Kos is the second most popular island of Dodecanese, after Rhodes. Known for its historical sites, beautiful beaches, and lush vegetation, Cos is visited by almost 1 million tourists every year!
Kos has a 5,000 years long history and has been influenced by many cultures, such as the Romans, the Venetians, the medieval Knights, and the Ottomans. Thanks to the remains of all these cultures, sightseeing is one of the best things to do in Kos. The most important of them is Asklepieion, one of the top holistic healing centers of the ancient world, which followed the medical guidelines of Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. Other sights worth visiting in Kos are its churches, Neratzia medieval castle, the ancient Greek Agora, and Antimachia Castle.
One of the best things to do in Kos is cycling. It’s not a surprise that the island is also known as the “Cycling island”, as bicycling is a very popular means of transportation. There’s also a 13 km long cycling road, ideal for bike strolls, starting from Faros beach and ending at Psalidi beach! Apart from the cycling road, though, there are many mountain cycling trails, ideal for cycling in nature!
What can we say about Kos beaches? They are endless! Sandy, shingle, crowded, secluded, organized, unorganized… There’s a beach for every taste and they are all easily accessible. Don’t miss to visit some of the best Kos beaches, such as Kardamena beach, Tigaki beach, Mastichari beach, Marmari beach, and Kefalos beach.
