For nightlife and fun on Kos Island, you can always visit Psalidi. The resort is just outside Kos Town, and a short 8 km distance from Therma Beach in Agios Fokas.
Psalidi is popular with tourists for its lively nightlife and good beaches. Most of the clubs on Kos line up along the coastline here, together with restaurants, taverns, and cafes. The area to find them is known as “Bar Street,” and you don’t need to ask around to find it, as Psalidi is small and you only need to follow other groups of tourists to get there. There are several beach bars that are open during the day too so you can start to party as early as you like.

The beach of Psalidi is sandy and pebbled, with shallow waters safe for swimming. Many families with children prefer this area to sunbathe while their little ones play safely. While small children can paddle around close to the shore, teens and adults can take advantage of Psalidi Beach’s excellent windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions. Psalidi is also the place to go for all the gear you’ll need to windsurf or kiteboard the “Meltemi” – the strong northeasterly wind that blows offshore here. You will find a popular sports shop selling boards and sails, plus all the suntan oil you can carry. The shop also offers windsurfing and kiteboarding lessons for all ages.
