27 May 2013

Customer Travel Tip: Rent a scooter to explore the island. Swim in the hot volcanic pool at Empros Thermi (south east cost). See the sunset at Zia with a breathtaking view over the sea and the neighbouring islands. Stroll through Kos City at night.

Liked: The greek people on this island are very friendly and decent. They don't urge you and stay friendly and wish you a nice day even if you don't buy anything. If you ask for information, they are very helpful. The drivers are very careful and go slow. We had rented a scooter and never felt unsafe.

Disliked: Umbrella and beach beds are 7 Euro (at Paradise Beach.) Beside some beaches, there is not too much to do.

Disliked: The season had not really started so some places were like ghost towns so it is difficult to comment.
