Kos is the perfect destination for those who want to relax in a laid-back harbour town in the day but then take it up a notch and party until dawn. Kardamena is for night owls who want lively nightlife and their pick of bars and clubs. The capital of the island Kos town is also a sure bet for pubs, buzzing cocktail bars and pulsating clubs. For those who'd rather unwind, there are plenty of calmer resorts. Psalidi, Kamari and Kefalos are perfect for those who'd rather enjoy a stunning beach view with a lovely meal at an authentic taverna.
When you think of Greece you probably think of whitewashed houses and old stone windmills. In Kos, you can find this postcard-perfect side of Greece. Antimachia Windmill is just a few kilometres from Antimacheia. Here you'll get to see what life was like in the early 20th century on this island and see the only working windmill on Kos. Want to connect with nature and experience it from a different perspective? How does riding through dunes on the back of a horse sound? Time your excursion to fall at sunset and you'll get to admire a sky filled with vibrant hues. Most stables even pick you up and drop you off at your hotel, making it convenient. Families and those looking for a thrill should visit Aquatica Waterpark, which has rides for every age and level of daring. Of course, Kos is a Greek island so you'll have plenty of turquoise beaches with white, powdery sand to enjoy as well.
