About Kavos

Kavos is one of the original and best clubbing holiday destinations. Before thousands of 18-30 year olds began taking over the island, it was a quiet fishing town and still retains some its charm and character from its previous life.  The whole resort is all about 4 things; sun, sea, clubs and beaches. The main strip starts to get lively from early evening and is crazy right through until breakfast the next day, 7 days a week. When the lads and girls are not partying hard, they are on the beach soaking up the sun. In between, you can get a few hours’ sleep in your hotel (or not if you’re in someone else’s …) and get your head cleared up for the next night crazy session!

To help ensure you have a trouble free holiday experience check out the following information in our essential travel advice guide:

When to go to Kavos

The best time to visit Kavos is between the peak months of June and September, as the Greek sun attracts party goers from all around the world and in their thousands to southern Corfu. During this time the resort is at its hottest months, and not just weather wise. If you plan your holiday for the middle of this period, flights and accommodation prices will be a little bit pricier. To save some money, consider travelling at the beginning or end of the peak season, just expect there to be slightly fewer of you in the resort to get your boogie on with! Either way, you can guarantee that your 18-30 holiday in Kavos is going to be superb.

Kavos Weather

If you want to escape the rain and be bathed in sunshine, you have definitely come to the right place. With around twelve hours of scorching sun a day, you can definitely forget about reaching for the St. Tropez spray tan when you get back. Kavos will deliver you home sun kissed, bronzed and looking a million dollars. June to August are the hottest months, with temperatures remaining above the 30s, whilst April, May, September and October are a little cooler, although still hot in comparison to our drab English weather!

Health and Safety

Before you head off, make sure you have adequate travel and medical insurance. Although it’s not a substitute for insurance, it is also a good idea to get yourself a free European Health Insurance card (EHIC) before you head out to Greece. Touch wood it will stay put in your wallet or purse, but it entitles you to any medical treatment should it be necessary during your trip so don’t forget it when you’re packing! It is worth noting that the EHIC will not cover you if you require ongoing medical treatment, so if you take medication long term, be sure to bring enough with you in case there are any unforeseen delays to your flight home.

Passports and Visas

You don’t need a visa to travel to Greece, but you will need a valid British or European passport. Make sure that your passport is valid before you leave, and will remain valid for the duration of your stay plus 6 months. If your holiday ends, but you are not ready to return home, you are permitted to stay in Greece for up to three months. Any longer and you would have to apply for a residence permit.

Healthcare and Walk in Centres

There is no shortage of medical centres in Kavos, so in the unfortunate event of needing to visit one, you’ll be well looked after. Medical centres are located throughout the strip and are experts in aiding us tourists 24/7.  In case of emergency, dial the European emergency services number 112.

Police and Security

Should you need to speak to the police, there is a police station just seven miles from the Kavos resort. The number for the police force is 26620-22222. In the case of an emergency, dial 112 for the emergency services.  If you are worried about any security issues at your hotel, speak with the reception staff who may have lockers in place to keep your valuables safe. Some hotels also have their own security staff, so make sure you check before you go.

ATMs and Currency

There is no need to bring all your spending money in cash (in Pounds or Euros) as there are a number of other ways you can pay and protect your money. You will find a number of ATMs in Kavos, but before you use them, be sure to check with your bank how much they will charge you to withdraw. You will also need to notify your bank that you are going to using your debit/credit card abroad – simply give them a call to do this before you depart. A large number of clubs, bars and restaurants allow you to pay by card, but not all, so be sure to have a combination of cash and card.  You can also use prepaid currency cards when you stay, which allow you to top up an amount before you leave, and budget your spending.
