Kos, Dodecanese Islands
Kos is a small island in the Dodecanese, near Turkey. This peaceful island has always been home to holidaymakers and resort lovers, but now is far more welcoming to the average visitor. Most people come for the beaches, but the towns of Kos itself is worth spending time in, thanks to its fortressed ruins and plenty of delicious dining options. Head into the mountains for even more rural living.
