Clubbing in Kos
Kardamena is a big hit with the young, up for a good time Brit beach and bar crowd. Head to the aptly named Bar Street to experience buzzing bars and clubs that range from the cool to the cheesy and proud of it! The capital, Kos Town, also boasts a vibrant nightlife that revolves around the harbour and the backstreets.
Get Away From It All
You can enjoy Kos without seeing so much as one strobe light! Classy Psalidi is small but perfectly formed, and very close to Kos Town if you decide you want to shake things up a bit. The former fishing village of Kefalos retains its traditional charm but now includes the modern area of Kamari, which gets lively at night.
Explore Brilliant Beaches
Agios Stefanos beach in Kefalos is a winner thanks to its clear calm seas, golden sands, cheap sunloungers and free canoes. It’s lined with tavernas and boasts some ancient ruins. Mastichari Beach near Kos Town and Kardamena Beach are also popular. In Kos you’re always near a good beach but be aware some are for naturists!
Discover Natural Wonders
Don’t let the beaches distract you from the treasures to be found inland. Take a boat trip from Kardamena to Nisyros, a tiny island with an active (but not erupting!) volcano that dominates the landscape. Plaka forest is a great place to escape from the fierce sun or, alternatively, try Kos Natural Park in the village of Zia.
