Get a splash of sun when you book cheap Kos flights. This Greek island is kissed by warm rays between spring and autumn, though sun, sea and sand are only three of the charms of Kos.

You've also got lively nightlife, wonderful restaurants, magnificent scenery and a heap of family attractions...


Kos, one of the most popular Greek islands, offers a mix of great beaches, a vibrant atmosphere and fascinating local history and culture.

Visitors often choose Kos, the third largest of the Dodecanese island group, because it's slightly less busy than Rhodes but still has plenty to keep holidaymakers entertained. Flights to Kos arrive at Kos International Airport (KGS), also known as Hippocrates Airport.

Many flights to Kos are only available during the summer season. The island gets very busy during this period, with some of the main resort towns filling up with young holidaymakers looking for a party scene. If you are seeking a quieter vacation, visiting at the beginning or end of the season avoids the crowds but still takes advantage of the good weather.

Some of the main attractions in Kos are the beaches. There is a good mixture, from popular tourist areas to more secluded sandy coves. Bubble Beach is so named because of the tiny bubbles that froth up in the water around the shore. Paradise Beach and Exotic Beach are also popular. Boat trips for a day out to the nearby islands of Rhodes, Kalymnos and Patmos are also available.

History enthusiasts will also not be disappointed by Kos. It has been occupied since prehistoric times and featured in the Greek legend of Hercules. Arguably the island's most famous resident was Hippocrates, the father of medicine. His plane tree is now held up by scaffolding but is supposedly the oldest tree in Europe. There is also the Asklepion, the medical temple where Hippocrates was educated.

Other sites of interest include the Castle of the Knights of St John and the hot springs of Thermes Beach. Kos flights also offer the chance to see some of the island's smaller settlements, such as Pyli and those in Asfendiou.
