On the coastal road passing through Psalidi in the Agios Fokas region some 12 km from Kos Town there are sulphur springs that feed into a rock pool, where the hot water from the spring mixes with the cooler water from the sea to produce a warm therapeutic bath!. The waters have been tested and it is said to have healing properties for those with skin ailments. Second only to Rhodes in popularity and population, Kos (koss) is a mellowed-down version of its big sister to the south. Beyond the resort hotels that welcome arrivals, Kos offers another less commercial face once you let the island get under your skin. Elongated and running almost west to east, Kos offers a spread of things to see and do – from beaches and bars to cycling and cars with which to tour verdant hills, remote coves, and high-energy beach resorts.
