What's Platani like

Platani is a small village on the outskirts of Kos town, it’s out towards the Asclepeion and roughly 3km from the town centre so walkable if you want to build up an appetite.

The village is home to a lot of people of Turkish decent who know the village as Kermentes, due to Turkish people being largely Muslim there’s also a large Mosque but it’s not open to the public so not somewhere you can go inside or look around.

The Turkish population here also means you’ll find the best Turkish restaurants in and around Platani making it a unique place on the island to visit, particularly for a nice lunch or an evening meal. 

The village is home to a handful of restaurants and a couple of supermarkets but there isn’t a huge amount of accommodation available, this doesn't matter too much though as it’s so close to Kos Town you can simply stay in a hotel in the capital and visit as often as you like.

If you'd like to stay in the area then have a look at the Platani page of booking.com here. Alternatively find a great package holiday through Tui here.

Platani nightlife

The nightlife in Platani is minimal, there's a  group of restaurants around the centre of the village and this area has a good vibe to it as the sun goes down, there's no real late night bars and certainly no clubs so a nice meal and a few drinks is probably about it.

What to do around Platani

Platani is an inland village so there’s no beaches nearby, you can however get to a few beaches quite easily. Take a look at Kos Town beach, Lambi beach and Psalidi beach as they’re all within reasonable distance.

As Platani is so close to Kos Town you can easily visit all the attractions that the capital has to offer, there's several historical sites, museums and much more, check out the Kos sight seeing guide for more info.
