Birthplace of Hippocrates, green and lush with lovely beaches, pretty villages, fascinating archaeological sites and a great nightlife, Kos Island sits in the middle of the Dodecanese chain of Greek islands that hug the Turkish coastline between Rhodes in the south and Patmos in the north just 3 nautical miles from Asia Minor coast. Kos is long and thin, about 28 miles by 7 miles and it is mostly flat and low-lying, especially in the north and west. The lack of hills has helped to make cycling very popular and there is no end of bicycle rental outlets and even some dedicated cycling roads between the big hotels. The capital is also called Kos and it's both an historical and modern town - with many archaeological sites opened in the streets and many resorts along the coasts.
