Head to the beautiful resort of Kardamena which is situated on the rocky hills of Kos Island. This four star secret hotel is a stone’s throw away from a magnificent beach with golden sand. The hotel’s stylish outdoor pool is beside a brilliant terrace which has spectacular panoramic views of the sea. There is a children’s pool for kids too. Need entertainment? Do not fret as there is a multi sports court, where you can have a game of football and play basketball or tennis. In the evenings the animation team will entertain you and your family at the amphitheatre. Delicious local and international dishes are available in the buffet restaurant, while mouth watering Barbecue food is served in the pool’s restaurant. Rooms will have a balcony, satellite TV, air conditioning, a fridge and a bathroom.
The first thing to do is head to the superb local beach where you can go for a romantic stroll or kick back and catch some rays on the sun loungers. Those in search of adventure should head across the coast for the water sport excursions that are offered.
If you head into the centre of the resort there will be many lively English style pubs and eateries where you can grab a pint or a bite to eat. At night the area transforms into a party goer’s extravaganza dream; there is a vibrant array of nightlife activity that goes on around the harbour front.
Kos is a stunning island that can be explored by foot with no trouble at all. It’s mainly flat meaning that non serious hikers can easily travel around and see the astonishing natural sights. More serious hikers should not fret as there are two beautiful mountains on Kos Island – Mount Dikaios and Mount Simpetros. The panoramic views of the forests from the peaks are absolutely out of this world – it will be heaven on earth for hiking enthusiasts!
Culture vultures should visit Paleo Pili in Kos Town, an ancient Byzantine fortress. Unless you plan on hiking there you must rent a car, as it is situated at the top of a steep hill in the Pili village. During tourist seasons you could be more adventurous and take a donkey ride up to the fortress. There are astounding views from the fortress that will simply take your breath away. On your way up to the attraction there is a marvellous little chic cafe worth stopping at for a cup of coffee.
