Why go to Kos

Whether it’s exploring historic sites or windsurfing in the Aegean Sea, there’s plenty to see and do on a Kos holiday. But the real beauty, perhaps, lies in not doing anything at all – the sun-drenched island is, after all, made for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Kos’ coastline is an obvious draw – its beaches range from long stretches of golden sand to shingle coves lapped by turquoise water. With plenty of parasols and sun loungers lining the shore, you could get away with just kicking back with an ice-cold beer or cocktail, a good book and a beautiful backdrop.

But if you’re after action, the Greek island boasts a wealth of activities, too; the island is famed for its excellent windsurfing and kitesurfing beaches, you can hire jet skis to zip across the water or take on the slides in a waterpark. Want to take it down a notch? Well, there’s always the option of a pedalo.

After dark, Kardamena is famous for its shoulder-to-shoulder bars and clubs. Capital, Kos Town, is also a great option for bar hopping. Evenings in Kos aren’t only about drinks and late nights though, and the island is perfect for foodies. Markets, souvlaki joints and family-run tavernas serving freshly caught fish and mezze dot the streets.

History lovers will also be in their element, especially in Kos Town. Highlights include the medieval castle, which gazes out over the Aegean, and the Ancient Agora, filled with crumbling temples. Elsewhere on the island, discover the ancient ruins of a religious sanctuary at the Asklepieion and little churches perched on beautiful islets.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
