Travel Tips for Kos

Mandraki Harbour

by Helga67

The harbour is a nice place to walk along the promenade, which will lead you from dolphin square to the castle and beyond. There are many colourful fishing boats and yachts for day trips. Along the promenade across the street you can have something to drink or eat in one of the many cafes and restaurants.

Boat trips

by sandysmith

Just as in Rhodes the harbour is full of boats offering excursions.The trip across to Turkey and various other small islands as a days trips with a BBQ lunch - a really enjoyble way to spend a day - seemed to be the most popular and frequent on offer. Just take some time looking at the boats and see which trip you'd like to make.

Hippocrates Plane Tree

by grayfo

In front of the Castle of Knights is a huge old plane tree, known as the ‘Hippocrates plane tree’. According to the people of Kos, the Hippocrates plane tree was planted by this famous Greek physician, who used its shade to teach his students in this place. As the tree is 500 years old, it is pretty obvious not the same tree that Hippocrates planted, since he lived around the 5th century BC, but it is claimed to be a descendant of that one.

June 1999

Town Hall

by steventilly

The town hall and tourist police HQ occupy this very splendid looking building that is on the waterfront just beyond the castle. From its architecture I'd guess it's from the Italian era. Behind this building is Hippocrates tree and the Loggia mosque.
