Sun and fun: drive to Kos and the beach of Marmari
The long sandy beach of Marmari is one of the most popular destinations in Kos. Here you can enjoy bathing, snorkelling, surfing or water skiing.
From Kos you can drive to this idyll via the only road to Marmari, which runs along the coast as a promenade. Small shops, restaurants and bars await your visit.
Enjoy the holiday and discover Kos and its most beautiful spots by car. From the car rental office in Kos there is only one road across the island, taking you to many small villages and bays. If you hire a car, you can also take the ferry to Kos’s neighbouring islands.
Kos car hire tips: Easter in Greece
The inhabitants of Kos have little time to celebrate, because life on the island is marked by work. Nevertheless, no one can escape the important religious festivals of the year. The highlight is the Orthodox Easter festival, which is traditionally opened with processions on Good Friday and is celebrated with fireworks in the evening of Easter Sunday.
If you are driving on Kos in a hire car on Easter Sunday, you will see the inhabitants of the island busy in their gardens and gathering in taverns. The enticing smell of grilled meat whets the appetite from afar, because on this day the traditional Easter lamb is prepared on a spit. Of course, visitors are also welcome to celebrate the most important day of the year together with the Greeks.
Kos tours in a hire car: the taverns of Zia
Not far from the town of Kos is the small mountain village of Zia, which you can reach via the town of Asfendiou. In addition to the small shops and cosy taverns, the natural beauty of Zia is another attraction: Nowhere on Kos is the sunset more beautiful than up here in the mountains. From the terraces of the taverns, the magnificent view takes in Kos, the sea and the offshore islands.
Already on the drive in your hire car to Asfendiou you are rewarded with wonderful views over the island. From Asfendiou the route includes many serpentines, which in a cabriolet or roadster is a pleasure and after a hot day the most enjoyable way of appreciating the welcome cooling of the fresh air of the mountains.
