Kos holidays

Relax on the island of Kos

Along with Rhodes, Kos belongs to the Dodecanese islands, known for their long sandy coastlines. The beaches are the biggest draw here, but Kos also has mighty ancient ruins, lush valleys, olive groves and beautiful wildflowers. Thanks to its largely flat terrain, the island is great for cycling, and the natural hot springs at Therme Beach on the south coast are a popular attraction.
