Kos

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  South Aegean  /  Dodecanese  /  Kos
A tiny island big on history and tradition, Kos appears littered with ancient ruins and well-preserved Corinthian columns. Located just 4 km (2 mi) from the coast of Turkey, this minute Aegean island boasts over 100 km (60 mi) of coastline and offers a string of immaculate beaches within easy walking distance of fine shops, bars, and hotels. The past and present seem to converge within the narrow streets of the town of Kos, where cosmopolitan cafes sit right next to ancient traditional taverns. Tourism and farming remain the island's main sources of revenue, its interior dotted by lush groves of almond, fig, and olive trees. Find what you're looking for from your Kos holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Greece trip builder website .

Where to stay in Kos

A small island packed with ancient ruins and modern hotels, Kos boasts some of the finest five-star accommodations in the Dodecanese. Exclusive hotels dot the island's popular northeastern coastline, offering everything from private swimming pools and buffet restaurants, to spa treatments and evening entertainment. For something less pricey, try a private inn on the island's less-frequented southwest coastline, where you can stay in a cozy room near the sea without breaking the bank.
