Relax close to Kos Town
This quiet corner of Kos is a peaceful spot 20 minutes’ stroll from Kos Town. Moving at a more relaxed pace than its neighbour, Lambi gives you the best of both worlds – plenty of peace and quiet, but with Kos Town’s amenities handily on your doorstep.
The resort has its own beach – a golden stretch that starts at Kos Town’s harbour and heads north. The crowds start to thin the closer the it gets to Lambi, so you’ve got less competition for towel space here. The well-stocked sands have all the sunbeds, beach bars and watersports you’ll need, too – and if you keep heading north, you’ll find the windiest spots where the windsurfers hang out, accompanied by more olive groves and fewer hotels.
The entertainment is a mix of modern and traditional Greek. You’re likely to find a few British pubs thrown in with the Greek tavernas, but there are still some spots for knocking back ouzo with the locals.
The flight to Kos is around 3 hours 45 minutes from the UK.
Transfer time from Kos airport to Lambi is approximately 35 minutes.
Kos has a long holiday season, with pool-perfect temperatures kicking in from around May and staying put well into October. Rain is a rarity, so expect (and dress for) long hours of sunshine. July and August are the hottest months, where temperatures stick firm in the low 30s.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.
In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers.
The official language of Greece is Greek. English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
