Kardamena is a small town in the centre of the south coast of Kos, roughly 7km from the airport and about 30km from the capital. Kardamena is known for its lively nightlife and although it doesn’t get quite as raucous as the likes of Kavos or Malia it’s not far behind.
There is the harbour area with lots of late night bars, bar street which has more bars with people shouting various drink offers to get you in their bar and a few clubs. Bar street leads on to the square with, you guessed it, more bars.
The unusual thing about Kardamena is that the music goes off at midnight so the late evenings are spent enjoying the night air and chatting or you move on to one of the clubs that has sound proof doors.
On the outer edges of the town are some newer all-inclusive hotel complexes and quieter areas but Kardamena is still generally for the 18-30 drinking crowd and because of that it has a lot of quite basic accommodation at a very affordable price.
Also in the area is a Go-Kart track which fits perfectly for the 18-30 crowd but there’s also a kids track too where little ones can ride electric cars in a circle.
