About Antimachia

Antimachia is a lovely village that lies 23 kilometres south west of Kos town, about a 30 minute drive but really close to the airport, roughly 5 minutes away in the car.

Antimachia is an ancient settlement and retains a lot of it’s character and charm. In the village you’ll find Milos tou Papa, which translates to mill of the priest and is a traditional windmill that’s been well restored and looked after. You are also close to the Antimachia Venetian Castle as well as the Lido water park and the Hippocrates cultural centre.

As this is a traditional village it’s not really somewhere to stay but there is limited accommodation available as well as a number of tavernas, shops and restaurants.

Antimachia is definitely worth a visit though, especially as you’ll likely be going right past it on your way to or from the airport.

As Antimachia is inland there are no beaches nearby but if you head up to the north coast you can easily get to Mastichari beach or if you head south you can go to Kardamena beach.
