Kos Island is one of the most visited islands of the Southern Sporades archipelago. Compared to other islands, Kos has a relatively small size. Its total area is 288 square kilometers. Herewith, thousands of tourists annually visit the island. Such popularity is due to the island’s location and comfortable conditions for recreation.
Kos town Ferry Port
Kos Ferry Port is the major harbor of the island. Its convenient location allows vessels, entering the port area, to moor by the docks with no harm for their state. If the weather is stormy, the yachts and small speedboats usually moor by the docks of Kos Marina that is only one kilometer from the major pier.
In the evening, the port area turns into a place for a walk and relaxation. Here, you can meet both tourists and local inhabitants. Local cafes and restaurants gladly invite visitors to try their signature dishes and snacks.
In 2016, Kos Island was among the stops of the Rodos Cup International Sailing Race route. In 2019, the race route was changed. However, Kos Island (or “the island of Hippocrates”) still stays a traditional place for the departures of the yachts. The Greek competition of “Rodos Cup” lasts from 20 to 27 in July.
That is why, if you decide to visit the island of Kos during this period, then we recommend that you order a transfer or taxi beforehand. During this time, one will have an opportunity to enjoy a lot of interesting things and activities.
