Kos is located at the western reach of the Dodecanese archipelago in the Southern Aegean with easy day-sailing routes between each island. Inhabited since prehistoric times and home to Hippocrates, the father of medicine, Kos bears witness to ancient civilisations and imperial reign, making the landscape an “open archaeological park”. Indeed, one of the major attractions is this region are of course the fascinating remains of temples, monuments and other historical and cultural treasures explored and studied by visitors and academics from all over the world.
The Greek islands are undoubtedly one of the world’s most popular sailing regions. The famous meltemi breeze, deep water, plentiful coves, generally weak tides and tidal streams, and easy sailing between the islands all contribute to ideal conditions for yachtsmen and women seeking a fair-weather, accessible cruising experience. Manager Antonis Drosos advises visiting outside the main tourist season; opting for May, June or September when winds are lighter, as the best months to enjoy the destination.
There is plenty to visit and explore on the neighbouring islands with their beautifully azure waters, taverns, museums and beaches. For more cultural and visitor information on the region, visit: the kos.gr, the island’s official tourist website.
