While Kos Town may be the bustling capital of the island of Kos, situated in the Dodecanese, the nearby resort of Lambi is at the other end of the spectrum. If you wish to be within easy reach of the bustling harbour town, but you don't necessarily want to be in the thick of it for the duration of your break in Greece, Lambi holidays would be the perfect choice for you.
Considered by many of the locals and regular visitors to be the home of one of the best beaches on the island, Lambi boasts soft golden sands that go on for almost a mile. Add a little adventure to your relaxing break with some of the adrenaline-fuelled watersports on offer and you have yourself the perfect recipe for a holiday to remember!
If you fancy something a little more up-tempo, Kos Town is only 20mins walk away, and with its copious number of discos, pubs and bars, you can guarantee that your wishes for after-dark revelries will be granted.
Whether you're a group of friends that want to be able to access Kos Town when the mood arises, or you're a family looking for a relaxing, laid-back break, great value package holidays to Lambi will tick all the right boxes.
At only 20 minutes' walk away, it would be rude not to visit the island's capital at least once during your stay - not just for the shops and bars that its streets are strewn with, but also the culture that it has in store. With a wealth of Greek and Roman ruins, including various columns and mosaics to marvel at, as well as the 15th century Knight's Castle and the Hippocrates Plane Tree, Kos Town certainly has its fair share of historical spots.
If you're looking to make a splash, you don't have to go far. The Lido Waterpark in nearby Mastihari offers a perfect day out for the whole family. As one of the largest waterparks in Greece, it's jam-packed with attractions to suit all ages, from wave pools to kamikaze slides.
Sanctuary of Asklepeios
As the most significant site on the island when it comes to archaeology, the Sanctuary of Asklepeios can be found 4km from Lambi and stands atop a hill, The Asklepeion. While the sensational views are reason enough to visit anyway, the ruins of the temples and baths that were once part of what was essentially the world's first hospital, are an even draw.
Watersports on the beach
There's a wide range of watersports available on Lambi Beach, from parasailing high above the waters to windsurfing on the waves. If you're an active type who has itchy feet if you sit still for too long, sign up for one of the fab watersports on offer. Alternatively, experienced surfers may prefer the choppier conditions that can be found just beyond the headland.
Explore the Depths on a Glass Bottom Boat
If you'd love to explore what goes on beneath the rippling surface of the Aegean but would prefer to stay dry whilst doing it, a trip on a glass bottom boat could be the answer.
Relax with some Hydrotherapy
Head to Thermes, 12km from Kos Town and pamper yourself for a while. Hydrotherapy is popular in these parts, and you'll feel truly invigorated following the treatments. The sea pool with hot springs apparently has healing qualities!
As a quieter, more laidback branch of Kos Town, Lambi is where people go to chill out, while also being within the vicinity of the action in Kos Town. Holidays to Lambi are a win win for those who like the best of both worlds from their summer break.
Vibrant and lively, Kos town has something for everyone. The culture and history on display is impressive, while the bars and discos will keep the night owls happy. Not to mention the beaches that you will have access to!
