A scenic place to relax

Right next door to Kos's cosmopolitan capital is the sleepy resort of Psalidi. This laid-back place is surrounded by a gorgeous green back drop and sweeping hills. It's an ideal destination for cheap holidays to Kos as it's tucked away from the hustle and bustle of busy tourist trap areas.. Psalidi is a blink-and-you-miss-it sort of town, but for holidaymakers looking for a week of serenity and peace, it'll be their own little slice of heaven.

Golden sand and pebbles

Psalidi's V-shaped beach is made up of a pleasant stretch of sand and pebbles. It's not as long as some of its neighbouring beaches, but this area is rarely crowded and there are plenty of spots for you to unwind under the Grecian sun.

Because of its interesting V-shape layout the water lapping up onto the beach is shallow and great for children to take a dip in. If you look out across the Aegean Sea you'll see in the distance some of the other small Greek islands.

Promenade shopping and good eats

Psalidi's long promenade is where all the action takes place. Located across from the seaside, here you can do some shopping as well as grab a bite to eat and drink. This promenade is full of little gift shops selling souvenir trinkets as well as those beach essentials. There are also a few little supermarkets where you'll be able to find an array of snacks and groceries.

Most of the restaurants, bakeries and cafes are located on the promenade's waterfront and these eateries offer up traditional Greek food on their open air dining areas. Popular Greek dishes here include an array of fresh seafood like calamari, octopus and squid. In the evenings some tavernas have live entertainment consisting of a variety of acts like Greek dancing, guitar playing and plate smashing.

Quiet drinks under the stars

Psalidi at night just as relaxed as you'd expect a sleepy town to be, you'll find quiet bars inside your resort and traditional tavernas that serve drinks on their outdoor patios, some open late into the evening.

For a more wild nightlife scene you can head to the capital city, Kos Town, just minutes away, where there is a wide selection of bars and clubs and happy hour spots along its stunning beachfront venues.

Natural beauty

One of the best ways to really explore the area of Psalidi is by renting a mountain bike from one of the cycle shops in town. You can either join as part of a biking tour group or go it alone. Journeys can take you through the magnificent grassy and rocky landscapes or simply along the town's beach promenade.

Nearby neighbours

The perfect base from which to explore more on Kos holidays, Kos Town is just a stone's throw away from Psalidi. Buses run daily, or if you fancy a wander, you can walk to this historic town following the coastline in 25 minutes on foot. Kos Town is known for its incredible beaches and harbour that's lined with clubs shops and restaurants. There's tons to see and do here including the city's main tourist sight, the 15th-century castle that sits on the hillside.

Another great day trip out is to the nearby area of Therma, or as it's also called, Bubble Beach. A 20-minute bus trip away, the therapeutic hot springs and natural pools are perfect for doing some bathing in, and will give you an experience like none other.
