Things To Do on Kos Town Holidays

Kos Town is the centre of the island when it comes to things to do. Visit the Plane Tree where Hippocrates was said to have taught his pupils or visit one of the many museums nearby. If museums aren’t your style, visit the Odeum, an ancient roman theatre built in the third century and excavated just within the last century.

If rare archaeological finds tickle your fancy, visit Ancient Town, where you will see some of the most fabulous ruins in Greece. An Hellenistic temple, once dedicated to Hercules, and a sanctuary of Aphrodite watch over the Town of Kos, now standing as a majestic reminder of ancient civilisation.

Of course, more modern attractions abound, as well, as Kos Town is full of plenty of shopping, restaurants, and nightclubs. Or you can enjoy some of the more popular water sports, such as water skiing, windsurfing and even scuba diving. Regardless of your tastes, there’s something in Kos Town that everyone in your family can enjoy!


The centre of all activity on the island is Kos Town, and it is full of the life of its inhabitants. Spirits run high on the infamous 'Bar Street', and the spirits of the ancient scholars can be felt within the many museums, shrines, and castles that dot the area. A predominantly Greek Orthodox community, Kos Town also offers safe harbour for those of all walks of life.


Dance the night away in one of Kos Town’s many nightclubs or discotheques. Or if you prefer a more traditional evening, join one of the many clubs offering traditional Greek step-dancing and kick up your heels. The nights in Kos Town are nearly as bright as the days; life in Kos doesn’t end when the sun goes down! If the bars and clubs aren’t your scene, take a leisurely stroll along the shore in the moonlight. The sea is particularly breathtaking when viewed in the night air, perfect for romantic couples.
