Kavos (Greek: Κάβος) is the southernmost seaside village on the island of Corfu in Greece, in the municipal unit of Lefkimmi. Since the early post-war era, it has gained popularity as a resort heavily devoted to tourism and is popular with young (Club 18-30) holidaymakers from Britain, Germany, Serbia and Northern Europe.[citation needed]
