Holidays on Kos

"Filled with reminders of its long and intriguing history, the spectacular scenery, stunning beaches and buzzing nightlife make Kos a fabulous place to party."

You are never far from sparkling waters and sun drenched beaches on Kos. The island is small, but perfectly formed, leaving you within 7 miles of the coast wherever you are. So whether you want to bask in the glory of the island's archaeological heritage or lounge in the sun a refreshing swim is never far away.

40km of beaches surround Kos so you won't be short of choices. Kardemena has a long stretch of sandy beach that is popular with many visitors. Kos Town and Lambi have sand and shingle beaches and a gentle wind that is great for windsurfing. Probably the best way to find your ideal beach is to go exploring for yourself since many of the more secluded bays are only accessible by rough tracks. Alternatively try another island such as Kalymnos, Patmos or Nissyros, just a short boat ride away.

Cosmopolitan Kos Town hosts a fruit and vegetable market in the Main Square, leading into the Old Town where interesting gifts, leather, souvenirs and local crafts can be found. The modern shopping district features up-to-the-minute fashion stores and jewellery shops.

Kardamena is undoubtedly the clubbing capital of Kos. Here you will find bars that stay open until the sun comes up and discos playing the latest club anthems. Kos also has a vibrant night life but with an added touch of class. For a more toned down evening Kefalos and Psalidi excel in the art of fine food and wonderful views.

Kos' extensive coastline may be the biggest draw-card for most visitors, however it has a long and proud history that has left a rich legacy. Most Greek islands claim to be the home of something and Kos is no different. Hippocrates, who lived here, is said to be the father of modern medicine and the ruins at Asklipion are those of a healing centre built on his teachings. In Kos Town you'll find monuments and ruins around every corner. Perhaps the most famous is the 14th century Castle of the Knights which dominates the town. If sightseeing becomes too much Kos Town will happily help you recover some energy in one of its many bars, tavernas and restaurants. The size of Kos means that exploration isn't too difficult, the best way to see the sights is by bike and with over 4,000 to hire you shouldn't have trouble finding one.

Local Specialities
Whether you prefer sipping ouzo in typical Greek tavernas or downing a cosmopolitan in sophisticated cocktail bars, you'll always find something to suit. The food here is often locally produced so you will be treated to Kos' fresh melons, oranges, figs and olives. Try seafood or lamb served freshly grilled, generously sprinkled with aromatic herbs, or crisp green salads with feta cheese and Kos lettuce. A popular dish is 'saganaki', goat's cheese dusted with flour and deep fried in olive oil, sometimes flamed in brandy. White and red wines are produced locally and some delicious fruit spirits can be enjoyed dry, as an aperitif, or sweet, as a liqueur.

highlights Sea Breeze The ultimate way to add a touch of class to your Greek experience. For a relaxing day of cruising among the hidden bays join us on our exclusive boat - with a maximum of 30 people you'll be able to stretch out and enjoy the warm sun as the coastline drifts by. Plunge into the crystal clear waters to cool off or search for the marine life whilst snorkeling. A light lunch and drinks will be available to top off this unique day on the Aegean Sea. (ADULTS ONLY)

Volcanic Adventure ... Year after year our most popular trip... Our number one adventure in 2003, this is a vary rare opportunity to step into the land that time forgot. Nissyros is famous for its wild beauty and striking colours and at the heart of the island lies the immense crater of the only active volcano in Greece. Feel the heat as you sense the awesome power of nature in this rocky landscape. Don't forget your cameras, as you'll be taking home some incredible photos to show your friends. There will be a guided tour of the port of Mandraki and its Cliffside Monastery, as well as free time to wander the cobbled streets of enjoy a Greek lunch in one of the many tavernas. The experience of exploring Nissyros with the unique atmosphere of the port and the natural phenomenon of the volcano may stay in your memories long after you return home.

Go Greek Why not join us for an unforgettable evening of entertainment and great local cuisine. You will enjoy live music and traditional dancers in colourful costumes whilst being served a variety of tasty Greek dishes washed down with unlimited wine. There is something for all the family as the sun goes down and you learn to dance like the legendary Zorba!
