The Island

You wake up in the morning, you rent a bicycle, ride on the specially formed bicycle paths, wander around the harbor, stumble under the plane tree of Hippocrates, then continue for the mythical Asklepieion and you end up diving into thermal springs. Kos, the second largest island in the Dodecanese islands, with about thirty five thousand permanent residents, is the place of harmonious compositions. The island is touristy and at the same time traditional, cosmopolitan, filled with countless antiquities and sandy beaches. With a coastline of more than one hundred kilometers, it is very difficult not to find a beach that you like!

Recognized as the island of Hippocrates, the father of medicine, offers a variety of activities for visitors, such as diving, cycling, sightseeing in mountain villages, wine tours, explorations in archaeological sites and very interesting gastronomic escapes. Well-known for its legendary bars and the lively nightlife of previous decades, Kos is gradually developing a complex tourist product and evolving into an attractive destination for the whole year.

The changed positive attitude of residents, hoteliers and entrepreneurs towards the local production and cuisine has played decisive role in changing its identity. Wine, honey, oil, meat, fruit, herbs and vegetables not only preserve the authentic taste of traditional recipes but also enrich the diet of thousands of visitors. Indeed, the well-known sweet "little tomato", is even better and it still fills the bags of the travelers on their way home.
