Like all Greek islands, Kos has a long history with traces still visible at every turn. Kos Town has the largest concentration of Greek ruins, signs of a civilization ages ahead of its time, with healers with a hedonistic and scientific approach to medicine as early as 500 BC.
Kos should be your next sailing vacation destination if you want good winds and views out of a travel magazine. Plus, you will discover the traditional Greek lifestyle, enjoying fresh fish and seafood, the sweetest watermelons in the world, and all kinds of yummy bites.
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 may be a small island, quaint and relaxed in winter, with abundant nightlife in high season. If you are not into clubbing, the island still has enough to keep you entertained. Outdoor events are usually organized every summer at various venues around the island according to the program of the annual Cultural Events of Summer Hippocrates festival.
Nerantzia, the Castle of the Knights of Saint John, is one of the Kos landmarks you cannot miss.
