Situated in the South Eastern Aegean Sea, Kos is the third largest in the Dodecanese and has a reputation for being the most temperate place in the world. The island has been important nautically since prehistoric times and is the birthplace of the father of medicine, Hippocrates, who was born there around 460BC. The circumnavigation of Kos measures 60 nautical miles and has some of the best pleasure boating Europe has to offer.
In May 2001 the Marina of Kos Island was officially opened. Situated next to the old harbour at the very heart of the Dodecanese it offers the very best quality marine and leisure services to guests. There are plentiful births and a full range of marine services including pilot speedboat, bilge pump outing, waste oil disposal, fuel station, WC and showers as well as conference facilities and guest suits.
Kos itself is a place of many legends, a land steeped in the countries rich mythology. This can all be experienced at the fabulous choice of museums, galleries and archaeological sites dotted around the island. For those wanting to relax there are some of the finest beaches in the world, ranging from the sheltered fishing bay at Limnionas to the jaw dropping Paradise Beach (they donít call it that for nothing). Kos town centre is vibrant, colourful and friendly with a vast choice of bars, cafes and restaurants serving traditional local food and wines. The evenings in Kos (or anywhere on the island for that matter) have an air of mystery and magic. To say Kos is a place of romance is an understatement.
Whatever you are looking for from your holiday in the sun, great beaches, leisure activities, superb sailing and water-sports, fine food and nightlife or a simple relaxing family break, Kos is virtually unbeatable on all levels. But been warned, once you have drank in the beauty of this wonderful island you will remain under its spell for the rest of your life.
