Floating off the southeast coast of Greece, Kos is a seriously charming destination. Brimming with sun-kissed beaches, lush forests, quaint villages, ancient temples, medieval castles, cafes, bars, and restaurants, Kos holidays are simply captivating.
Things to Do in Kos
- Explore the island’s historic sites. Be sure to visit the Ancient Agora, the Asklepion, Hippocrates Plane Tree, and the Temple of Hercules.
- Sip a drink while sunbathing on one of the island’s many beautiful beaches. Simply pick a spot on the stretch of sun-soaked sands and relax.
- Head into the Plaka Forest. An emerald pine-scented forest homing dozens of peacocks and colonies of cats – don’t worry they get along! – Plaka Forest looks like it’s straight from a fairy tale.
- For authentic Greece, take a daytrip to Nissyros. A small volcanic island neighbouring Kos, Nissyros is offers great hiking trails and charming restaurants.
