Kardamena - Kos Travel Guide
Perfect for both party animals and families.
•Kardamena is a great beach destination, popular with the singles, couples, party animals and families. It has grown from a small fishing village to a beachside haven. It's main appeal is its stunning beaches and friendly locals. It also has lots of good value restaurants, water sports and over 100 bars and pubs to enjoy. The four and five star family oriented resorts are spread out along the coast with fantastic views, beaches, entertainment and facilities. And, they tend to be away from the main nightlife area of bar street. So whether you are looking for a cheap and cheerful fun in the sun dance all night kind of holiday; or a relaxing with the family in lovely hotels on idyllic beaches, Kardamena is for you.
•Beaches in Kardamena: Soft white sands and sparkling turquoise waters stretch for 5km along the main beach. Helona or Turtle beach is very pretty and is at the heart of Kardamena's blue flag Gourniatis beach. There are also many swimming pools with snack bars in the resort open to the public. Boat trips stop off at the surrounding islands and the other bays on Kos.
•Attractions: Take the advice of one of our happy holidaymakers: “Get a quad out for the day. The hotel staff arranges the company to pick you up and take you to your quad and drop you home at the end of the day. And it's a great way to see all the sights of the island. We made a day of it and drove the whole perimetre of Kos-fantastic!!!! and for only 30 euros for the whole day!”
