Agios Stefanos. Agios Stefanos is a beautiful sandy beach on the south coast of the Greek island of Kos. This beach is in the bay of Kefalos, about 36 kilometers(22 miles) southwest of Kos town. It is a special beach because it lies next to the ruins of the 5th-century Agios Stefanos basilica. Exactly opposite of Agios Stefanos is the island of Kastri on which a striking white church with the blue dome of Agios Nikolaos stands. The beach is well organized, and all kinds of water sports are possible here. On the beach there is a canteen where you can order snacks and drinks. The water is shallow at Agios Stefanos, you can almost walk into the sea and down the entire coast of the island. On both sides of the basilica of Agios Stefanos are beautiful beaches.
