What is Kos Best Known for?

IIf you are planning a summer Kos holiday, schedule a discovery journey along the island's sandy beaches. Kefalos, Thermik, Agios Stefanos, and Mastihari have fine sandy beaches and are generally quieter. Not far from Mastihari are Tigaki and Marmari, which are among the most visited holiday regions on the island due to the variety of water sports they offer. The island's interior is slightly higher and steeper, while along the coastlines, the clear sea water invites you to take a dive. Kos, the birthplace of Hippocrates, has a deeply rooted history. From ancient times until today, it has been populated by different civilizations and cultures, each of which has left its mark. Worth seeing when visiting Kos town are the ancient Agora, the Casa Romana, the Neratzia castle, and the ancient temple of Asklepieion.

Kamari Beach is located in the south of the island in Kefalos Bay. It is characterized above all by its length and width, which makes it a popular destination for beach lovers. The crystal clear waters invite you to bathe for hours. The great view of the bay can be enjoyed from the adjacent restaurant, especially with a cozy snack.

Lambi Beach

Due to its proximity to Kos town in the north-east of the island, Lambi Beach is just as popular with local residents as it is with holidaymakers and therefore offers a good touristic infrastructure. Whether you're looking for a good gastronomic offering from a popular Kos restaurant, comfortable sun loungers, or water sports, everything is available at Lambi Beach. The beach has lively but also quieter sections. It is ideal for walks, and it is also worth coming here in the evening.

Castle of Antimachia

While looking for things to do in Kos, remember that a journey back in time awaits you with a visit to the Castle of Antimachia. This fortress stands completely lonely on a hill above Kardamena Bay. For a long time, it served as a place of refuge for the population to get to safety from enemy attacks and to defend themselves from there. People lived here until the middle of the 18th century, when the castle area was no longer sufficient. The site is a bit overgrown, but the way up here is certainly worth it since the view over the bay is just wonderful. There are traces of the former residents to be discovered everywhere, and two small churches are freely accessible.
