Airport Transfers in Kos
This party island is just 4km off the south west coast of Turkey. A small island with beautiful beaches, warm sea, ancient monuments and ruins, and lots to do. Best time to visit is in the spring or autumn, when the heat is not too oppressive.
To get to your holiday accommodation, your TaxiFinders.com chauffeur will meet and greet you at the airport, make sure you’re comfortable in your taxi or minibus, and whisk you to your destination, ready to begin your holiday. Book with TaxiFinders.com before you leave home, pay for the transfer to and from your hotel in the UK, and there’s no need to set some of your holiday money aside for those unknown transport costs.
Kos is a fairly small island, but there’s plenty to keep you occupied for each day of your stay.
Public transport around Kos is good, but there’s no regular bus service from the airport, or in the middle of the island.
Kos Town is the main tourist centre. Eleftherias Square is busy with markets during the day and crowded with the diners and people watchers in the evening. If you’re looking to enjoy water sports, Lambi beach is the place to go. Or, board the early morning road train and travel 4km out of the town to Asklepion, climb the steps to the top and marvel at the views. You can see all of Kos Town and as far as Turkey. Asklepion was built in 300BC in honour of Hippocrates and served as a hospital.
Jump on a local bus to Therma Beach (Bubble Beach). Super for small children, and adults too. Swim in the warm volcanic springs or sunbathe on the black sandy beach.
The town of Mastichari is not too touristy. Treat yourself to a meal in a local fish restaurant, then walk it off along the beach or promenade. Or visit the Lido Waterpark, with its water slides and wave machine. Don’t wear any jewellery or watches on the slides, and don’t take any drinking water into the park. Not a huge park, but enough activities to keep you occupied for a few hours.
The 3 Island Tour could be the highlight of your holiday. Go snorkelling, or swimming from the boat, visit the islands, eat, drink and be merry, and if you’re lucky, the dolphins may swim alongside the boat. And, don’t forget to take your camera!
The lovely little village of Zia, on the north of the island, is nestled on the side of the Dikaion Mountain. Great views. Stop for an evening meal and join in with some Greek dancing. Sunsets can be amazing from here.
On the west of the island is Kefalos. Golden sand, clear blue water, water sports. And when you’re tired of relaxing on the beach, drift into the town, sample some local cuisine at one of the many tavernas, and then stroll along the promenade.
Kardamena is possibly the best known resort on the island. Life centres on the main square – clothes shops, souvenir shops, restaurants offering international cuisine and traditional Greek dishes. Sample the local wine together with locally grown olives. Boogie the night away at one of the many clubs or sit in a cafe and watch the sun go down.
This will definitely be a holiday to remember.
