If you’re looking for a Greek island escape, you’ll find that Kos is a tough one to beat for a winning combination of secluded retreats, active nights out, fine wines and great beaches.
Kos might be known for its quiet atmosphere that’s heavy on relaxation, but it’s still an island destination that has plenty to offer kids and families alike. Outside of its beaches is a patchwork of historical sites, endless scenic landscapes and just as many ways to explore them.
Famed for its abundance of sandy beaches along its sun-drenched coastline, Kos is brimming with action packed days out away from the golden sands.
The small island of Kos is home to a wealth of historical sights from ancient ruins to churches, cathedrals and castles. If you’re heading out for a day of exploring make sure you wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking and pack plenty of water and sun cream, as during the summer months temperatures can soar.
Kos might be pint-sized as far as islands go, but it’s by and large the liveliest of the Dodecanese family, at least where nightlife is concerned. Kardamena and Kos Town are its after-hours leaders, with a flush of bars and clubs to rival other Greek island biggies.
