Just 10km from Kos Town is the haven of Tingaki, where Greek tavernas and laid back bars border a long white sand beach. Many visitors choose to spend their whole holiday on the beach and it’s easy to see why – the views from the beach of glittering blue sea and the distant coast of Turkey are hard to resist. If you do manage to pull yourself away, there’s a water park and Kos Town nearby to visit.
Tingaki is located on a long sweeping bay, and has a gorgeous stretch of beach. It’s well known as one of Kos’ best and holidaymakers travel from all over the island to visit. Sunbeds and parasols are available to rent, and the shallow water close to shore attracts families looking for safe paddling territory for their kids. It’s also a popular spot for water sports, particularly kite surfing due to the coastal breeze.
Things to Do
If you can tear yourself away from the beach, there’s plenty to keep yourself busy on a Tingaki holiday. Kos Town is just 20 minutes away by bus and the service runs regularly, particularly during peak season. Here you can see Kos’ most famous landmark, the Castle of the Knights, go shopping, or have a night out. It’s also just a short trip to the Lido Water Park near Mastichari.
Food and Drink
Most of Tingaki’s restaurants are family-owned Greek tavernas, offering up local fare such as moussaka, lamb kleftiko and fresh seafood. While parties rage in nearby Kos Town, Tingaki prefers to take the evenings at a more leisurely pace – instead of clubs the resort has relaxed pubs and bars mostly located on one main street near the seafront. Many people stay on an all inclusive basis, so there are often entertainment nights in the hotels.
