Tigaki is your destination when you stay at Astir Odysseus Kos Resort & Spa. It is a quaint resort, known for its pristine Blue Flag beaches, including our own, which has been recognized by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) for water quality, environmental education, and management, safety and accessibility.
The Kos Ecclesiastical Museum is housed inside the Old Metropolitan Church of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of the Holy Metropolis Kos-Nisyros and is one of the spiritual landmarks of the island.
Although Astir Odysseus Kos Resort & Spa in Tigaki closes for the winter, the island is still interesting for visitors who want to experience it “like a local.”
According to Greek legends, the island was named by the Titan Kinnos, who sought sanctuary here with his brothers Phoebus and Koios.
Paralia Tigkaki (Παραλία Τιγκάκι) translated into English as Tigaki Beach, is a sandy stretch over ten km along the northern coast of the island, some 11 km to the west of the town of Kos.
Kos is one of the best-known Greek islands. As the birthplace of Hippocrates, Kos attracts many tourists who want to retrace the steps of the man who is celebrated as the “father of medicine.” But besides attractions that celebrate his name and legacy, the island offers much more for people who enjoy nature, history, culture, and gastronomy.
With 10 kilometers of white, sandy Blue Flag beaches dipping gently into shallow waters, Tigaki is the right destination to find yourself relaxed and at peace in no time.
