Blessed with the finest beaches and lushest landscapes in the Dodecanese, Kos is a destination full of natural wonder. If you can tear yourself away from the abundant golden sand, where there’s a never-ending temptation to cool off in the sapphire waters, an island of historical pleasures awaits. Kos Town is where the most interesting attractions can be found, including the 15th-century Castle of the Knights, two mosques from the Ottoman period, and Hippocrates's plane tree. Hippocrates, father of Western medicine, was born here and is held in high esteem by the locals. Take a stroll down the palm-lined seafront promenade or enjoy a drink at one of the town’s cosmopolitan bars. Even though the island has a great deal of respect for its heritage, Kos also embraces the contemporary. Boutique hotels and luxury resorts provide visitors with indulgent holiday experiences, whilst the high-end restaurants of Kos give traditional Greek dishes a modern, mouth-watering twist. For sun, sea, and sand with the option of cultural exploration, it's difficult to look past Kos.
