Papa's Beach Bar

Reviewed By RachelElizaA - Whitstable, United Kingdom

Best place in Kos for souvlaki! Great food. The staff here are extremely attentive and so so friendly. The menu offers a great variety of both traditional Greek food and other foods like pasta, pizza etc. Fourth time in Kos and this year was the first visit to Papa's but it definitely won't be my last. Amazing amazing amazing!

Eleftherias Square

Reviewed By Manuela L - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

My favourite square in town, nice place to stroll, to visit the municipal museum, but I'm so unhappy that the earthquake of July 2017 has destructed the elegant tower of the moschee and the small jewellery shop and the Fountain before is in a bad condition;
Hope that all this povery shoud be reconstruct.

Casa Romana Kos

Reviewed By jdbalaska - Anchorage, Alaska

It is worth visiting if you are in Kos Town. The main thing to see are the mosaic floors, which however were difficult to appreciate because of either the very bright sun (in some places) or the darkness of the rooms, and the fine coating of dust that seemed to cover them. They looked quite washed out and faded. I was actually able to appreciate them better after editing my photos. There are only a few fragments of wall frescoes, some pottery, a collection of coins, and some good interpretive signs to help visitors understand how the people lived.

Kos Town Cathedral

Reviewed By Richard S - Chelmsford, United Kingdom

Have been visiting Kos for many years and how sad we were to see this beautiful Cathedral so damaged by the recent earthquake. Do hope that the authorities / the Greek Orthodox church allocate the money to repair this lovely building. I wonder if they will ????

Roman Odeon of Kos

Reviewed By alanbrown489 - Selby

The Odeon is well preserved and fully accessible, and the Catacombs that run underneath it are a delightful curiosity, complete with a resident bat who probably thinks it's permanent twilight as he flies around. Free and worth seeing.

This was built by knights Templar and is Kos' main tourist attraction.

A must see place, just like some of the other historic places in the town. Your will see the castle from the earlier day upto the end of the second World War. A great culture site

Embros Therme

Reviewed By siegfried_flanders - Aalst, Belgium

What a beautiful place
Go there and enjoy the very warm volcanic pool with the air bubbles amongst dozens of other tourists.
Normally this is totally not my cup of tea, but this is special. The drive up there is splendid with lovely views and the place is jaw dropping.
Don't miss out on this one.
It's awesome

Lambi Beach

Reviewed By BroLucius - Winchester, England

Lambi beach runs north from the Kos-Bodrun ferry terminal for over 1 kilometre. It is choc-a-bloc with umbrellas and loungers, belonging to the solid run of restaurants backing the beach. The beach itself is mainly sandy, but the entry to the sea is shingle. Still OK for entering in bare feet. The sea is deep blue, very clear, and perfect for a swim. It deepens quite quickly as you go out.

The Antimachia Windmill

Reviewed By Michael G

The last windmill in service in Greece can be found here! The guide, a young lady, leads you through the windmill and explains in detail the windmill, the history, the work of the operator and everything you need to know in a professional, very friendly way - a real highlight!
The mill itself is in perfect condition and the 2,50€ is cheap as you get cookies after the tour which have been made with the flour coming from the windmill.
Worth a recommendation!
