Beautiful Kos is one of the larger of the Greek islands and perfect for those wanting to escape to the sun. Kos is a highly popular tourism destination due to its wonderful resorts and beaches but rest assured if you prefer to break away from the crowds, there are plenty of spectacular hidden treasures and secluded spots just waiting to be uncovered.
Kos, like many of the islands in the Aegean Sea is an ideal place to come to truly relax; spend the day lying on a beautiful golden beach before watching the sunset from a charming waterfront restaurant. There are fabulous resorts across the island with Marmari in the North offering great family friendly hotels, Greek taverns and 2 kilometres of pristine beach to enjoy. And if you are looking to continue the fun on into the night then the resort of Kardamena to the south has a vibrant nightlife with cocktail bars, pubs and clubs to keep you going until dawn.
For history head to the capital; Kos Town is a fantastic mix of old and new where you can be marvelling at the ancient ruins one minute before sipping cocktails along the marina or shopping in the modern designer boutiques the next. Be transported back in time almost 2000 years as you explore Casa Romana, a beautiful Roman mansion. Not far from the city you will find the Asklepieion, the most impressive of all of the island’s historical sites.
With cycling being so popular on the island, explore this incredible island at your own pace or why not hike up to the top of Mount Dikeos to enjoy phenomenal views across the island and beyond. Many tourists also choose to explore a little further afield and take a day trip to one of the neighbouring Greek Islands or to nearby Bodrum in Turkey.
