Let’s explore the top 5 beaches of Kos Island!

  • Tigkaki beach is hands down the most family-friendly beach, a long stretch of soft sand, surrounded by the verdant greenery of a lavish valley. The waters are rather shallow, perfect for children or beginner swimmers as well as for surfers. The beach is fully organized with every modern amenity and a wide selection of watersports, whereas in the surrounding area you will find an abundance of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops.
  • Lambi beach is the island’s most cosmopolitan. Closer to the town of Kos, the long sandy Lambi features anything you could ask from a beach, exhilarating watersports, facilities and services for a gratifying summery experience, including a vibrant nightlife scene.
  • Therma beach is a unique spot, hidden at the base of a large rock on the southeastern part of the island. A spring of thermal waters rises to surface right where the land meets the sea, creating a pool of hot mineral waters, a unique natural spa, in the sea.
  • Agios Stefanos beach at Kefalos bay is the most picture-perfect beach the island has to offer. A cove of immense beauty, with a scenic islet right in its center and the ruins of an ancient temple is the epitome of a Greek beach. History and beauty merging by the sea to create a beach that will stay in your dreams.

  • Chelona bay is located close to Kardamaina, and it has earned its name – which means “turtle” due to it being a favorite hang-out for large sea-turtles; a beach loved by all its visitors.
