Kavos is a bubbly beach resort located on the island of Corfu, Greece, popular with the 18-30 crowd for its late-night bars, golden beaches and lively booze cruises. While the thriving nightlife is undeniably the main attraction during Kavos holidays, there's plenty more to the island that makes it a top family holiday choice in Corfu, too. Towering white cliffs line the golden sandy beach and the turquoise sea is brimming with fun-loving watersports from banana rides to jet-skis and boat trips.
Most of the action takes place on the main strip, where you'll find a wealth of shops, restaurants, buzzing bars and clubs which come alive once the sun sets – if you're visiting on a party holiday with friends, head to Atlantis where the party spills out onto the beach and a bonfire flares until the sun rises. You'll find plenty of cheap hotels and apartments available during your holidays to Kavos, so you can choose to stay in the midst of the action or just outside of the resort's hustle and bustle.
If you're visiting with family, take a day trip to the island's calmer capital Corfu Town, just an hour's drive away, where you can wander the cobbled old town, admire the historic fortresses and shop for locally made ceramics and embroidered textures in the boutique shops and stalls. Or if you fancy a boat trip without the booze, sail across to the pretty island of Paxos where a 30-minute journey will whisk you off to quaint Grecian villages, lush olive groves and waterfront tavernas. With a host of fantastic eateries, a lively beach scene and enough day trips and activities to keep all ages entertained, holidays to Kavos make great-value Greek getaways.
