Book a hotel in Kos
Kos is one of the most popular islands in the Dodecanese. The island has a well-established tourist industry, which benefits visitors because the island is very organized. The locals are generally friendly people and they have realized just how important tourism is for the island. Kos offers plenty of action in the summer, but goes rather quite in the wintertime.
Kos has a large selection of wonderful beaches, which are mainly to be found on the south coast. The swimming possibilities are many and it is a great place for snorkelling or diving as the possibilities are endless. The island has some stunningly beautiful mountain villages that can easily be visited either by car, bus or bicycle. It is also home for some of the world’s most interesting ancient sites and they are worth a visit—many of the structures were built somewhere between 3rd–4th century BC. It is an absolutely amazing (more...) experience. Naturally, most of the activities on the island are based around the water, and Kos is a great place for windsurfing, jet-skiing or even sailing in your own yacht. There are several day-tripper boats which can take you to other nearby islands, as well as to Turkey if you wish.
