Day 1: Kos - Tilos

7 day route from Kos

Marina Kos will be the first stop on this route. First, prepare the yacht for the cruise, familiarize yourself with the equipment, and discuss important details with the manager. After everything is accomplished, you’ll have time left to take a walk and explore Kos.

Kos

Situated in the south-eastern part of the Aegean Sea, Kos is the third-largest island in the Southern Sporades after Rhodes and Karpathos. The two main descriptors commonly used in referring to Kos are “garden of the Aegean Sea” and “birthplace of Hippocrates.” Both are true. The island’s natural terrain is highly varied with cliffs, ravines, coniferous forests and beaches to suit any taste. Kos is filled with the springtime scent of blossoming lilies swirling into summer where it then gives way to the aroma of ripe citrus fruit.

The main attraction on Kos is its large temple complex, built in honour of Asclepius the Healer. Its three stories used to house a medical school, a museum of anatomy, thermal-water baths, and a shrine. Today, the ruins of the Asclepion serve as a theater stage. Kos’ other attractions include its Joanite fortress, Hippocrates museum, ancient Agora, and the old mosques in the capital city of Kos. The entire island is also sprinkled with numerous monuments, fortresses, and basilicas.

The island’s main cities are concentrated along the northern and southern coasts. Yachts most commonly enter the Kos marina from the north and maintain course towards the south. You can even sail around the whole island if you wish, stopping in the port of Kardamaina, the Kefalos bay, and in the northern villages of Marmari, Mastichari, and Tigaki with its 10-kilometer-long beach.

Tilos

The island of Tilos is one of the smallest in the Dodecanese Islands. Its three villages have a combined population of just 300 inhabitants, making Tilos a truly secluded spot. Nineteen beaches, twelve mountains with natural springs, seven medieval castles, a Byzantine monastery, two hundred churches, a cave with traces of past digs, and sixteen conservation areas make Tilos a modern wonder.

The island’s main port is Livadia. Here you’ll find Tilos’ most popular beach and a handful of perfectly lovely cafes and restaurants. Not far from the city is the old settlement of Micro Chorio. From there the road north leads to Megalo Chorio, the present-day capital of Tilos, and the road west leads to the island’s most beautiful beach – Eristos. Agios-Antonios is the island’s second port. Situated nearby is the beautiful sandy beach of Plaka. From there the road leads to the Monastery of St. Panteleimon – the island’s protector.
