Discover

The Island of Kos

Kos is one of the most popular destinations in Greece. It is located on the southeastern side of the Aegean Sea; it is the third biggest island of the Dodecanese complex and the second most popular destination after Rhodes. This is a place with tourist and secluded spots, crystal clear waters, sightseeing, intense nightlife, traditional villages, and delicious food. As Kos receives many charter flights from abroad, many places around the island are getting busy in high season. However, there are also places away from crowds that maintain a relaxing atmosphere.

Beaches in Kos vary from organized coasts with luxurious hotels and water sport centers to secluded beaches.

There are cultural events organized every year during the months of July, August and September. These events include concerts, theatrical shows, ancient tragedies, art exhibitions, sailing races and of course the recitation of Hippocrates’ oath in the archaeological site of Asklipion.
