Why go to Kos Town

Laid-back and romantic, Kos’ historic capital has all the charm expected of a Greek island. With gloriously sun-soaked summers, Kos Town holidays are all about lazy days on the beach, exploring the coastline by boat, or heading inland to quaint mountain villages.

Kos has some of the best beaches in the Dodecanese islands, and staying in the capital puts you close to several. If Lambi Beach is crowded in summer, hire a car and head over to the quieter Marmari Beach. Tigaki Beach is on the way too, with white sands and a family-friendly atmosphere. In the south, there’s Therma, a pebbly beach with hot thermal springs turned into a natural pool.

From Kos Town harbour, go snorkelling and diving, or head to Psalidi Beach for windsurfing or sailing. Hopping on a boat is a relaxing way to explore further afield too. Your choice of trips include visiting the small neighbouring islands, as well as the rest of Kos’ sandy shores.
