In the evening the beaches become slightly quieter, seaside clubs playing Lounge and chill-out music and a little overwhelmed by the most romantic that remain on the beach until the morning.

The tourist development of Kavos

During the decades of 70 and 80 since culminated destinations such as Benitses, Dassia, and others, Kavos was just an almost deserted beach with only 2 traditional restaurants waiting desperately for a few visitors from the tourist cruising boats that made ​​a stop there for 1-2 hours mainly for lunch at noon.

Also, the road leading there was miserable, and narrow with many holes, and was a feat to get there.

But today roads have become highways and now are among the best roads on the island!!!

Slowly some accommodation started to be built in the area between Kavos and the Port of Lefkimi and some small bars next to two seaside restaurants.

Mid 80 things began to change, not in Kavos but in other destinations.

Especially in Benitses things changed radically in the 90s, residents reacted and kicked the club 18-30 and others such as the so-called 20s, tourist agents responsible for this kind of youthful mass tourism.

Kavos had the advantage that the residents did not stay permanently in the area but mainly in Lefkimi town, so the defusing desperate seeking by young British tourists could be done without disturbing the residents of the area, therefore these agencies directed all this mass tourism stream massively to Kavos.

The development of Kavos so got its way, the rest is easy to imagine.
