Apart from these, many of Kos’s water sports are also offered by the island's organised resorts located in Psalidi, Lambi, Kardamena, Kefalos, Tigaki, Marmari or Mastihari. Kos town has a rather narrow 'urban' beach, with many well-equipped beaches close by - in the sandy area Lambi, 4km (2.5 miles) to the north and in the pebbled area Psalidi, 3km (2 miles) to the south. The area Psalidi offers all kinds of water sport activities, whereas some popular centres in Marmari, Tigaki, Mastichari and Kefalos are packed with wind and kite surfers due to their high wind probability.
With a plethora of beaches to choose from, Kos Island is a water-sport fanatics' dreamland. So, if you belong to those who think the sea is not just for swimming and relaxing under the gentle sun and wish to add a little bit of fun to your holiday itinerary, Kos is ideal to enjoy every bump and wave of the sea!
