Greek Islands: Kos

Kos is a popular holiday destination island. With lovely beaches, archaeological sites, great hiking and timeless villages all around the island and the neighbouring Nissyros just across the bay, there is something for everyone. Bodrum in Turkey is easy to get to by ferry too, making Kos a very special island to visit.

Tigaki beach

Tigaki beach is definitely the best of the beaches on Kos. They have lovely sand and a lovely taberna.


Tagaki Hotel option

Kos Palace Hotel havs more than 100 rooms. Nice four stars place and not too expensive.


Mitsis Hotel

Norida Beach is lovely. What a great base for a Kos holiday. Our main tip is to go to Kos town early in the morning, jump on a ferry and you could be in Turkey for lunch.
