Although most people flock to Kos for the wonderful beaches and thriving nightlife, the island is also steeped in history and full of cultural highlights. Kos Town is peppered with Hellenistic and Roman ruins, including the stunning Castle of the Knights that has towered above the town since the 14th century. The Temple of Hercules and the 5th century Basilica are other amazing relics of the ancient world well worth a visit. However, perhaps the most fascinating site on the entire island is the ruin of Asklepion where early medical students followed the teachings of Hippocrates. Known as the father of Western Medicine, Hippocrates was born on Kos and is the island’s favourite son. The main town itself also has a great selection of vibrant bars where you can party into the wee small hours, as well as some traditional restaurants serving moussaka and other mouth-watering Greek delicacies.
Of course, some of the chief attractions of Kos are the wonderful beaches. Rent a car in Kos and you can explore the island at your own pace and discover hidden coves and calm stretches of sand. Resorts offer water sports and beach activities from volleyball to parasailing. Whether you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, or some laid back pampering, Kos caters for all tastes.
