Your guide to Kos holidays
With so much on its doorstep, there are a plethora of things to do in Kos. Voukolies is one for the history lovers and offers a medieval fortified farmhouse, marble tower, and ancient windmill to explore. The Moslem Shrine Ntefterntar is a sight worth seeing as it offers an architectural alternative to the island’s ancient Christian artefacts. Or relax, go for a stroll and take in the beautiful features of picturesque Lambi Beach, backed by ancient ruins.
If you have an appreciation for nature, Mount Dikeo will take your breath away. With an altitude of 846m, it’s the highest mountain in Kos and every September there is an annual celebration honouring the mountain. The Carnival in Pyli, which is held every February, is also a stand-out occasion that will add a party feel to your holiday.
One of Kos’ main draws is its beautiful beaches. You definitely need to make time on your Kos holiday to hit the beaches, as they’re ideal for sunbathing and many of them fly the Blue Flag for their cleanliness and safe waters.
The sugar-white stretch at Mastichari will be difficult to tear yourself away from, while Aghios Stefanos Beach is for those who like to team a little bit of history with their relaxation. Pick a spot along the shore and kick back in the sun as you take in the surrounding sights. It’s also a great place to try some tasty seafood dishes as the evening makes way for a vibrant night life.
The modern beach resort of Psalidi is perfect if you are in need of some ‘me’ time. You can kick back and relax on the beautiful, tranquil beach with average temperatures of around 27°C throughout the summer - don’t forget your sun cream!
