Kos Holidays – An established British favourite with great beaches
Holidays on Kos feature a long narrow island close to the coast of Turkey with 25 miles of fine beaches and a typically Greek hot sunny climate. Kos holidays are particularly popular with British holidaymakers looking for a package holiday to the Greek islands. Many Kos holidays are based in the two major Kos resorts of Kardamaena and Kos Town. Kos hotels are concentrated in beach resorts like Lambi and Psalidi on the popular east coast. Quieter Kos holidays are offered in the smaller resorts of the north coast. Kos holidays owe their popularity to plentiful sandy Kos beaches. Many Kos beaches offer exciting watersports and professional scuba diving courses.
Kos Holidays – Lively nightlife in Kardamena and Kos Town
Most Kos holidays offer an enjoyable mix of beach bars, Greek dancing, live music and discos. Kos holidays feature animated bars and tavernas serving Greek food and local wine alongside staple tourist favourites. Kos holidays are known for the lively clubbing scene. The liveliest Kos holiday nightlife is found at Kardamena, with Kos Town a close second. Kos holiday nightlife in resorts like Kefalos will more likely revolve around quieter waterfront tavernas. All Kos holidays should include a trip to Kos Town for its attractive old town, charming cafes and smarter, more cosmopolitan atmosphere. Away from Kos beaches, Kos holidays offer plenty of ancient remains and history, like the 14th century Castle of the Knights in Kos Town.
Kos Holidays – Day trips to Turkey
The humble bicycle has become a uniquely important part of holidays in Kos, with thousands of bikes for hire and plenty of cycle lanes and flat countryside. Holidays on Kos offer plenty of excursions through olive groves and mountains to visit hot springs and charming small villages like Lagoudi and Zia. Kos holidays could include boat trips to the neighbouring islands of Kalymnos, Patmos and unspoilt Nissyros. And to make your holidays in Kos truly memorable, there are popular day excursions to Turkey.
