Explore Kos


Dodecanese’s most exciting destination!

Kos Island is among Greece’s most popular tourist destinations, receiving millions of visitors each year who are drawn by the islands’ history, gorgeous beaches, bountiful land with thick vegetation, casual atmosphere, and luxury resorts.

 


Kos Town

Kos Town is only 4 kms away from the resort. Here one can find archaeological remains, shops, banks and plenty of nightlife. The island of Kos is ideal for walking holidays, biking (it is the only Aegean island with dedicated cycle paths on most roads), visits to archaeological sites including the Asklipeos where Hippocrates taught. Besides golden, dazzling beaches there is much more that the Greek Island of Kos has to offer. Famous since antiquity and notably for being the birthplace of Hippocrates, the first medical doctor in the world, visitors flocked to Kos to worship at the temple of Apollo or to be treated at the Asklepieion and to take advantage of the natural therapeutic qualities of the thermal springs which are still in use even to this day, most noteworthy of the ancient visitors being Cleopatra of Egypt. It climaxed during the Hellenistic and Roman periods, being a crossroad between civilisations, between East and West, the meeting point for both culture and trade. Its public market was of great fame during the antiquity and still is thriving in our days.
