The island of Kos, as any other corner of the beautiful Greece, has that irresistible charm, that mix of history and lovely beaches. When in Kos, you have two options. Either focus on the historical part, with its 14th century fortress at the entrance of the harbour, or the Ancient Agora, that was considered one of the biggest in the ancient world, either decide to explore, sunbathe and dive into those amazing clear waters from one of the numerous beaches you will encounter. The choice is yours, but as someone once said, why not both?

Since anyone can be fascinated by the thought of how people of another culture live and what are their traditions, why not starting to know their past and learn a little more about their history? One of the best suggestions is try visiting a little gem of location, called the Roman Odeon of Kos. Good thing that parking your rental car is really accessible, and you will have plenty of time to admire the original architecture of the walls, the fascinating tunnels underneath and the unique mosaic off the side.

Antimachia Castle

Nice view to the sea and Karmadera, the sight of mountain Diakon behind and a lot of untouched natural beauty all around it.

Another similar landmark is the Paleo Pili fortress. It has a parking lot next to that enchanting little chapel, so you have no reason not to add it on your bucket list, more since you have already rented that awesome car! Of course, amazing views when getting to the top of it and the historical atmosphere induced by the well preserved site are included.

Xerokambos Beach

Didn't you get in the mood for some relaxation from all this serious talk? Well, you will be then happy to know that a lot of amazing beaches are at your disposal! One of them is the Xerokambos beach. This is a must visit when in Kos, since is an exotic beach and is known to offer one of the best experiences of a lifetime. Not only that you can take your rental car and drive towards it, but Xerokambos promises to offer you the cleanest of the sands, the loveliest of the waters and the most private and quiet time of your holiday, all in one place.

Still, there are a lot of adventure lovers out there, and for them, the Aquatica Water Park is the most preferable option.
