What's Tigaki Like

Tigaki is a tourist resort on the north coast of Kos about 11km from Kos town and about 17km from the airport so you can get to either in around 15-20 minutes.

Tigaki is based around the fantastic and huge Tigaki Beach as well as the central road that leads down to the beach.

The main road is where you’ll find the bars, restaurants, shops, travel agents, car and motorbike hire companies as well as a large supermarket at the far end away from the beach.

There’s a large amount of accommodation available in Tigaki and a lot of the hotels here have a decent sized swimming pool and some offer all inclusive packages too. The all-inclusive hotels tend to be a bit further out of town along the coast.

Tigaki Nightlife

The nightlife is pretty low key with a relaxed meal, drink and maybe a bit of karaoke being popular, this is a family resort after all.

There are a few cocktail bars, some of which stay open late into the night and play music but no real clubs.

If you want a more lively night then you can always get a taxi over to Kos town where you’ll find beach parties and large night clubs.

What to do around Tigaki

Tigaki is in a superb location, it’s close to the middle of the north coast so heading east or west is easy.

Within easy reach is the Go Karting track in Marmari and a horse riding school too, both are great options to keep youngsters in your group entertained for a couple of hours.

For a day out, the Lido water park is around 10 minutes away and has some fantastic slides, a lazy river and a slightly scary wave machine as well as a section for really young kids to splash about so a definite for those with a family.

For history buffs, the Asclepeion is just 10 minutes away and a must see whilst in Kos, it’s a huge 3 story ruin that dates back over 2000 years and was the site that Hippocrates taught medicine. For more go to our Asclepeion Kos page.

Reviews of Tigaki

Tigaki is a great location for a family holiday, the beach is massive and sandy, the kids really enjoyed playing in the sand and the table service was great for us. There's no end of restaurants and Mamas was a particular favourite of ours.
We got a car and travelled the island, there's loads to see in Kos and from Tigaki it's easy to get to both ends of the island. Highly recommended. The only downside was the lack of traditional Greek charm but you can just head to Zia for that.
