Kardamena is the nightlife hotspot in Kos and with its lengthy, golden sand beach and lines of bars, it’s the ideal place for groups of friends to really let go and have fun. The resort is great for all night partying but there’s also lots of things to do during the day. With warm, clear water, snorkelling and diving are exciting activities for the whole family. You can also try windsurfing or head out to sea on a boat trip. 

Tavernas and beach bars will become your second home during your holiday and you’ll soon see why. With the freshest Greek seafood and classic dishes like gyros and fries, this cuisine is perfect for recuperation after a wild night out. 

Diving and snorkelling are two of the most popular things to do on holiday here. In summer, the clear water is warm, and the sub-tropical marine life is easy to see. Lots of dive schools offer taster sessions or longer courses so no matter what your experience, there’s something for you. Hiring a mask and snorkel is an easy way to see under the water, but if you prefer life on top of the ocean, you can try things like windsurfing. Boat trips are another fun activity where you can see Kos from the sea, relax on deck with a cocktail, or take a swim right from the boat. 

Stretching from both sides of the harbour, Kardamena’s beach treats visitors to golden sand, warm waters for swimming and a huge range of water sport activities. Rent a sun lounger and umbrella and make camp for the day; just let the Mediterranean sun utterly relax you. When you get hungry, simply head over to a nearby bar or café for a snack. Hop in a taxi to find other beaches, or take a boat trip to the ruins of Agios Stefanos.

Nightlife is one of the main reasons visitors book holidays to Kardamena. With beach parties, 24-hour bars and world-class clubs, the music simply doesn’t stop. Kick off your night trying the local spirits with your mezze platters at a local taverna, before following the crowds to the coolest bars. Bar Street is where it’s all happening, and this strip of bars, cafés and clubs will provide days and days of entertainment. Get stuck into everything from live music and themed parties, to karaoke and bingo. If you’re still raring to go, move on to the harbour front area, one of the best places in the resort for nightclubs.
