For visitors who make sport an integral part of their daily lives even while on holiday, Kos offers a variety of activities to keep fit, with cycling being high up on the list. In addition to cycling on Kos, visitors can go trekking or mountain biking in settings that are second-to-none, have a game of basketball on one of the many free access courts, play soccer or mini-football, beach volleyball, tennis, miniature golf or even try their hand at horseback riding.
The island’s picture-perfect beaches, their turquoise-blue crystal-clear water, in some spots warm and shallow and gradually deepening, in others deeper and with perfect waves being formed by the winds, offer visitors an abundance of water sports choices for all ages and tastes. The soft sand and sun chairs and umbrellas available at the organized beaches on Kos are just a few more tempting reasons to extend your day at the beach until sunset. If surfing is your water sport of choice, Kos is the place for you, with many beaches offering lessons by expert surfers who are trained to teach this popular sport in comfort and safety.
