Holidays in
Helona Beach

A serene, spectacular beach escape

Helona Beach holidays are all about relaxation. This sunkissed stretch of sand on the southeast corner of Kos is one of the island’s most peaceful beaches. It’s not as developed as some of the resorts on the island, and days can be spent enjoying the sea, relaxing in a bar or sipping cocktails at sunset. If you’re keen to pick up the pace, there’s more lively fun to be found just around the corner. Kardamena – one of Kos’s best nightlife spots – is a 20-minute drive away and it has an array of cocktail bars and clubs plus a wide range of restaurants and shops.

Families will also be very happy on holidays to Helona Beach, as the airport is just over a 15-minute drive away, meaning children can get settled into their routines quickly, while they’ll also love the proximity to the water park, with its numerous twisting slides and pools. And after enjoying the action, there’s the serene Helona Beach to return to.

Your Helona Beach questions, answered

Days on Helona Beach are about three things: snoozing, sunbathing and swimming. But if you want to explore further afield, the island of Kos is full of historic sites and quaint villages.

Night owls are just 20 minutes away from the cocktail bars and clubs of Kardamena, while families will enjoy the fun water park, which is also about a 20-minute drive away.

Helona Beach is a relaxing seaside destination, so you’ll want to enjoy it when the weather is warm. July and August are the hottest months, but spring and autumn are also lovely.
