Blessed by an ideal position on the Aegean Sea to offer visitors a long summer and the chance to stroll on the beach, and even go for a swim in the offseason, Kos has beaches that suit all tastes.
Visitors to Kos often speak of the curative experience the island on returning home. Famous as the birthplace of Hippocrates, who was the father of modern medicine, the island is also well known for its thermal springs like at Agios Fokas. Unbeknownst to most travelers arriving on the island, though, are the hundreds of medicinal herbs and plants native to Kos.
The Old Town of Kos is fascinating. This is where you will stumble upon legendary landmarks like the Tree of Hippocrates, Casa Romana, Platia Elefteria (Freedom Square) with the Agora and swanky cafes, Neratzia Castle, the Archaeological Museum of Kos, the Altar of Dionysus, and many other attractions.
The Executive Double Sea View Room with Private Jacuzzi is the newest type of room available when you want to vacation on Kos at Astir Odysseus Kos Resort & Spa.
PLAY Center Tigaki is a family-friendly destination not many travelers know about. Consider it a “locals know” kind of tip.
The Marmari Go-Kart Center is close to Tigaki, not far from the salt lake Alikes. It is a fun, family-friendly destination, with karts for all ages, and excellent racing conditions.
Tigaki is a quaint, peaceful holiday resort, famed for its pristine coastline with a 10-kilometer long beach and clear, shallow waters, perfect for swimmers but also suitable for all kinds of water sports.
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.
