Kos Town
Beachwise, there is a beach to the S, a long, very narrow strip of shingle supplemented by imported sand. N of the harbour at Lambi is a better broad and sandy beach. Both are well equipped with amenities and offer a range of water sports. A fantastic variety of meat, vegetables and groceries on sale from the castellated market. There is a post office, banks and tourist office nearby. Souvenir shops in considerable numbers, with leather, jewellery and natural sponges being specialities. Smart boutiques in the harbour area. Entertainments in the daytime offers beach- and water-based activities, including water-skiing, jet-skiing and sailing. Other activities available include cycling. For a more cultural experience exploring the town, including a Roman amphitheatre, villa and baths, Temple of Dionysos, the ancient market (agora), archaeological museum and Castle of the Knights of St John are all a must. Nightlife has many lively discos, bars, clubs and pubs, concentrated in 2 streets in the centre and around the waterfront. There is a generous choice of tavernas and restaurants, with the greatest concentration around the harbour, cheaper options are available near the beaches. Mediocrity generally rules. Kos Town is perfectly situated for taking boat trips to Turkey and the nearby islands.
