It seems that when it comes to finding somewhere that guarantees fun in the sun, the Greek islands never disappoint. And Kos is right up there with the best of them.
Famous for its fabulous beaches, Kos is a real gem when it comes to holiday hotspots. It’s got almost 300km of coastline which means there are plenty of sunbathing opportunities, quiet secluded coves and beautiful photogenic bays. Among the best are Mastichari Beach, which is home to numerous windsurfing centres, about 25km south of Kos Town. Thermes is a small pebbly cove flanked by boulders and craggy cliffs, while Tigaki is a long, sweeping stretch of sandy beach close to Kos Town with shallow shores, perfect for tiny paddling feet.
If it’s a beach break you’re after, you’ll find plenty of cheap holidays to Kos via the many different tour operators. The best bet is to search online and scour the many hundreds of deals available. It might seem like a chore but once you’ve whittled down the options according to your preferences, such as ideal departure date, local resort and board basis, it makes the process a little easier.
The best deals can usually be found on the websites of major tour operators. Take Thomas Cook for instance. As a company that’s been organising holidays for decades, they’re no stranger to putting trips together and will almost always have a great deal or a discount to help make the cost of your holiday that little bit more manageable. You can find Thomas Cook holidays online or on the high street. If price is really top of the priority list, try searching for a late deal – ideally those leaving within the next few weeks – as you’ll usually save a significant amount on the original price of the holiday.
Once you’ve booked, then all that’s left to do is pack, find your passports and head off for a week or two of fun in the sun. What could be better?
