Perfect for those who want all the party-centric possibilities offered by neighbouring Kos Town, holidays to Psalidi, Kos offer all that but with somewhere quiet to retire to at the end of the day. Compared to the rest of Kos, this lovely resort is a much more sedate resort, offering a sweeping sand and shingle beach that seems to melt into shallow waters. While it’s ideal for families with younger children, there’s plenty for those with teens to see and do, including an exciting array of watersports. By night, this resort maintains its laid-back ambience, replacing Kos’ lively bars and clubs with quiet restaurants and local tavernas. Popular with both couples and families, holidays to Psalidi, Kos island are a chance to soak up some sunshine, surrounded by peace and tranquillity.
Things to do
While Psalidi might have all the ingredients for a quiet beach-based holiday, there are plenty of things to see and do in the area. The capital, Kos Town, is just 10 minutes away, giving you access to superb shopping, vibrant nightlife, and ferries to other Dodecanese islands. However, if you’d rather enjoy quiet bars and relaxed restaurants by night and sun-splashed beaches by day, Psalidi is the place to be. Have a bash at some watersports or take the children along the coast to the Lido Water Park. Couples can take advantage of the island’s position in the Aegean and enjoy some of the best sunsets in the world.
Given its position in the Aegean Sea, Psalidi enjoys a Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and mild winters. For the best weather, book your Psalidi holidays between June and September, when the mercury hovers between the mid and high 20s °C.
Flights land at Kos Island International Airport (KGS), which is just under 40 minutes’ drive from the centre of the resort.
