Kos Island is ideally situated for a variety of excursions. There are numerous ways to travel to surrounding islands and Turkey which is only half an hour's boat ride away.
So why not take a day trip to Rhodes the island of the Sun, famous for it's old town which is literally surrounded by the castle walls and the Acropolis of Lindos where many international celebrities own houses. Symi, the picturesque island in the Aegean with the monastery of Panorimitis. Patmos, where Saint John saw the visions written in the final book of the New Testament, the Apocalypse or Revelations.
Kalymnos, with it's natural sponges and the Church of St Savvas. Nisyros, the volcanic Island where you get to literally stand in the volcano's crater, Leros, Karpathos and even Samos... the list is endless, or while you're here, discover Kos by joining an organised Island tour or a Jeep Safari.
Probably the most popular form of travel are the hydrofoils or the Flying Dolphins as they're affectionately known. Ferry boats are another way or one of the small sailing ships if you're in a romantic mood.
Kos and the surrounding islands have so much to offer that an excursion is an absolute must!
