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.
Kos is the perfect Greek wedding island and here are the top reasons why many couples choose it to tie the knot and to spend a romantic honeymoon.

Although according to the calendar October is an autumn month, on Kos, is the last month of the summer. The average temperature highs stay around 22ºC in October, with more rain than September, yet the weather is pleasant enough especially for travelers who enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and other outdoor activities that are uncomfortable under the hot summer sun from June to August.
If you plan to vacation on Kos in September, the island is still welcoming and warm, as the bulk of the tourist crowds subsides.
