Kefalas, Apokoronas Chania
Situated to the northeast of Vamos, Kefalas is a wonderful traditional village with a rich preservation of local architecture and impressive old village churches. It owes its name to the first residents there, called Kephalades, the leaders of the Byzantine settlers sent to Crete in 1182 by Alexios Komninos. The village has two traditional Kafenions, serving coffee, drinks and meze. There is a taverna serving Cretan food, and two mini markets. A van arrives daily at the village square selling fresh fish, vegetables and fresh bread. The larger town of Vamos ( 5km away) has a larger selection of eating places and shops.
Close to Kefalas (approx 10 mins drive) is a small quiet bay, Obrosgialos bay, with a fish taverna, perfect for swimming in the crystal clear waters.
This area is perfect for those wanting to enjoy Cretan filoxenia and culture in a beautiful village, and those who enjoy walking, cycling and sight seeing. The historic city of Chania is about 30 mins drive away.
