from the late Neolithic Era. You can walk for about 20 minutes from the White Stone Cave to the Kefalos viewpoint. Enjoy the view and take some unique photos!

Some of the best landmarks in Kefalos is the Basilica of Agios Stefanos, located on the seaside Kamari. This early Christian Basilica dating back to 469 A.C., is one of the most well-preserved Basilicas in Kos, and you can still see the mosaics on the floor. The landscape of the Basilica’s remnants, the sandy beach of Agios Stefanos, and the rocky islet of Kastri will take your breath away.

In the summer, many cultural events take place in Kefalos. The most special ones are the Ouzo and Sardine Festival in August, but also the festivals of Agia Paraskevi on July 26th and Agios Ioannis on August 29th. The festival that takes place on August 15 in Panagia Stiloti is also great with traditional dance, music, and local food. If you’re in Kefalos those days and you want to experience Kos as a local, then a “panigiri”, a traditional Greek festival, is not-to-be-missed!
