Pyli, sometimes spelled Pili, is a traditional little village close to the middle of Kos
island, about 15km south west of Kos Town
and about 10km from the islands airport.
The village is centred around the small square that's home to many traditional stone buildings, cafes and tavernas. There’s also a number of shops including a couple of art shops with locally made paintings, pottery and jewellery.
There is some accommodation available in Pyli but for most people it’s more likely a place to day trip to or visit rather than somewhere to base your entire holiday.
Nightlife in Pyli is minimal, there's no late night bars, no karaoke, no Greek nights and definitely no clubs. This isn't the sort of place where you can go on bar crawls or stay up all night drinking.
In general you'll just have a nice evening meal and a few drinks in the restaurant and that'll be it.
Close to Pyli is the byzantine castle called Paleo Pili
which is definitely worth a look round with spectaular views on offer there too. There's also the tourist village of Marmari
which is where you'll find the nearest beach, Marmari Beach
Also in the area is Kardamena
which is great for a night out partying and Zia
which is perfect for a romantic evening meal whilst watching the sun go down.
