Kos Mini Guide
Kos is part of the Greek Dodecanese Islands and is a popular holiday retreat with Europeans. This small island is located not far away from the Turkish coast and sits in the Aegean Sea surrounded by beautiful blue waters.
Most people go to Kos to have a beach holiday, though the island is not bad for cycling being relatively flat. There are also a few sights of archaeological interest for the curious visitor as the island got involved in the Trojan War many centuries ago.
Many intriguing fossils have been found at Kos too. But although the island is small there are more than 100 kilometres of beautiful beaches around its coastline making Kos the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
The main town of Kos is also called Kos and it is centred on a port and harbour. At the entrance of the harbour is a 14th century fortress which adds to the serene scenery of Kos.
An interesting part of the town is a tree and temple which mark where the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates was alleged to have been born. Hippocrates is thought to have been one of the fathers of Western medicine.
