With its whitewashed villages, trademark windmills and lively nightlife scene, Kos is second only to Rhodes in popularity in the Dodecanese Islands. It may be closer to Turkey than Greece's mainland but its feel and flavour is unmistakably Greek. Holidays in Kos offer miles of gorgeous, sandy coastline, meaning the hardest choice will be which one to relax on!

 

A hotspot famous for attracting the party crowds is the island's capital of Kos Town, popular for its fabulous cocktails and fun-packed harbour. The temperature drops a little in May, so if you visit during this time you can expect the sea to be cold and the air cool, at least on certain days. June to mid-September is the best time to visit Kos thanks to its buzzing beach life, great if you're after sunbathing holidays (with slightly chilly evenings). This sun-soaked Greek island is a hub of happy hedonism, but don't miss the chance to explore its delights by day. Kos has a nightlife of its own style and it’s centred more or less around two streets – Diakon and Nafklirou. It's in these streets where you'll find a handful of exquisite bars and nightclubs.

 

Kos receives its travellers at an inland airport named after itself. As well as blissful beaches and coves to discover, Kos holidays are perfect if you fancy hiring a bike and exploring its many ruins scattered among the wildflowers, flora and fauna.

Join the Party People

 

 

Join the Party People

Kardamena is a big hit with the young, fun, beach and bar crowd. Head to the aptly named Bar Street to experience buzzing bars and clubs that range from cool to cheesy! The capital, Kos Town, also boasts vibrant nightlife and a bar scene that revolves around the harbour and backstreets.

Lose the Crowds

 

Lose the Crowds

You can enjoy Kos without seeing so much as one strobe light! The former fishing village of Kefalos retains its traditional charm but now includes the modern area of Kamari, which gets lively at night. Up the hill, the pretty old town should not be missed. Classy Psalidi is small but perfectly formed, and very close to Kos Town if you want to head into the centre for a nightcap.

 
Explore Brilliant Beaches

 

Explore Brilliant Beaches

Agios Stefanos Beach in Kefalos is a crowdpleaser thanks to its clear calm seas, golden sands, cheap sun loungers and free canoes. It is lined with welcoming tavernas and boasts fascinating 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

 

Discover Natural Wonders

Don’t let the beaches distract you from the treasures to be found inland. Plaka forest is a great place to escape from the sun or, alternatively, try Kos Natural Park in the village of Zia. For a change of pace, enjoy a boat trip from Kardamena to Nisyros, a tiny island with an active (but not erupting!) volcano, which dominates the landscape.

 
Sunset Mountain Walks

 

Sunset Mountain Walks

Why not take a walk to the top of Mount Dikeos, the highest mountain on Kos, and enjoy panoramic views across the Aegean Sea. The idyllic village of Zia is surrounded by forested hillsides and welcomes visitors with its many tavernas, shops and churches. It is beautiful at sunset and you can view the entire island from here.

 
See the Tree of Hippocrates

 

See the Tree of Hippocrates

Hippocrates is said to have taught students under this tree. A historic landmark, the 500-year-old Plane Tree of Hippocrates is said to have descended from the original that stood at this spot in the 5th century. Located in the centre of town at the Castle of Knights, below the Gazi Hassan Mosque, its cuttings have travelled around the world.

 
Roam an Amphitheatre

 

Roam an Amphitheatre

Explore a Roman amphitheatre at the Ancient Roman Odeon which was only discovered in the early 20th century. A short drive from Kos lies the Asklepieion, an ancient medical centre built in the 3rd century BC to Asklepios, the God of Health and Medicine. Probably the major ancient attraction in Kos, see the ruins of Roman thermal baths, altars and even an ancient 'spa'.

 
Picnic at Plaka Forest

 

 

Picnic at Plaka Forest

A short drive from the airport, hundreds of peacocks and tortoises roam freely in the Plaka Forest. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy life in this peaceful forest. Great for families with kids or couples, and dotted with benches and barbecue pits.
