About Thermes Beach
Thermes, sometimes also called Therma is a small pebble beach down in the south east of Kos island. On the beach is a taverna with a seating area that serves drinks and snacks. There’s also a few sunbeds and umbrellas available to hire. The beach is surrounded by vast cliffs and you’ll sometimes see goats making death defying walks along incredibly thin sections of those cliffs.
Thermes boasts a natural hot spring that is surrounded by rocks creating a contained pool that can get up to 50°C. If that’s too much for you then you can swim on the outside of the rock pool and you’ll feel the warm water lapping over the edge as the tide goes in and out.
It’s said that hot springs are like a natural spa and have healing properties, it’s also supposedly very good for your skin. There’s a fairly strong “rotten egg” smell that is common with hot springs due to bacteria deep below the surface reacting with the sulfur. Don’t let that put you off though as you soon get used to it, this is a great place to spend a few hours.
Getting to the beach can be a bit tricky, there’s parking available at the road side but you then need to make your way down to the beach on foot and it’s not an easy trek to get down and even worse on the way back up so we wouldn’t recommend Thermes beach for young kids, the elderly or people with mobility difficulties.
