Kos

3.9
A tiny island big on history and tradition, Kos appears littered with ancient ruins and well-preserved Corinthian columns. Located just 4 km (2 mi) from the coast of Turkey, this minute Aegean island boasts over 100 km (60 mi) of coastline and offers a string of immaculate beaches within easy walking distance of fine shops, bars, and hotels. The past and present seem to converge within the narrow streets of the town of Kos, where cosmopolitan cafes sit right next to ancient traditional taverns. Tourism and farming remain the island's main sources of revenue, its interior dotted by lush groves of almond, fig, and olive trees. Kos is in Dodecanese.
