Resplendent with historical sites and white sandy beaches, Kos should feature on every travel bucket list. A jewel in the crown of Greece’s Dodecanese islands off the coast of Turkey, Kos really benefits from its location. A collage of cultures, its cuisine combines the best of both lands, resulting in pure Mediterranean sumptuousness. Look out for delicacies like posa cheese, matured in red wine. Surrounded by water, Kos is a hotspot for water-sports and sun-lounging, and, because of its famously sunny weather, the islanders know how to inject a little fun into keeping cool. Its waterparks make for wonderful family days out.
If a journey into ancient history is your thing, Kos is an ideal destination for you. With hundreds of sites of historical interest and museums displaying fascinating archaeological finds dating back to ancient Greece, there’s such a lot to take in. You can even visit the tree under which, it is claimed, Hippocrates - the father of medicine – taught his students. For those who just wish to get away from it all, this glorious Mediterranean island boasts a halo of sun drenched beaches, while the cosmopolitan feel of the city lends itself to great retail therapy excursions and visits to chilled out bars and cafes. With all this within arms’ reach, it’s no wonder that 5 star holidays in Kos are constantly growing in popularity! However, whether you enjoy the hustle and bustle of the busy city or wish to escape into the quiet of hilly Katafigio Agrias Zois Ag. Fokas – Psalidi, you’ll most certainly get your wish on Kos.
The seasons in Kos are fairly polarised. There is, simply speaking, a hot season and a cold season. The latter only really lasts from December through to March, meaning that the glorious warmth that the Mediterranean is famous for kicks in in mid spring and continues for the remaining nine months, with highs of almost 30 degrees Celsius and temperatures generally remaining above 20 degrees. The Mediterranean sun is tempered with a soft sea breeze.
