Kos holidays 2020

Situated in the southeastern waters of the Aegean Sea, Kos is the third largest of Greece's Dodecanese islands and boasts no less than 290 kilometres of sandy shores and coves. 

With a landscape of whitewashed villages, five-star resorts and a warm, temperate climate, Kos holidays are one of the finest places in the world to relax and catch up on some hard-earned indulgences. 

From the sleepy resort of Kefalos, to the relaxed town of Tigaki, or the thriving party towns like Kardamena, a holiday to Kos offers a wealth of choice and variety.

Holidaymakers love Kos' great weather and beaches, but those are not the only reasons to visit the Greek island. Kos features amazing ancient ruins like the 14th-century fortress at the entrance of Kos' main harbour. There is also ancient Agora, which was a marketplace once considered as one of the world's largest. 

Kos is great for:

  • Beach holidays - Kos beaches are truly stunning, with turquoise warm waters and golden sands, they offer real relaxation. Some of the best beaches include Agios Fokas, Marmari and Psalidi.
  • All inclusive holidays - The Grecotel Kos Imperial Thalasso is a luxurious all inclusive option by the beach, while the LABRANDA Marine Aquapark Resort is a family friendly option that the kids will love!
  • Cheap holiday - Kos is one of the cheaper Greek islands so you can find some great last minute package holidays if you’re looking for a scorching summer getaway.

Top attractions

Top attractions

There's a wide range of attractions on Kos holidays.

One of Kos' less beaten paths is the hiking trails of Nisyros. The volcano is hydrothermally active and a day trip to the top showcases fumaroles, vents and bubbling mud. If you're looking for a slightly less intense adventure, you can simply wander the peaceful streets of Mandraki village. This hilltop town is free of motorised vehicles; making it safe and convenient to walk. One of the best things to do in Mandraki is to enjoy a coffee alfresco, while admiring the quiet serenity of this unassuming town.

Another great place to visit is Zia. This quiet area is popular with visitors, but as soon as the coaches leave, the village is yours to explore in peace. Visit one of the great Tavernas for a meal, stop by the market for some premium homemade leather goods or watch the sunset from the Dikaion Mountains.

Asklepieion is Kos' most significant archaeological site. The area dates back to the first half of the 3rd century BC. Visitors can see the ancient structure and witness just why Greece holds such an important place in ancient history.

Best beaches in Kos

The sun, sand and surf are three reasons tourists descend on Kos for their holidays; and all are reasons visitors never want to leave. Mastichari beach is a short drive from Kos Town and is a white sand paradise. Why not soak up the sun or even try your hand at jet skiing? Kefalos beach is another of Kos' most popular shores. The area's famous settlement surrounds the beach, and you can find plenty of Tavernas and cafes to dine in here too. While at Kefalos, the Monastery of Agios Nikolaos is a fantastic sight to see. Located just a short drive away, visitors often combine the two on a day out – making it a great way to mix relaxation and sightseeing in one.
