The Kos summer is a fascinating time of the year, not only for tourists, but also for the locals, who get to enjoy a wealth of activities and events celebrating their culture, natural resources, folklore, and heritage.
When you visit Kos, you should try Koan foods to experience the authentic cuisine of the island. The local cuisine is primarily Greek and Mediterranean, counting on seasonal produce sourced locally. Fishing villages and seafront resorts serve fresh, catch-of-the-day fish and seafood, while, in the mountains, products derived from animal farming (goats, sheep, etc.) form the basis of the menu.
The Thor Star Wreck is a scuba diving site off the coast of Pserimos island. The Thor Star was a Syrian cargo ship built in 1965 and abandoned off the coast of Pserimos in 1997. It eventually sunk.
Kos in June is a thing of beauty. Nature regained its emerald green in spring and now rolls it all over the hills and valleys inland. The weather is mild and pleasant: it’s summer, but the heat of the season doesn’t set in until early July. This is the perfect weather to explore the island of Hippocrates.
