Location: Tingaki, Kos, Greece
Dreaming of turquoise water, orange skies and ice cold drinks in the sunshine? Tingaki, Kos is a perfect get away for those wanting to clear their mind with still plenty to see and places to go. Since I was a little girl, I've enjoyed going away to Greece's many beautiful islands for everything from family holiday's and ten day's of pool loungin' to its more flamboyant party scene, and Kos has a balanced, beautiful mixture of both.
Kos, which is often associated with its wild nights in Kardamena, also offers more peaceful resorts with white beaches and turquoise swimming pools. Having never realised there was more to Kos than just clubbing, I stayed a week in Tingaki which featured breath taking sunsets as well as plenty of great places to wine and dine, and a short walk to the beach to relax. There's also plenty of opportunities to get out and see more - you can take a bus ride to Kos town for shopping and a look at the beautiful architecture, or venture into the night over to Kardamena for something a bit wilder. If you want to stay local for a drink, there's still plenty of bars offering strobes and great cocktail menus in the area.
One of the things that should be on the top of your to-do list when visiting Kos is to watch the sunset go down, and if you travel up to the mountains of Zia you can have dinner, a glass of wine, and enjoy the beautiful view pictured above. Alternately, you can find loads of other great spots all around the island, or simply enjoy a sunlit stroll along the beach as the evening draws in. Wow, I feel like I just wrote an advert for First Choice's holiday brochure. It really is that bloody brilliant.
