Holidays in
Kos Town

A buzzing beach hotspot in Greece

Kos Town is a heady mix of everything you could want from a Greek island holiday. With its city centre beach, a rich and varied history, cool bars and restaurants, and great shops, Kos Town holidays really do have it all. On the eastern side of the island, Kos Town is a great destination for sightseers. The countryside and the town itself display ancient ruins, while an impressive 15th-century castle looks out over the sea.

As you explore the town and its cobbled streets, be sure to stop at its landmark plane tree – it stands in a historic spot where Hippocrates is said to have taught medicine to his students. There are beaches to discover, both in and out of town, and foodies will be happy, too – dozens of tavernas serve Greek classics, light bites and chilled Greek beer. For a feast for all the senses, look no further than holidays to Kos Town.

Your Kos Town questions, answered

It’s great – you can sip cocktails in a chilled-out beach bar at sunset, drink pints in an Irish pub or go clubbing until the early hours.

No, there’s so much on your doorstep here. If you want to explore the rest of the island plenty of buses depart from Kos Town.

Oh yes. Visit Zouroudi beach, spread out right in front of the medieval castle walls, or Psalidi beach, a quieter spot about a 20-minute walk away.
