The Island comprises of three municipalities and they are Kos which is the administrative center and largest town, Dikaio, and Irakleides. Kos is located in the south-eastern Aegean Sea which is south of Kalymnos and north of Nisyros at the ancient Keramiko gulf. It is the third largest island in the Dodecanese.
Kos is very well organised and has everything in terms of tourism infrastructure. The various charms and beauties of the Greek Islands are not visible at the first sight but, after a while, the picturesque villages and the fine beaches amaze all visitors. Kos offers a healthy mild climate most of the year.
The numerous and beautiful beaches of Kos Island are one of the main cause of the popularity of the island. Nestled in picturesque coves or extending over kilometres, those beaches have crystalline waters varying from azure to emerald.
Some of them have smooth pebbles; others have fine white sand, others golden sand and some others are blessed with rare black sand.
The touristy island of Kos has various bars and clubs, mostly located in its capital and its touristy resorts. All those places propose a wide range of music and the possibility to party until dawn.
There are ferries to Kos from most Greek islands, the rest of Dodecanese, Piraeus, The Cyclades, Crete, the Greek islands of the northern and eastern Aegean and Kavala. You will find both domestic and charter flights that fly to Kos on a regular basis as well as ferries that daily depart from Athens (Piraeus port).
You will be offered the best of both worlds, where you can opt for a very well equipped sailing yacht for charter in Greece, with a professional yacht Captain as your guide and instructor.
You can charter the yachts as a bareboat with skipper or enjoy a little more personnel luxury and charter one of the crewed charter yachts.
