Our Guide to Kos

Kos Marina

Kos Marina is based a short coastal walk from Kos, a tourist town with a very lively nightlife, and which is popular with students.  The marina has a delightful restaurant, as well as a shop, chandlery and laundry facilities.  Toilet and shower facilities are to a decent standard, and the marina is well sheltered from the prevailing winds. 

Kos is most famous for being the home of Hippocrates - the father of first aid - and is an excellent starting point to explore the dodecanese islands.


Kos is the fourth most popular place for tourists to visit in Greece, and is visited by over half a million tourists a year.  

Being such a strategic island in the Med, the island has a long and exciting history in both Greek and Roman literature, but is most famous as being the home of Hippocrates, the founder of modern medicine - and the tree under which he taught is still standing in Kos to this day.

The island boasts idyllic beaches, excellent nightlife, and stunning scenery.

Things to see and do

Kos has castles and ancient monuments for culture lovers, plus the famous 2,600 year old tree under which Hippocrates taught his students under.  There is also a museum and some of the finsest seafood in the whole of Greece.

Most tourists head to Kos for the beach - of which there are plenty, and almost all with golden sand and crystal clear seas.

Staying away from the beach, there are hot springs, a secenic coastal road, and a mountain to climb.

Being a fairly remote island, the easiest way to get to Rhodes is by air.

Kos airport has planes from across Europe and some low-cost operators even fly there during high-season.  Travelling onwards from the airport is strauightforwards - the marina is 25km away, which is a 25 minute taxi ride (30 euros) or an hour on the public bus (4 euros - see for details).

Kos can also be reached on the overnight ferry from Athens (Pireus port, which takes 10-12 hours and can be a cost-effective way to travel) or Bodrum in Turkey.
