Kos is an island which can offer the ideal holiday to almost every taste.
For those who want a totally relaxing break, lazing on the beach, Tingaki is the ideal resort. The beach of Tingaki has fine sand which gently shelves into the sea remaining shallow for some distance. This makes it ideal for families with young children. Sunbeds and parasols are plentiful and reasonably priced.
For those looking for water sports, Tingaki offers a range of activities including water skiing, wind surfing, banana boats and ringos.
Further away from Tingaki, approximately 5 km outside of Kos Town in Psalidi is the Fun Water Park with water slides and several pools with various activities. In Mastichari, further down the coast from Tingaki, is a new Fun Water Park one of the largest in the Aegean.
Staying on land, for those with a love of horses, horseriding is available in Tingaki near to the Alikes salt lake. Also, 2 km from Tingaki centre on the road to Marmari is the Go Cart race track.
Kos is well known as a cyclists haven as most of the area is flat. Bicycle hire is freely available and reasonably priced.
For those less energetic, there are several car hire shops in Tingaki
and throughout the island in each town and village. The island is
only approximately 42 km from Kos to Kefalos and car hire is a good way of exploring the island. One can visit the furthermost village of Kefalos and eat freshly caught fish in one of the local tavernas, or take the mountain road up to Zia to see the fantastic view, eat a traditional Greek meze lunch and browse around the quaint gift shops. There is the main town of Kos for visiting the archaeological sites, watching all the local fishing and excursion boats at the harbour, or taking a look at the great selection of shops in town including the Old Town area, or maybe visiting Thermae, the furthermost point after Psalidi, where there are thermal springs which have healing properties.
For those who don’t drive, there are of course plenty of professionally organised tours available from any local travel agencies.
