While the resort is relatively new, the old village of Kefalos still exists and is a beautiful area to visit at some point during your stay, with traditional Greek architecture to admire and a small village square. It is also home to the ruins of a mediaeval castle and the Monastery of Ayios Ioannis.

The beaches are the main tourist attraction of Kefalos and a big attraction for those on package holiday deals, due to the selection available to choose from.

Other than sunbathing there are plenty of attractions beside the beaches to ensure that everyone is entertained, such as windsurfing.
