It's the third largest Dodecanese Island, and being one of the most central islands in the area, has fantastic ferry and hydrofoil connections to its neighbouring islands as well as Athens on the mainland. For this reason Kos is also a very popular island hopping destination.

Holidays in Kos are famous for its lively atmosphere and clubbing holidays for the younger tourist. This is only half of the charm that Kos has to offer though, away from the buzzing nightlife and bar crawls there's a whole wealth of local charm and culture to enchant you and attract holiday makers of every kind with a variety of budgets to suit.

Kos Town is the capital of the island as well as a very popular tourist resort set on the north eastern coast, only 15 km from the islands airport and with its own port this town is a perfect mix of cosmopolitan and traditional. Kos Town offers you the choice of spending your long sunny days taking advantage of the many water sports along the fantastic sandy beach or moseying down the cobbled streets and tree lined promenade.

Throughout the town you can witness the Greek and Roman ruins as you're strolling around or you can take a trip to the famous Castle of the Knights and bask in the culture.
