Quick Guide to Kos
A Greek island lying close to the coast of Turkey, Kos is popular all year round, but holidays here are especially attractive in the summer months. The numerous long, sandy beaches and the great weather are Kos's main attractions, but don't forget about the busy nightlife in Kos Town, or Ancient Greek ruins such as the Askleipion and the Odeon.
The biggest resort in Kos is Kardamena - a beautiful beach with plenty of sun loungers and watersports available. It's also one of the biggest nightlife centres on the island, with lots of karaoke bars and cafes lining the main street drawing in a lively crowd.
Kos Town is another attractive holiday location. The Old Town is a narrow network of whitewashed tavernas and stores. You can dine at restaurants on the harbour, join the merry crowds in the "barstreets" of Nafklirou and Diakon, or explore ancient ruins such as the 15th century Knights' Castle.
