Discover KOS

On the edge of the Dodecanese, Kos is a feast of emotion, experience and excitement. Tall palm trees, endless sandy beaches, alternating landscapes and layers of archaeological sites and attractions left by ancient Greeks, Romans, mediaeval knights and Venetians make Kos more than just a pretty face.

Hippocrates, antiquity’s most noted doctor, was born here, on one of the most visited islands of Dodecanese. Whichever you choose of the aliases Kos has gone by – Meropi, Nymphaia or Karys – this fascinating island in the Aegean will engrave itself into your holiday diary.

Enjoy its beauty!
