Things to do recommendation

Hi myself and my boyfriend are staying for 2 weeks in Kos town and am wondering if there’s anything people have enjoyed on previous visits that they would recommend. We don’t mind travelling to another area too. We’re both 20 so any water sports, boat trips, restaurants/bars recommendations would be good. Or anything out of the ordinary too. We’re there for a good while so are open to any suggestions. Thank you.

Also what’s the best beach or area on the beach we love swimming so anywhere to swim out and explore would be appealing

The beach in kos town is very shingley, with a lot of rocks as you get in to the sea, lambi beach is better! We did the 3 island boat trip, good day out! Loads of people doing it, just walk along the harbour and see which boat you fancy, all about €25 including lunch! Easily soend a day wandering around the old town, sadly the cathederal and some churches closed due to last years earthquake!

If you want to spend half or a whole day on a beach take the bus to Tigaki which has a lovely beach. There is some wind surfing on one section. Plenty of places to have lunch along the Beach Road.

A trip out on three island boat trip is a great way to spend a day.

It depends where you are staying. On thePsalidi side the beach is poor, quite narrow and not very sandy. On the Lambi side it is much better. It's insanely busy right near the harbour, but OK after about 10 minutes walk onwards.

Tigaki has a lovely beach:

The beach is shingle but we have loved swimming in the sea. Highly recommend Pappa's beach bar - sun beds are better spaced, wonderful welcome and fabulous cocktails. Oh and they have some water sports! 3 island tour us a def must - we went with Archagelos Michael and it was amazing day.

Mr Teddy and I have just spent 7 days in Psalidi, the beaches are very stony so we did not use them. In Kos Town a good trip is on The Yellow Submarine which is a small boat that takes you a little way along the coast. There it stops and you go downstairs to see the underwater fishes where a diver feeds the fish. It was only about 1 and a half hours and only costs 15 euros per person. A lovely sail with cooling breezes. Teddy

Can recommend hiring a car for the day - you can easily cover all the island in a day - rec the thermal spring about 15 minutes outside town , mastahari for lunch, a drive to kefalos, paradise beach, and the villages around Zia for the sunset.
