What's Marmari Like

Marmari is a relatively quiet tourist village on the north coast of Kos with Tigaki to the east and Mastichari to the west. It’ll take you about 20 minutes in a car or taxi to get to Kos town.

Transfer times from Kos airport will be from 20 minutes to just over half an hour depending on if you’re the first or last drop off so it’s nice and quick, you’ll be on the beach or in the pool before you know it.

Marmari is based around a single main road that heads down to the beach and a coastal road that runs alongside the 2km long sand beach.

There’s a good selection of hotels, with most being down at the beach end. There’s large all-inclusive options with large pools that are perfect for kids and smaller apartments too. Be aware that some, particularly the larger hotels are not always in the town itself but along the beach front so check the actual location of the hotel before booking.

The good thing about Marmari is that it has everything you need as a tourist, there’s supermarkets, vehicle rental shops, cash machines, restaurants and tavernas all right on the edge of Marmari beach so it’s perfect for a package holiday without being packed with people all the time.

Marmari Nightlife

The nightlife in Marmari is pretty basic, there’s no night clubs but there are some cocktail bars that stay open quite late, these are mostly down by the beach.

If you want some more entertainment in the evenings then Tigaki is a short taxi ride away and has a bit more to offer with Karaoke, Greek nights and bars with live music or DJs.

What to do around Marmari

There’s a go karting track nearby as well as a couple of horse riding schools. On top of that you are in a perfect location for a lot of the attractions, including ease of access to Kos town, the Lido water park, the Byzantine castle of Pyli and the Asclepion too.

For those that like to be active, head down to the beach where you can try some water sports which includes wind surfing and kite surfing too.
