The Beautiful Island of Kos

Oct 22, 2007
Kos sits bang in the middle of the Dodecanese chain of Greek islands that hug the Turkish coast. Kos Island is about 45km long while its width varies from 2km to 11km.

This is a hugely popular resort with the British and it is a Greek island that has gone for mass market tourism is a very big way. Kos has its own airport, and ferry connections, and here you can find excellent value new houses.

Kos is a popular Island with all nationalities, and some beautiful sandy beaches and good tavernas and is well worth a visit to meet our Web partner and look for property

The coast of Kos is swept by magnificent sandy beaches and the island has some of the most interesting archaeological sites in the Mediterranean. But avoiding the tat can be demanding.

Its large part ruin and large part ruination, thanks to the package tourism that has annihilated much of the Greek culture. Nevertheless, the island still has much to offer the more discerning visitor.

The combination of sand and sightseeing give Kos a uniquely broad appeal, though most visitors will probably prefer island beaches to Greek history. And, for an all in beach holiday Kos must be considered one of the best of the Greek islands.

Its unfortunate that isolated hotel complexes are now a more characteristic feature than villages or resorts, especially around Kos Town, along the northern coast and around Kardamena.

But the island is too big to seem overcrowded. There are many empty coastal areas to be enjoyed by those who prefer to get away from the holiday crowds.
The east coast of Kos is package tour heaven. To see just how packed it can get you have only to follow the road that runs from Lambi in the north to Agios Fokas in the south.

The island undoubtedly has a lot to see and do and some of the beaches are very good, although perhaps best visited outside the peak season in July to August.

Whilst much of the sand at the waters edge has disappeared, leaving quite an uncomfortable walk across sharp stones into the water or along the water line, sandbags have been placed to help with access to the water.

Several contributors comment favourably on the lovely sand, warm water and clean sea, although keen swimmers might be disappointed that you have to walk at least 100 yards from the beach before youre more than waist deep.
