Best beaches in Kos

Best beaches in Kos

With a total of 112 kilometres of coastline, you’ll find no shortage of stunning sandy beaches scattered across Kos.

  • You can expect great things from a beach named after Paradise! Situated on Kos’ southern tip, it features white sand, crystal clear waters and sunbeds to lounge on in the Mediterranean sunshine.
  • If you fancy bathing in waters which actually are as hot as a bath, Therma Beach is for you. Located on the south coast and only 20 minutes from Kos Town, the stunning beach is unique for its thermal springs.
  • The closest town to Paradise Beach, Kefalos also has a very picturesque beach of its own. Spacious enough to stretch out on the sand, it’s also lined with several cafes and snack bars.
  • Another golden sand beauty, Lambi Beach sits in Kos Town and is one of the most popular family beaches on the island. Packed with facilities, it’s perfect for a quick swim or a full-on beach day.
  • Agios Stefanos lies just north of Kefalos Beach and is a lot more laidback. It’s a great pick for water sports fans, plus you can even swim across to pretty Kastri island.
Quiet beaches in Kos

Quiet beaches in Kos

For those who aren’t fans of crowds, you’re in luck. Kos holidays provide ample opportunities to relax on deserted coves.

  • Kamari Beach is a small cove just a stone’s throw from Kefalos. Lapped by turquoise waters ideal for swimming in, it’s also home to several rustic tavernas just beyond the sand.
  • Tigaki Beach is one of Kos’ most relaxed resort areas and perfect for families thanks to its warm, shallow waters. Venture just west of the beach to the huge lagoon that’s home to migrating flamingos.
  • Limnionas is found well off the beaten track on Kos’ north coast. The tranquil beach has two gorgeous coves to choose from, one with a small quay for fishing boats and another overlooked by a quaint taverna.
  • Despite its name, there’s not usually any camels trekking down Camel Beach! Instead, you’ll discover a serene cove that’s never crowded and sublime for snorkelling.
  • Marmari Beach’s sheer size makes it a good pick for those who like lots of space to stretch out. Typically breezy conditions also makes it one of the best beaches for wind sports on Kos.
