With miles of golden beaches, warm Mediterranean sunshine and plenty of fresh, pine-scented air, Kos holidays are relaxing and rejuvenating – this is the birthplace of the ancient healer Hippocrates, after all. Located in the Dodecanese islands, in the southeastern Aegean region of Greece, Kos is a sun-drenched holiday destination with plenty to offer every traveller – it’s up to you to do as much or as little as you like.
Holidays to Kos are blissfully easy. From fun-filled resorts to boutique adults-only escapes, you’ll be met with warm Greek hospitality at every turn. Ancient ruins scatter the interior, meaning you never need to travel far to soak up history. Family-run tavernas can be found in the pretty main towns, but also in the island’s off-the-beaten-track villages, while water parks and windsurfing schools are always a hit with families – and big kids. Night owls will love the wide variety of nightlife, whether it’s non-stop dancing in one of the buzzing nightclubs or low-key drinks as the sun sets by the sea, while hikers will find peace, tranquility and unforgettable views in the Dikeos Mountains. Then there are the beaches – from deserted secret coves to expansive white-sand bays, you could spend weeks exploring them all.
