samanthajaynehobbs 19 Jun 2014I never want to leaveKardamena gets a bad rap which I think is really unfortunate. Yes, it is a party town with lots of bars and clubs, but there are also a plethora of wonderful restaurants and tavernas serving traditional and delicious Greek cuisine.
It is easy to avoid the bar scene and have a lovely chilled out evening on the seafront-the harbour has been developed tastefully in recent years.
During the day there are an abundance of pools, snack bars, beach areas, there really is something for everyone here. If you prefer a quiet stretch of coast, why not try Banana Beach at the north end of the village.
The biggest seller for me in Kardamena though is most definitely the people. There is something very special about the locals and tourists alike. And by tourists I mean those of us who come here year on year and consider Kos to be our second home. There is nowhere like it and that special something is very precious to Kardamena. If you go to the right places and meet the right people, you will never want to leave!
joyce4 22 May 2009Avoid drunken touristsTour operators have changed deeply the costumes of many places in Kos. Kardamena look like a Liverpool surrounding with drunken English boys singing football songs. I suggest you take better control of the drunken guys and do not let them driving without hamlet. The all inclusive is the best way to destroy local economy, especially taverns, and offer low quality dishes. Many taverns were closed or were going to close because the all inclusive of many hotels is putting down the business. But epecially in the surrounding of Kefalos or even more far as Saint Theologos where the massive tourism did not strogly impact so far, the food was still excellent and you could see a smiling owner serving you.
Don't sleep in Kardamena or Kos Town, unless you want the noise all nigth. choose a nice apartament in Kefalos or Mastichari and from there by scooter you can reach easily the nicest spots on the island. I am sure you will love Kos. It has so many beauties to give you. Just avoid any place where the English young men go, they destroy everything!
elenadiev 01 Aug 2008Simple and lovelyWe visited Kardamena when a friend of ours on Kos suggested to make a trip to Nisyros. So, we went to Kardamena to take the boat to Nisyros. It was a small and nice village with a lot of tourists. Wide roads, lovely cafes at the beach, nice coast to swim. I saw many clubs there, which were closed because we went on the daytime but I know that nightlife was rich in that village. When we returned from Nisyros, at night, we ate at "O Nisiotis" at the waterfront, great food, I trully recommend it.
