Another page of not knowing where to start and when to stop, as there is so much of local interest in this immediate area around Kefalos; a great deal more on the island generally and even more if you decide to take the odd trip to the neighbouring islands!
In the following pages is some information about places and attractions around Kefalos that could be of interest to you and may tempt you into making the effort to go and visit.
A regular bus service runs to the city of Kos if the thought of mixing a day of shopping and sightseeing appeals. From there the Asklepion is easily accessible so that is something that is doable without hiring your own transport.
With a car, scooter or buggy, every corner of the island opens up and you can enjoy the diverse mix that makes up this special place. From the ancient ruins that are to be found everywhere, dating from the days when Kos was wealthy and with a much larger population, to modern shops, clubs, cafes and waterpark. From the beaches to the beautiful traditional villages and superb tavernas in the mountains. From Wave Beach in the South West to the calm of the hot thermals on the South Eastern tip.
There is something for everyone in some corner of the island!
Turkey trips, Greek Night, Island Tour, Boat BBQ's and Nissyros are some of the excursions that you can book in the village.
Also, keep an eye open for the local life. Go and watch the fishermen bringing in their catch; see the sunflowers being grown for their seeds; be aware of quince bushes and fig trees, both of which may be made into the sticky, syrupy sweets. Look out for the small, domed wood burning ovens in which traditional bread is still baked. The agile goats scrambling about provide milk for cheese and yoghourt.
Don't miss going up to the old village itself to sit and drink coffee in the square - it provides endless entertainment!
The following pages will be added to and updated as time goes on so keep dipping in and you may well find something new.
