Kamares or Kamari is a small and fairly attractive harbor on the south end of the island. It offers good shelter from the meltemi. You can go to the quay side-to, if there is room, or stern to. Alternatively you can anchor north of the quay in 5 m. It does get deep very fast. There are a few taverns and several large hotels within sight. It can get rather noisy at night.
The Folklore Museum is 40 km away from the town of Kos, in Kefalos village. It displays a big collection of agricultural tools and objects used throughout the centuries as well asa lot of traditional artifacts such as embroideries, intricate and stunning woven tapestries and silks.
The road west out of Pothia leads to the village of Vothini then down to the inlet at Vlychadia where there are two pleasant bays each side of the small harbour, one a gentle curve of shaded sand the other a small strip of clean pebbles. Good taverns back both beaches and regular excursion leave Vlychadia for the cave at Kefala just along the coast south-west of Vylchadia.
