Kavos Foam party

Amazing Events to book on your days off

With so much variety, where do you even begin?  The most famous party in Kavos is the Atlantis daytime foam party, so we say jump right in at the deep end.  With a free bar, live music and more foam than you could possibly imagine, this one definitely draws in the crowds – probably best to leave the phone at your apartment for this one!  Look out for full moon parties at this venue as well, channelling the buckets and easy-going attitude of the famous Thai parties, Atlantis fully embraces the atmosphere of an open air club.

What party resort would be complete without a booze cruise?  These regularly link up with on-shore resorts, so the party doesn’t end when the ship comes in.  You’ll visit private bays, take a dip in the Blue Lagoon and definitely won’t return sober.

Of course, there’s far more to Kavos than revelling.  Down at the beach you’ll be able to participate in various water-sports; speedboats, banana boats, you can even get catapulted into the air to clear your hangover.  Rather you than me though.  Once you’ve checked all that off your list – a daytime excursion to Paxos is only a 30 minute boat trip away.  A sleepy little place, wandering through it promises to soothe your soul.

Bars you can’t miss

A favourite with both locals and visitors is the Ice Bar, famed for it’s impressive cocktail menu and shisha.  Set slightly off the main strip, this is a great place to get you warmed up for a night of bar crawling shenanigans.

Future super-club.  White parties, foam parties, powder parties, paint parties and pool parties; these venues love a theme.  Perhaps that’s why they’ve collectively adopted the Vegas mantra – What Happens in Kavos Stays in Kavos…

Another favourite spot for those in the know is Bamboo Beach Club.  With a DJ rotation that focuses on house, deep house and electro, this venue gives off an Ibiza vibe.  Known for daily sunrise parties you’ll be able to get some decent snaps of the Kavos in full morning glory.  There’s a reason why this place draws in massive crowds, and the party goes on.  Watching the sun come up with your Summer Takeover fam when you’re more than a little tipsy are the sort of memories that’ll see you through a dull UK winter.
