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 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.
