Kos

With over 290km of gorgeous coastline and year-round sunshine, beach fans will find a slice of paradise on Kos. Outside of its beaches and nightlife, Kos also contains its fair share of natural and man-made beauty with whitewashed houses, ancient ruins and quaint windmills spectacularly cascading down flower-filled verdant hillsides.

Kos offers a variety of resorts to suit all tastes. Party animals will love the vibrant beach bars, pubs and clubs of Kardamena whilst Kos Town provides excellent harbour-side dining options as well as its own lively nightlife. The newer resort of Kamari in Kefalos also provides a wealth of nocturnal attractions to keep visitors entertained whilst on Kos.

For those looking for a quieter Greek holiday, Psalidi offers peace and tranquility whilst Mount Dikeos contains pine forests and castles aplenty. There are also dozens of secluded bays and isolated coves to explore elsewhere on Kos if you want to get away from it all.
