Kefalos or Tigaki

Trying to decide, looking for a beautiful sandy beach with some village life. Is Kefalos too quiet? Is Tigaki too crowded with tourists in summer? Are the mosquitoes bad in both areas? Which do you prefer?

Tigaki, where I ususally stay has a lovely beach, plenty of tavernas, a few bars and no nightclubs. Very friendly with a good mix of visitors and accommodation.

Kefalos is a bit quieter and a bit more spread out. I do not think the beach is as good as Tigaki, but it also has plenty of good tavernas and some bars.

Rather than either of these have a look at Mastihari which has more of a village feel. It also has a lovely beach, some very good tavernas, a few bars and a harbour where you could take the ferry to visit Kalymnos if you wish. Most of the accommodation are small family owned apartments, again a very friendly place. The link below will give you an idea of the place.

Both Tingaki and Kefalos are lovely. Tingaki is a much flatter resort which could be important if you have small children or mobility problems.

Never been to Tingaki, but heard it is busier than Kefalos which is quiet but still lovely. Im doing my 4th visit to Kefalos in September and cant wait, it really depends what you want out of a holiday. Enjoy whatever you choose.

Been going now to Tigaki for over 10 years so I would say 110% Tigaki. It's not too many people. You have to try it!

Come on folks! This is not a competition. The OP was asking some specific questions. If you prefer one area over the other, how about giving your reasons honestly.

To the OP - on the subject of mosquitoes. Generally speaking they can be a problem all over the island and Tigaki more so because of the salt lake nearby, mainly earlier in the year rather than later. If you take the usual precautions you should not have a problem.
