Kos, Greece 

 

The island of Kos is located in the centre of the Dodecanese chain of Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. It is famous for sea, sun and fun as well as breathtakingly beautiful sandy beaches, but also has many interesting monuments as evidence of its glorious Greek past.

The island is about 45 km long and between 2 and 11 km wide. The south is mountainous and popular with climbers, whilst the north is flat and a firm favourite with cyclists. The island offers great hiking and a wide variety of water sports, which also attract a large number of visitors. Although Kos welcomes the majority of guests in summer, many prefer to visit the island in the quieter periods including the mild winter months.
