Top attractions

While its popularity lies in the fact that it is a vibrant beach town, Kos is well known for its extensive history and there are numerous sites of interest for culture vultures. Explore the impressive Castle of Neratzia, a magnificent feat of architecture built by the Knights Templar. This building dominates the harbour front, making it difficult to miss if you plan to linger over a drink or peruse the coast.

Nearby, you’ll uncover the plane tree, a town landmark and not dissimilar to the one Hippocrates used to teach under – ideal if you want to give the kids a lesson outside the classroom. Meanwhile, the surrounding area is home to a range of Roman ruins to stumble upon. Take a trip west to embrace your inner Indiana Jones and discover the remains of the Asklepion; an ancient Greek sanatorium.

If you’re an art fan, a short walk from the harbour will reveal you to Casa Romana, one of Kos Town’s top attractions. This restored Roman mansion is breath-taking in itself – if only for its stunning architecture and extensive grounds. Take a look inside and you’ll be greeted with a wealth of great artwork, from mosaics and frescoes to glorious statues. There are 36 rooms in total to view, so make sure you get in early.

If its sea and sand you’re looking for, you’re in the right place. Zouroudi Beach is a welcome mix of sun-splashed sand and pebbly landscapes, making it a popular place for tourists and locals alike. It also happens to be in front of the castle’s medieval walls, giving an edge of historic style to this popular beachfront. Take a stroll along the coast, or lounge around on a sunbed to top up your tan – you can easily spend all day in this part of Kos Town.

If you’d rather something with a little more atmosphere on your holidays in Kos Town, head to the second bigger beach just opposite the harbour. There are water sports and activities to be had here, as well as numerous cafés and restaurants dotted around the place. Those embarking on a romantic retreat might crave a little more solitude, in that case, a walk to the shingle-clad shores of Psalidi is just the ticket.
