Welcome to Kos, the island of Hippocrates, the father of Medicine
Discover on Kos: the hot springs, the wetlands of Psalidi, the basilica of St. Stephen’s and the contrasting Town Minaret.
Visit the Asklepeion, ancient Medicune-Temple, the Venetian Castle of the Knights of St. John, the plane tree of Hippocrates and the kilometers long Paradise, Camel, Tigaki, and Marmari beaches. Don't forget to try out the taste of Kos, the exquisite traditional confections and the marvelous local wines or the roast red peppers stuffed with Feta cheese and the outstanding seafood fresh from the sea.
The island is an ideal proposal for any summer holiday in Greece. Kos delivers a variety of water sports (at every organized beach on the island) as well as a very lively night scene, including traditional bars and clubs, discos, live music and even traditional dancing.
From Kos you may also start interesting daytrips to Bodrum(Turkey) or to nearby island of Kalymnos, famous for its sponge divers; or a visit to the small island of Nissiros to explore the sleeping volcano. But you kann also take the time to explore the interior of the island, to see some fantastic natural scenery and some of the original villages of the island.
Kos is also known as a shopping paradise, with nice jewelry shops, hand painted icons, locally produced fresh alimentation products, and local artwork, and you can do all your shopping on the spot.
