We will be 1st timers to Kos this August and are a bit unsure of where to stay. Were two adults and a 13 year old.
Just to give an idea of type of places vibe we like places we have stayed recently include......Cephalonia Lassi, Corfu Paleokastritsa, Skiathos Koukanouries.
We like a sandy beach, lovely views, few beach bars, plenty of taverners /restaurants, etc. So a family place without it being too loud, no drunken teenagers staggering around! A base where we can get to other places of interest would be good too.
Have been told the best beach is at Tigaki but that some places there had closed up last year because business was slow ? What about the other resorts?
If you can recommend self catering places that are close to the beach that would be great.
