Holidays to Kos, Greece

Overview

With a coastline spanning almost 300 km, Kos is the quintessential beach lover’s holiday paradise. From long sweeping bays to little-known pebble coves, everyone can find their perfect sun spot on this beautiful island. Even away from the coast, sprawling olive groves cover the inland terrain, interspersed with quaint whitewashed houses simply oozing the old-world charm that Greece is famous for.

Things to Do

Day excursions across to the Turkish mainland and island-hopping cruises to neighbouring Greek isles are popular attractions for tourists wanting to explore further afield. The tiny island of Nissyros in particular is a popular trip, with holidaymakers wanting to visit the still-active volcano! The resort of Kos Town is in itself a tourist attraction, with winding back streets hiding ancient historic ruins. Watersports are popular, as is biking over the flat terrain.

Food and Drink

With traditional Greek cuisine and Mediterranean influenced dishes offered alongside international cuisine, it is quite easy to be spoilt for choice in Kos. The hub of fine dining in Kos Town resides around the marina where you can find quaint tavernas serving up fresh seafood and delicious mezze boards. The local tipple is ouzo, an aniseed liqueur traditionally served in a small glass over ice and sipped slowly.
