Looking for great beaches? Eager to explore a large island packed with exciting attractions? Happy to chill out somewhere smaller but largely unspoilt by tourism? Want to be welcomed by a mermaid? Our Kos – Kalymnos short-hop package is what you want.  Both islands have fabulous beaches and water sports, such as windsurfing and kiteboarding. 

Kos, one of the most popular holiday destinations in Greece, is large enough to cater for party people and those seeking a more sedate taste of Greek life. Kalymnos, half an hour away by ferry, is perfect for those who want to get away from the holiday crowds.


Kos first. The harbour in Kos Town greets you with bobbing yachts and multi-coloured fishing boats. The streets are full of lively cafes, bars, shops and even a medieval knights’ castle.  This family-friendly island has one of the biggest water parks in Greece and its varied history means that ancient ruins mingle with the ice cream parlours and tavernas. It’s great for cyclists. It’s as easy to hire a bike as a car to explore an island with masses to see and do. Look for Hippocrates’ plane tree, a great picture opportunity of an ancient tree. But is it really the one the Father of Medicine sat under 2,400 years ago?

Kalymnos colourful main town, Pothia, clusters around a picturesque harbour. The island was once the sponge-diving centre of Greece. Now rugged mountains attract rock climbers from around the world. Hiking and scuba diving are also popular.  But many choose to take life easy and enjoy the quiet beaches, pretty villages and scenic countryside packed into the beautiful, 12-mile long island. And the mermaid? She’s a large bronze statue in Pothia harbour.
