Kos Island

The island of Hippocrates, father of medecine, Kos is an island of magnificent beauty. Besides its breath taking golden sandy beaches, Kos is also steeped in monuments, remnants from its glorious past.

Modern amenities and friendly, smiling faces await you, making Kos the ideal holiday destination, not only as a choice between other Greek Islands but on a worldwide scale. Rich in tradition and imposing sights, Kos is a voyage of discovery.

The mild climate most of the year, the vast beaches, the enormous historical interest and the attractiveness of the city of Kos have gradually raised the island to the level of an international tourist centre. The capital kos is an attractive city full flower gardens, streets with palm tries and marvellous beaches right next to the harbour.

Lot of monuments like the castle of the knights of St. John and the tree of Hippocrates that, tradition says, was planted by Hippocrates himself who taught medicine in its shade. The most heavily visited and the most important monument on the island is the world famous Asklepeion about 3km from the town. The site of the sanctuary is very beautiful, and there is a wonderful view across Kos town and the coast of Asia Minor beyond.

Beyond this cultural affluence, in Kos you can enjoy swimming in one of the countless sandy beaches of the island, or to enjoy the atmosphere of resorts like Kardamena, Tigaki, Marmari, Mastichari, Kefalos, Asfendiou, Antimacheia. You either can spend your whole holiday on a quiet beach in a laid-back village or party all night in the many bars and clubs.

There is so much to see that a week or two just won't do, and that's one of the reasons people keep coming back to the island of Hippocrates. Hotels of all categories and nice restaurants and tavernas are all over the island and the transportation is very well organized.
