As with most Greece holidays, Kos offers something for families and groups of friends alike. Whether that is a riotous non-stop party, a spell of total rest and relaxation or a mix of the two it's up to you!

Although under Greek administration heavenly Kos is located just off the western coast of Turkey in the glorious Aegean. This lush island covered in olive groves and vineyards is also a fertile place for exciting holidays. As well as the island's exquisite natural beauty the plethora of man-made attractions, primarily in Kos Town make package holidays to Kos as popular as ever.

History looms large on Hippocrates Island. Ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian sites are dotted all over the island of the noted philosopher's birth. With such a fascinating historical legacy there is much to see but for party animals the main attraction is the town of Kos. Pubs, tavernas and waterside bars are practically shoe-horned into the flamboyant, bustling capital. Late nights are de rigueur in a town built for fun. Go Greek and enjoy local specialities such as moussaka and souvlaki washed down with Ouzo. Or stay with the familiar with alternatives such as pasta, pizza and of course English grub; all in plentiful supply.

Away from Kos Town, Paradise Beach is without doubt one of the premier attractions of Kos holidays. On the south west of the island this sandy haven is around 20 miles from Kos Town, just outside the village of Kefalos. This glorious sandy beach is popular with water sports enthusiasts and sun worshippers alike and the presence of a few handy tavernas just off the beach help make for an enjoyable visit.

Much of the accommodation available on Kos is in cheerful family run pensions or self-catering studio apartments. Indeed most cheap holidays to Kos normally involve a stay in such accommodation. However, there is also an impressive collection of quality three and four star hotels on the island and they occasionally appear in the holiday bargain lists. So look carefully and you could soon be on a flight to Kos.
