Kos has got it covered; the second largest island in the Dodecanese has a coastline that stretches over 290 kilometres.
With stretches of glistening sea and gorgeous white sand, a Kos holiday is perfect for both couples and families alike. One of the most popular is Paradise Beach, which is known amongst the locals as Bubble Beach. With white sands and clear waters, people of all ages will enjoy the famous air bubbles popping out from the shore which originate from the volcano at neighbouring Nisyros Island.
Away from the sun, sea and sand, you can explore the atmospheric lanes of Kos Town’s historic Old Quarter, picnic with peacocks in lovely Peacock Valley, enjoy a sunset horseback ride through the magnificent mountains, or visit the ancient Roman site of Asklepion and the birthplace of Hippocrates, father of medicine. Plus, for anyone looking for a spot of nightlife, look no further than Kardamena – the island’s hot spot and bursting with lively bars and clubs, as well as karaoke bars and English-style pubs.
Holidays in Kos are perfect for visitors dreaming of vibrant sandy beach resorts, where an enviable range of water sports awaits you. The resort facilities and sublime beaches also make this a popular venue for the perfect wedding or honeymoon. The island is also the ideal choice for those in search of a little piece of traditional Dodecanese life at a quieter pace, with lots of hidden coves and sleepy villages to explore amongst the stunning scenery. Then, you have the old town of Kos with its idyllic hilltop scenery, providing the perfect backdrop to make memories when on a Kos, Greek Islands holiday.
