Kos

Wrapped in by some of the most glorious stretches of sand in the Dodecanese, the island of Kos is a paradise on earth packed with crystal-clear waters, fertile valleys, gorgeous cities and jaw dropping sights. With its stunning harbours, ancient ruins and vibrant nightlife, a more idyllic destination for a luxury Greek holiday is hard to imagine.
 
Do you want to see some modern remains of ancient Greece? All you have to do is look around here! Everywhere you go there are millennia-old Corinthian columns sprouting from the grass like trees and half-vanished structures are so common-place that locals have become blasé about them. Around each corner there’s another historic site to be discovered, so history buffs and snap-happy visitors will have plenty of opportunities for enjoyment.
 
Of course, Kos has updated itself since the time of Hippocrates (its most famous ancient Greek) and is now better known for is paradisiacal beaches and lively nightlife. Sun worshippers had better get packing as there are miles of golden stretches for you to place your towel on from Kardamena and Kamari on the southern coasts to Mastihari on the north side. From rugged shores surrounded by cliffs and wildflowers to picture-perfect cerulean waves on white sands, there’s a beach for every water baby.
 
Party goers will be equally impressed by what’s on offer with a plethora of bars, pubs and beach clubs among other nightlife amenities. So whether you want to dance beneath the stars after a day spent in the water, or sip on something Greek in a local hotspot, you’re bound to find the venue to fit your needs.
 
If you consider yourself a bit of a foodie then look no further for your next getaway destination than this little island which packs a big punch of flavour. There’s a huge range of restaurants, street food stalls and markets to be found here both on the beaches and in the town itself. Ranging from fine-dining to local specialities such as the wine soaked cheese known as "Red Cheese".
 
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
Fancy a day trip? The island of Kos is particularly popular for its close connections to the rest of the Dodecanese as well as Mykonos, Paros, Lesvos, Samos, Chios, Tinos and Athens via ferries and catamarans.

Kos In A Nutshell

After Dark Destinations 
 
  • If you’re looking for a place to party then call off the search because you’ve found it! Kos is reputed for being one of Greece’s top destinations for some fun-filled night out on the town.
     
  • If you’re looking for traditional bars and clubs, the well-known streets of Nafklirou and Diakonou in Kos town are the place to head. Here you can experience a bit of the local interpretation of fun as well as a more familiar revel scene.
     
  • For something a little different, why not steer your feet along the shores leading to Lambi, where you’ll find beach bars, clubs and parties galore with venues such as Kavo Paradiso, Baltic Beach Bar and Beach Bar King Size.


    Adventure Awaits 
     
  • With waters as clear as those of Kos, it would be a sin not to try your hand at some watersports during your stay. Scuba diving, snorkelling, jet skiing and loads more activities are available at almost every beach so you can turn a lazy seaside trip into an adrenaline-fuelled adventure.
      
  • Although Kos has everything you need and more, you might want to take advantage of the easy access to Rhodes, Nissyros and Pserimos and plan an adventurous day trip. A particularly fun way to travel between these neighbouring regions is by speedboat or yacht.
     
  • Want to see more of that gorgeous Kos countryside? Then book yourself onto a horse trail tour where you’ll be able to travel far and wide astride some of Greece’s most renowned equestrian steeds.  


    Life’s a Beach 
     
  • By far the best beach for every style of traveller whether you have kids in tow, are planning a solo boat trip or even want to enjoy a quiet get together with friends, Paradise Beach (otherwise known as Bubble Beach) is long, sandy and stunning. There are plenty of sun beds for adults, watersports for kids and eateries for the hungry.
     
  • For surfing enthusiasts who are searching for the perfect wave conditions, we recommend Kardamena and Kefalos as the best waters for riding the tides. Equally popular with otherwater sport lovers are the beaches of Tagaki, Mastihari and Lambi.
     
  • Want to get away from it all and enjoy a bit more isolation in your seaside getaway? The sandy stretches on the west side of the island come commended as being peaceful and stunning but without the amenities of the more popular haunts.
