If you’re looking for something a little more authentically Greek for your stay, the rest of the island offers up oodles of secluded beaches, sleepy forgotten villages and green mountains and forests to explore. History buffs should definitely check out Hippocrates’ stunningly preserved sanatorium, as well as the Byzantine wonder of Kos town’s ancient fortress, and the wonderfully cool and informative Archaeological Museum in Kos town too.

Drive Around Kos
Without your own set of wheels, navigating your way around Kos can be difficult. Local buses do serve the island, but they tend to be limited in their hours of operation, and with regard to destinations too. You’ll find car rental options at the main ferry ports and towns, all around Kardemena, and at all major hotels and resorts too. Negotiating on price can be a little more difficult when it comes to car rental in Kefalonia, as an island-wide tariff is now applied to all retailers, so it’s advisable to book in advance with GoCarRental.com.
