Kos Holiday Packages
Crystalline waters surround sun-bleached resorts and antediluvian ruins on the lovely island of Kos. A popular destination in the Greek island chain of Dodecanese, Kos attracts travellers with escapism daydreams. What makes this place special is the lush foliage, mountain villages and stretches of beach that beckon you to unwind. A Kos holiday is also full of history and legendary mythos. In fact, Greek mythology connects the island with the famous Greek hero Hercules.
Things to Do in Kos
From Kardamena to Lambi, Kos holiday packages offer stays near the beach with picturesque white sand and so-very-blue waters. One popular destination for beach bums is Kefalos Village. In this quaint village, land-based adventures will (temporarily) draw you away from sunbathing. Trek along the narrow alleyways and to the ruins of the Basilica of Agios Stefanos to start your explorations. Then head to the mountains near the village of Zia, where mesmerising sunsets from rooftop balconies are the norm.
To absorb the history of Kos, explore the Asklepieon archaeological site. This attraction in Eleftherias Square features Roman ruins, the Church of St. John the Baptist and the Archaeological Museum of Kos. Get easy access to these areas and attractions with a guided tour, one of Wotif’s Kos car hire options or tourist train.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Retail therapy need not stop on holidays. Shop the eclectic venues in Kos Town by visiting stores offering trendy and traditional Greek souvenirs. Old Town boutiques offer unique local goods like soaps, leather products, jewellery and artwork. If you're bringing along the kids, head to Konitsis Square for an abundance of international toy brands. You can also browse around the mountain villages for handmade products.
After a full day of shopping, sample some tasty Greek food. Whatever itinerary you’ve planned as part of your Kos packages, you cannot bypass the local cuisine. Head to the back roads of Kos Town to experience authentic Greek dishes in taverns and cafes. From Astakos to Htapodi, the flavour of the seafood dishes in particular will grab your taste buds and not let go. Back at the main square, you will find supermarkets full of fresh produce and bakeries with pita or tsoureki. Want cheese with that bread? Check the markets for krasotiri and mizithra.
Without a doubt, Kos holidays are made better by taking advantage of the nightlife. After indulging in a very satisfying meal or two, you'll want to work it off by hitting the bar scene. Get ready to move and groove by way of the spunky taverns and nightclubs that Kos offers. Make your way to Diakon and Nafklirou to find the best nightlife venues and best parties.
