Which resort would suit us?

Hi Everyone

I’m hoping for some recommendations please on which resorts might suit us.

Here’s our wish-list….

Nice sandy well cared-for beach with facilities, but not where you’re all packed in like sardines

Not overly “British” resort – we’d prefer a Greek/international feel

Well cared-for resort – we appreciate the recession has hit hard everywhere, but I’d rather not see lots of closed businesses etc.

Plenty of restaurants/bars/tavernas within easy reach - it would be even better if they were on a promenade/seafront (but not really nightclubs)

Accessible to historical/natural sites by hire car

Any recommendations would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you!

You will find pesky Brits in most resorts on Kos but you could make a start by looking at Mastihari. The beach is sandy but can sometimes have a problem with seaweed after a storm. It is a working village is a harbour and maybe a bit more traditional that some other places.


Not so traditional but still a very nice resort with probably the best beach on Kos is Tigaki. We stay here when we visit. Lots of good tavernas, a few good bars but no nightclubs.

If you want it a bit quieter then you may like Kefalos which is at the other end of the island to Kos Town.

Hope this helps.

I agree with Marg. there are quite a few Germans in Tingaki normally, there even travel shops dedicated to them. Lot of British though !!!!!!

You can hire a car, bike or scooter and go to Kos town. lots of historic ruins to see there and a nice town to boot.
