It was strange to experience the two extremes of water temperature in and out of the cove. A fantastic experience but I wouldn't like to walk back to the car park at the height of Summer. That hill was steep!

Therma Beach Closed? (1 Replies)
Hi I've read that Therma Beach is closed with a "STOP" sign and there are no organised trips going because of damage caused by the earthquake. However I've also seen recent reviews from people seeming to have visited and so if they've visited since the earthquake what the actual siutuation was. I assume that they went by car, quad bike or public bus?

This is the TA site for Therma and you're right, it's closed but people are going. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Rev…
Visiting Kos (4 Replies)
hi! Me and my bf are going to Kos for one week - staying in Kardamena. We think of renting a scooter and visit Kos Town (any suggestions?), Asklepion, Zia and Therma Beach. Do you have any other suggestions? How many days you think we shoul rent a scooter? Thenx!

Response fromCleopatra|
Hi there I would certainly think about hiring a scooter for three or four days so you can get about and see most of the island. Kos Town definitely deserves a half day or more if you are interested in the archaelogicals site, Askelpion (closed on Mondays), Zia and the stretch of coast out towards Therma Beach are all worth while. Mastihari, Tigiaki, and Marmari are worth visiting and can be combines in one day. Down the other end of the island there is the Kamari Bay and Agios Stephanos,...More

We'd like to visit Therma Beach but don't want to do it with an organised tour but use local buses instead. I know that the best time is early morning/late evening but don't think that will be possible by bus. Anybody know if mid afternoon is quieter than mid morning - the trip I found was morning so don't know if all the organised trips are before lunch. Where would we catch the bus from in Kos, what number/destination and does anyone have a timetable (out and return). Wouldn't want to get...More
