Tigaki, Kos Island

The tourist resort of Tigaki is situated at a distance of 11 kilometers western to the town of Kos and 7 kilometers northern to the big village of Asfendiou. It counts some 250 permanent residents. Located within a small, overgrown valley, the place has been developed during the last decades along the homonymous long sandy beach of the northern coast of the island. Even in past times, the place used to be the holiday resort of the locals, mainly the residents of Asfendiou.

The environment is mild but quite impressive. You will see plants and green all around and many flowers which add up their colors to this exciting landscape.

A lot of alternatives for accommodation are available at the beach, within the settlement and in the broader area. All of them are open from April or May until October and offer to their guests good service and full facilities. Most of the lodgings are found in a nice environment (natural or artificial) peaceful enough, without excess noise and crowds. As a result of all these, Tigaki has become one of the most popular destinations of the island.

Several snack bars and fast foods are available for light meals and refreshments. At the center of the village you will find several stores of any kind; they are open until late in the evening. The place has intense nightlife and there are various clubs, bars and discos, where fun lasts until early morning.

You will enjoy swimming, sunbathing and sea sports at the huge sandy beach (10 kilometers long) with crystal clear sea, awarded more than once the blue flag, not only for being very clean, but also because of the excellent organisation and the facilities offered to swimmers. The sea is very shallow, ideal for families with small children. The fans of windsurfing will adore this place, as they will enjoy very much the big waves of the open sea. And, if you don’t know windsurfing, but you feel like trying, a training center is available at the beach.
