Kos Greece

Kos Greece.

Kos is a beautiful Greek island with warm weather, crystal-clear waters, and picturesque beaches. The island is surrounded by the Aegean Sea and boasts ancient ruins, including the Asklepion, and two medieval castles built by the Knights Templar. Local produce, such as olive oil, honey, and wine, is served alongside fresh seafood and traditional Greek dishes. Island hopping to nearby destinations, like Pserimos and Nisyros, is easy. Whether you’re interested in history or food, Kos has something to offer.

One of the more southerly Greek islands. Kos benefits from good weather for much of the year, with temperatures already in the 20s by April. The island is surrounded by the warm waters of the Aegean Sea and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to soak up the sunshine on one of its many beaches. Perhaps rising only to tuck into freshly grilled seafood in a local taverna.

There’s more to Kos than sunbathing, though. Ancient Greek and Roman ruins can be found across Kos, as well as relics left by more recent arrivals. Including two medieval castles built by the Knights Templar.

Farming is the second biggest industry after tourism. You can expect flavor-packed local produce to appear in many of your meals here, from olive oil to honey, served alongside wine from local vineyards. Once you’ve discovered the best of Kos, both on the coast and in its less-visited, mountainous interior. It’s easy to try a spot of island hopping here, too, with Pserimos, Kalymnos, Plati, and Nisyros offered as a day trip by many boat operators.

Kos is an ideal destination for those seeking to explore the region’s rich history and natural beauty. Its picturesque beaches, crystal-clear waters, and ancient ruins are just a few of the attractions that make this island a must-visit destination. At the heart of the island’s historical significance is the Asklepion. A renowned ruin that has been the subject of countless studies and research projects. In addition to its rich history, Kos is famous for its culinary delights, including a variety of fresh seafood and traditional Greek dishes. For those seeking a more tranquil experience, the island’s lush parks and gardens provide the perfect escape. Whether you are an aficionado of history or a connoisseur of cuisine, Kos is a destination that will satisfy your interests.

Today, two Ottoman mosques survive time in Kos Town and they can be seen in the center of the city.
