Yacht Charter Kos

Kos, the capital and main port of Kos Island, is on the north-east coast very close to the Turkish coast. It is a beautiful city, lush and green with palm lined beaches, a mountainous backdrop and interesting archeological sites from the Hellenistic and Roman periods. There are some particularly good mosaics to be found as well as some early Christian churches with impressive frescoes.


This busy tourist centre also offers a lively nightlife and good culinary scene and is one of the main charter bases in the Aegean; an excellent base for a sailing holiday around the Dodecanses island complex. Kos island, birthplace of Hippocrates and site of one of the first hospitals at Asklepion, is the third largest island in the Dodecanese and there are excellent sailing opportunities around the island and further afield. Leros, Kalymnos and Patmos are to the north and Tilos, Rhodes, Symi and Karpathos are to the south, plus thousands of smaller islands, islets and rocky outcrops.


Walking distance from the historic Kos Old Town is the full-service Kos Marina. From here you can sail to the lesser known islands of the Dodecanese that are hard to reach without a yacht.


Kos has an international airport; about 23 km away that services many Greek and European cities. Ferries run between Kos and the port of Piraeus all year round. Both high speed and conventional ferries that carry vehicles run this route. There are also passenger ferries from neighbouring islands and also from Turkey.


Kos is an excellent sailing destination for bareboat yacht charter. Sailors wanting guaranteed wind and longer passages will enjoy the sailing between the unspoilt and varied Dodecanese islands. The prevailing 'Meltemi' wind blows all summer from the NW. Force 4 to 6, offering exhilarating sailing. It can reach Force 7 and sometimes blows for days.
