According to legend, Hercules visited the Greek island of Kos – modern day travellers have followed in his footsteps, seeking the island's famous golden beaches and opportunities for island hopping.
The Greek island of Kos is situated in the Dodecanese archipelago in the south-eastern Aegean Sea. The south coast's golden beaches are amongst the best in Greece and the northern coast attracts fans of watersports to play in the calm protected waters. It is the third largest island in the chain, less frequented by tourists than the neighboring island of Rhodes, and is only 4 km from the coast of Turkey.
Kos is one of the most central islands in the Dodecanese chain and has good ferry and hydrofoil connections to Athens, Turkey and its neighbouring islands, also boasting its own airport. This makes Kos easy to reach, and means it is a popular destination for island-hoppers. Temperatures here are stable and warm, with average highs ranging from 18°C in the spring to 28°C in the summer and a comfortable 22°C in the autumn.For an easy trip further afield, catch a short ferry to Bodrum, Turkey in the ancient Anatolian region of Caria. Bodrum was home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, which has sadly been destroyed, but visit the spectacular Bodrum Castle and ancient Theatre of Halicarnassus for a taste of the area's past glories.
