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.
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.
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 on the road that leads to Marmari and a horse riding school close to the Salt Lake
, 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
