Psalidi is a gorgeous and popular part of the Greek island of Kos. It provides holidaymakers with a long beach and all the amenities of a modern resort, while being far enough outside Kos Town to feel secluded. Holidays in Psalidi are popular with young and old alike – the nearby facilities offer all the sophistication of Greek island culture while the beaches themselves deliver adrenaline-filled water sports for the young and young-at-heart.
Visitors to the area will find accommodation catering for all budgets and taste, with five-star luxury hotels outnumbered by more quaint and modest bed-and-breakfast inns. The road from Kos Town to Psalidi – it’s less than ten minutes’ drive from the ferry to the beach – offers traditional eateries for travellers. Package holidays in Psalidi will often include a tour of the island.
The Askleipion, where legend states Hippocrates received his medical training, is one of the primary attractions on the island. The site offers views of the island and beyond and is a popular destination for holidaymakers on the island. Those whose package holiday deals don’t include food will certainly be tempted into Kos Town to sample some of the local delicacies – warming, traditional food with as much fish as you’d expect from a coastal island town.
Kos Town itself, and the historic Eleftherias Square, has plenty of restaurants, cafes and tavernas in which to enjoy Greek culture. The nightlife in and around Psalidi is dignified, sophisticated and lavish – prepare yourself for a night on the town followed by an authentic kebab on the way home.
Situated less than two miles East of Kos Town, Psalidi offers a pebble and sand beach equipped with deckchairs and parasols. Holidaymakers can enjoy views across the sea towards Turkey and the surrounding area provides bars, restaurants and hotels. Psalidi’s relaxing atmosphere and proximity to Kos Town make it one of the best beaches on the island.
