Markos

Markos beach is sandy and quite large with just a couple of rows of sun loungers, a snack hut and a taverna set back from the beach. There's no water sports but kids can play in the sand or shallows so it's great for families.

Exotic

Exotic beach, also known as Polemi Beach is a nudist or textile optional beach on the south coast, It's sandy, has a small snack kiosk, sheltered loungers and is well signposted off the main road that runs down the centre of the island making it very easy to find.

Kamari

Kamari beach is a small pebble and sand beach towards the south west of the island just 2km from Kefalos. There's a small shop at the back of the beach and a couple of tavernas too. There are sun beds to rent but no water sports or other facilities.

Kardamena

Kardamena beach is at the southern end of Kardamena town on the south coast of Kos. It’s a large sandy beach which gets very popular, mainly with the younger crowd that are looking to party in the evening and recover on the beach in the day.

Kefalos

Kefalos beach is a long and narrow beach on the south east of Kos. Kefalos beach runs from Kamari beach in the south to Agios Stefanos beach in the north. The beach is mainly sandy with some shingle. It’s popular but due to it’s length it doesn’t feel crowded.

Kos Town

The main beach of Kos town is actually a continuation of Lambi beach as it heads south and approaches the harbour. There are tons of sunbeds available to hire, tavernas for refreshments, water sports and even beach parties in the evenings.

Lagada

Lagada is one of the south coast beaches and neighbours both Paradise beach and Markos beach. It’s often referred to as banana beach but it’s signposted as Lagada. There’s minimal facilities but you can walk to other beaches if needed.

Lambi

Lambi beach lies just north of Kos Town. It's a popular beach with water sports and many other facilities.The beach is sand in the north but gets more and more pebbly as you go south and get closer to Kos Town, in places it can be rocky around the entrance.

Limnionas

Limnionas is a small sand beach with shingle in some areas, particularly around the entrance to the sea. Limnionas has a single row of sunbeds available to hire but no water sports or other entertainment. It's a bit out of the way so never gets too busy.

Magic

Magic beach is on the south coast and sits between Exotic beach and Sunny beach. As you’d expect it has the same slightly coarse sand with some scattered rocks. On the beach there are a couple of rows of sunbeds with umbrellas to rent but no water sports.
