Kos Island Independent Day Trip from Bodrum
After docking at the port, how you spend your time on the gorgeous island is up to you. All entrance fees, food and drinks are at your own expense. Follow the footsteps of sun worshipers to the island’s best beaches and enjoy a day of soaking up the sun on the sand. Visit Paradise Beach for soft sand and calm waters, relax in tranquil seclusion at Limnionas Beach or maybe stroll along the pebbled shores of Agios Theologos Beach.
If you are keen to discover the island’s urban delights, head into Kos town to explore its palm-fringed streets, thronged with restaurants, bars and shops. The town is home to some of the island’s more interesting historical landmarks and Roman ruins. Perhaps pay a visit to the Castle of the Knights (Kos Nerantzia Castle), to explore the ruined towers, battlements and ramparts that date to the days of the knights’ reign. The group of Christian crusaders occupied the city from the 14th century for some 200 years.
Having enjoyed your day, make your own way back to the island’s port at the prearranged time. Then, simply re-board your hydrofoil, and cruise back over the sea to Bodrum. Your independent day trip then finishes with a drop-off at your Bodrum hotel.

This is a great tour, but expensive one as some friends book similar tour with much cheaper prize from bodrum port travel agent. As this is an independent tour, the driver just took us to the port, in the border between bodrum and greece and we should explore ourselves. But all the important tourism attractions are closed by the greece port and easily reached in walking distance, eg, the castle, hippocratoes tree, the cathedral etc. Make sure, we know where will be going, as I passed the hippocrates tree many times, but did not notice any board explaining this tree. I found the tree after the third/fourth times passing. Local people are helpful to show the direction. We dont need any tour guide to explore the attractions! Overall, it is an easy booking!
The best part of the tour was the organized pick up and drop off-saved us a lot of hassle and confusion. Of course there is no tour per se, since you are on your own but the small difference in what you pay for this tour and doing it totally by yourself i.e., with no pick up and drop off is well worth it.
