The delightful island of Kos is a fantastic location for your summer holiday. Blending history, culture and entertainment, Kos manages to offer a little something for everyone. For those looking to relax on the sands there are beaches aplenty, while those looking for something a little more exciting can indulge in boat trips, shopping and sightseeing.
Kos offers many things to do throughout the day and the evening, meaning that visitors to this delightful island will never be bored. For a fun family day out there is no better place to visit than Aqualand Water Park, which provides a number of thrills and spills to get the heart pumping and the adrenaline flowing.
For something a little out of the ordinary you could try some of the boat trips, one of which will take you the 4km out to Bodrum, a great way to experience some Turkish hospitality. You could also visit the Temple of Apollo which is a perfect way to inject a little culture in to your holiday and a fine photo opportunity.
Shopping is another pastime in Kos which you must sample, with a variety of goods available. Fresh produce can be found at the indoor market, which is all locally produced and could be put together into some traditional cuisine perfectly. Other more luxury items like ceramics, lace and jewellery, much of which is handmade can be found in Kos too and would look perfect back at home as a memento of your trip.
Kos Town offers a blend of old town charm and new town entertainment, making it a great destination for those seeking a little culture mixed in with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Days can be spent wondering the tree lined streets, looking through the trendy boutiques and picking up a bargain, whilst evenings are best spent sitting on the terrace of a bar listening to live music, before heading over to one of the nightclubs which are happy to host you all night long, keeping you in tasty cocktail and varied music.
It is also worth mentioning that though a small island Kos offers a number of smaller, more traditional beaches, with long beaches and traditional living which would be a perfect holiday destination for those who want to simply pack beachwear, books and suntan lotion and laze the week away on a beach somewhere. If that sounds like your idea of a good holiday then the resorts of Psalidi and Kefalos might just be perfect for you.
