Stroll along Psalidi's scenic promenade
Often described as a suburb to the capital, Kos Town can be reached within a 25 minute walk along the scenic promenade. Along the promenade you'll find a selection of Greek tavernas and bars, as well as a family bakery, souvenir shops and a supermarket for those holiday essentials. For the more adventurous, there's a scuba diving school and a mountain bike shop that organises trips into the island’s rugged interior.
Holidays in Psalidi are ideal for families due to its safe, gently-shelving, beach that makes it suitable for even the youngest of travellers, excitedly wishing to paddle their feet in the shallow Aegean Sea. There is also plenty to enjoy for the elder ones, such as watersports.
Looking out to the horizon, picturesque views across to the Turkish mainland will leave you mesmerised. Plus, only a 20 minute walk away is Therma Beach, where the hot springs can be found. So make a visit to enjoy the spa like benefits.

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.
