The arrival point for many visitors to Kos is a beautiful port that borders a collection of historical attractions, including Roman ruins and a medieval castle.

For approximately 2,000 years, Kos Port has played an important role in the life of the island. First as a trading post and in more recent years as a tourist gateway to the rest of Kos. It is also a pleasant place for a stroll and to enjoy traditional Greek cuisine in nearby tavernas.

Walk along the dock to admire the variety of boats moored in this natural harbor. Stop for refreshments in a café or restaurant and then tour the ruins of Kos Castle, which overlooks the port. The medieval fortified complex was built by the Knights of Saint John to protect the area from attacks by the Ottoman Empire. Wander through the ancient remains and pause to take in the exceptional views of the port and the Aegean Sea. There is also a museum here showcasing some of the archeological finds from this site.

After your castle visit, explore some of the other historical sites that are within easy walking distance of the port. Go to the ancient agora to see the remains of temples and sit on one of the stone seats in the old Roman amphitheater.

Come back to the port for a day trip to neighboring Dodecanese Islands, including Rhodes. Ferries leaving the port also travel to locations along the Turkish coastline. You can also charter a boat to take you to some of Kos's remote beaches.

The Port of Kos is the main port of the island and is in Kos Town, on the northeast coast. There are daily ferry services from here to Piraeus, Athens and the islands of Leros, Patmos and Rhodes. You can also travel to Santorini and Syros several times a week. One of the popular Turkish destinations that can be reached from here is Bodrum, a resort town with beautiful beaches and an ancient castle.

If you arrive in Kos and don’t want to take your luggage very far, book a room in one of the hotels located close to the port.
