Kavos is located on the southern tip of the island of Kavos and is one of the liveliest areas of the Mediterranean. Quite fishing villages can be found in the area but the millions who flock to Kavos each summer mostly do so to experience the hundreds of bars, restaurants and night clubs on offer.
Although many holiday makers get to experience Kavos with little or no issues, there are unfortunately many cases of avoidable holiday illnesses reported.
Due to the variety of holiday options it presents, Kavos attracts visitors of all budgets. Although standards can vary widely across all resorts it is still unacceptable to be left out of pocket due to illness that could have been avoided. Poorly maintained swimming pools often lead to serious stomach illness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium.
Whilst staying in Kavos it is important to follow these guidelines to reduce the risk of food poisoning and other holiday illnesses:
- Avoid foods not prepared hygienically.
- Avoid food not stored at the correct temperature.
- Frequently use an alcohol-based hand gel.
- Wash hands before and after meal times and after using toilets and washrooms.
- Avoid salads and any uncooked fruits and vegetables (these may have been handled unhygienically)
